      The weather

      The aim of this lesson is to give students practice in reading for specific information in an online article about the weather.

      Students will also have an opportunity to practise pronunciation, word stress and collocations connected with the weather.

      The plan is based around a text from the British Council LearnEnglish Central website at:
      http://learnenglish.britishcouncil.org/en/magazine/weather

      The webpage also has a variety of online interactive activities. We have also included the text for students and teachers without Internet access in class.
