This lesson plan for teachers of teenagers and adults at CEFR Level B1 / B2 explores the theme of Wales. Learners will develop their knowledge of Wales, as well as practising their vocabulary and listening skills.

Whitesands beach and Carn Llidi, Pembrokeshire, Wales

In this lesson, learners hear a man being interviewed about his life in Wales. First, learners share what they already know about Wales, then identify true/ false sentences about the country. Activities support them in listening to an interview that may be challenging for some. They practise taking notes while listening, then have the option to develop intensive listening skills. Finally, they write true / false sentences about their own or another country. Follow-up activities are suggested for learners who are interested in the topic. 

A student worksheet accompanies this lesson. However, teachers can use a presentation for a no-printing option.
