Lots of our students like reading and talking about celebrity gossip (although not everyone admits it!). In this lesson students take part in a role playing game in which a celebrity couple are interviewed by a journalist. Then they work in groups to write a report for a gossip magazine.


This lesson plan for teachers of teenage and adult students at level B1 is about celebrity gossip. Students will take part in a role play and write a report.
