Destination UK: Wales

Average: 3.8 (15 votes)

This Essential UK lesson plan is part of series of our entitled Destination UK. They look at the four countries that make up the United Kingdom.

This one gives learners an insight into life in Wales. The Destination UK lessons would be greatly enhanced by bringing in your personal experiences of living in or visiting the country so some adaptation may be necessary.

Task 1 introduces Wales and gives you the chance to find out how much your students already know about the country. Task 2 is a guessing game for students to identify four internationally famous Welsh celebrities and Task 3 is a quiz about Wales. Task 4 is a jigsaw reading task from the British Council’s UK in focus website and Task 5 looks at the Welsh language. Task 6 asks students to plan a trip to Wales in groups and prioritise activities they’d like to do.
