English in my home aims to give ESOL learners the confidence and the language to deal with situations they may encounter in their homes. Someone at the door aims to give learners confidence and equip them with the language necessary to deal with situations where unexpected callers arrive at the door.
Very often students know the meaning of a word but don’t know how to use it correctly, because they don’t know which words go with it, i.e. collocations. This activity helps students expand their collocational knowledge of the nouns they already know, but it can be adapted for other parts of speech.
Since learners bring different experiences and identities to the classroom, it follows that the same activities and strategies will not suit everybody in the class. This section focuses on how technology can support differentiated learning and enhance learner choice.
‘Working in a Shop’ is aimed primarily at learners who are already working in retail or who want to find out more about working in the sector, but will appeal to any learners who need to talk about processes, prices or career development. The resource uses authentic sound recordings as a springboard for practice in all the skills in this context.
