Idioms - Speaking Activity

Sylvinha 2017-04-01 15:40:04

A speaking activity based on idioms. The presentation was built with several idioms, each one with an image, the idiom, its meaning, and an example. Fits private lessons for intermediate/advanced adults as well as high school advanced students. The method is as follows: a picture is shown first, eliciting the student to talk about it and guess what idiom it is about. After some attempts, the title is shown. The teacher then asks its meaning. Same procedure with it by showing the next sentence containing the explanation. Examples are elicited, with the help with the next hidden sentence (shown by the click of the mouse) with the teacher's example. Excellent activity for vocabulary enrichment, fluency, and more.
In class, this projetable might be used partially, as a "five minutes activity" at the end of the lesson or as part of a whole lesson regarding idioms.
Attention: the images were partly taken from Pinterest. Most of the rest were created by the author.

The above downloadable printable is a great resource for high school students and adults at Upper-intermediate (B2) and Advanced (C1) level. It was designed for developing your class' Speaking skills. It features the topic and words of Idioms.
