A Guide to Irish Accents

This is a complete lesson plan and handout which is especially useful for Ss living and working in Ireland. It is a humourous video depicting the variety of Irish accents and how they can be recognised. It's great for showing and discussing language variety and can be used to encourage Ss to discuss the variety in their own L1. Even if your Ss don't live in Ireland, it can be a good springboard for a discussion on how accents and even words vary across all languages. It will be quite challenging but is good for sound discrimination also. The lesson plan and links to videos are included in the download. It can be a fun lesson for any class and Ss should be encouraged to 'play' with the language and take on different accents.

The above downloadable teaching material is meant for high school and adults at Upper-intermediate (B2) and Advanced (C1) level. It is excellent for working on your students' Listening and Speaking skills. It features the topic and words of Ireland.
