Inside Out

e-lesson Week starting: 14th July 2008

1. Holiday choices
This week’s lesson is on the theme of tourism, and takes a look at a few of the options
people have when choosing a holiday.

Level
Pre-intermediate and above (equivalent to CEF level A2-B1 and above)

How to use the lesson


1. Ask your students what their favourite kinds of holiday and favourite holiday
destinations are, and why. Do they think there are any problems associated with
international tourism?

2. Give your students five to ten minutes to read through Worksheet A, encouraging
them to look up new vocabulary. (Note that a few of the words that might be new are
not in the glossary because they form part of Exercise 1.) Tell them they are going to
answer a series of questions on the text, but that they shouldn’t write anything down
at this stage.

3. Divide the students into pairs and hand out Worksheet B. Ask the students to work
together to complete Exercise 1, in which they have to find the words to match the
definitions. To make the exercise easier you could provide some of the missing
letters.

4. Check answers in open class.

5. Keeping the students in their pairs, ask them to move on to Exercise 2, in which
they have to answer true/false/doesn’t say questions.

6. Check answers in open class.

7. Hand out Worksheet C and ask the students to work together to complete the two
crosswords.
