Conversation Class Lesson Plan

Section: Intermediate Conversation
Date: 11th Nov 2010

Class theme/topics discussed:
Sport (in Germany)

How did you pick this theme or topic?
Everybody knows something about sport, so everybody can say something about this topic

How did you present the material? (handouts, group work, general discussion, student presentations, etc.)
I gave the students pictures of the most popular German sports and asked them what they know about them and what rules there are. We listed up some new vocabulary on the white board. After that each of my students explained the rules for their favorite sport.
Finally, we played crab soccer for 5min.

How did students react?
Liked the topic and talking about their sport

Did they engage with each other and you?

What materials or media did you use? (articles, satellite tv, digital projector, etc.)
Pictures of the different sports.

Would you recommend this activity for a future class?

Why or why not?
Explaining the rules of different sports produced a lot of talk, was interesting/informative and students liked it.
