Speaking-Giving Instruction(5:00)

In this clip, the teacher of a novice-high ESL class is providing the instructions for a speaking activity. The students recently studied adjectives, the past tense, and how to talk about daily events in the past. This activity reviews these topics.

In this clip, students work in pairs. Each student has a sentence on his or her back. Students do not know what the sentence is. Their partner has to (1) read the sentence, and then (2) talk about their weekend, acting in the way which the sentence on their partners’ back describes.
