Me and my family gives learners the language needed to be able to talk about themselves, their feelings and people around them. The main foci of the lessons in this pack are speaking, listening and vocabulary; there are also some opportunities to develop reading and writing skills.
There are three units in this pack All about me, Describing my feelings and health and My family, friends and others. These nine lessons complement each other, but can be used separately. Timings are approximate and may take more or less time that shown, depending on your learner.
Bearing in mind that some learners’ oral skills are in advance of their literacy skills, accessing the materials in this pack does not require strong reading and writing ability on the part of the learner. However, there are activities which aim to improve basic literacy.
Where real objects are available (realia) as a stimulus for activities it is good to use them. In the event of realia being unavailable pictures have been provided for all lessons.
