Socialising 2: Keeping conversations going

After struggling to break the ice, the next obstacle is to keep the conversation going beyond the initial conversation. For this reason, this lesson aims to provide students with a bank of around 15 questions that they would feel comfortable asking in a conversation with a new acquaintance. They will also learn more general techniques involving different types of questions and the skill of turn-taking. Finally, they will practise all the skills from the lesson in a role-play game.

In this lesson, students will be introduced to the popular song ‘What can it be?’ They will listen to the song, complete comprehension activities, practise the animals, mythical creatures and body parts in the song, as well as the ‘has got’ and possessive ’s structures, and sing the song. Finally students can do some extension work based on the song, inventing, writing and singing about their own mythical creature.
