This lesson plan for teachers of teenagers and adults at pre intermediate level explores the theme of TV programmes. Students will make a poster and develop speaking skills in the form of a role play.

Introduction

In this lesson the students will look at the television viewing habits of young people in the UK and compare them to the habits of young people in their own country.

They will begin by making television posters, then they will do a split reading activity in pairs. The text is about television habits in the UK. They will complete a questionnaire about their own viewing habits and discuss how their habits are different from those of young people in the UK. There is an optional role-playing activity where students have to agree on what to watch on television.

Today I have taught this lesson to my 9-th form.They liked to debate, make poster and describe their favourite programms .Thank you for this lesson plan

My students liked to make posters very much. It was fun for them and mainly it involved all the students to the lesson.  We also did Venn diagram. They were very keen on comparing their habits with the UK teenagers.
