This lesson gives learners an insight into how UK general elections work and helps them develop their knowledge of political lexis and practise their speaking skills.

In the lesson, learners watch the beginning of a short video entitled General Election Explained, which can be used to spark debate and provide background knowledge. They will consider why it is important to vote and take part in a role play in which political candidates try to persuade people to use their vote.
