Lesson Description

In this ESL lesson plan for adults and teens, students watch a commercial/holiday video and do a listening exercise about a man learning English so that he'll be able to communicate with his granddaughter, who he meets for the first time. It includes discussion questions and conversation activities about Christmas, wish lists, and learning English. In the first post-viewing section, students have a follow-up discussion about the video, and discuss some of the methods the man uses to learn English. In the second post-viewing part, is a follow-up wish list task for students to do alone or in groups.

Video Description
