Love your lesson plans and they really work.
Just am puzzled: here the students had to put in adjectives from the listening BEFORE doing the listening!!! How do we do that? I thought I'd get them to think of synonyms and then listen and write down the ones in the text.
Thanks for the feedback and your comment - I've taken a look, and I see what you mean - the first activity is not especially clear! I think the idea here is that first (before listening), the students check the meaning of the synonyms and antonyms, and give example sentences. Then the first general or "gist" listening task is to write down adjectives that they hear from the audio - and to match them to the adjectives in the table. Then they try to answer the "after listening" questions and finally they listen to the audio a final time to check their answers. I hope that makes it a little clearer - we'll update the lesson notes.
Hope you and your students enjoy using this resource!
So true as well, put a smile on my face even before teaching. Let's see what my students make of it! Thank you.
