Class theme/topics discussed:
Announcement for the Session with Japanese students from Japan
How was your weekend? Try to keep on talking when I said stop. (Warm-up)
What’s the Truth?
Find your BEST FRIEND( I couldn’t finish this for today)
How did you pick this theme or topic?
Intermediate students need the skill of keep on talking, telling their opinions and their stories by their own words.
How did you present the material? (handouts, group work, general discussion, student presentations, etc.)
First of all, I gave them 6 sentences. 3 of them are truth and the others are false. Students needs to guess which ones are truth. I divided them with a pair, and they discuss why do they think so. Students can ask me some indivisual questions about the sentences what I said. Next was students’ turn to create 3 sentences with one is turth and the other are false. (this time was group work) . Share their answers.
How did students react?
They really enjoyed this game, and it took longer than I expected!
Did they engage with each other and you?
Yes, they engaged with each other and me! I think they did a good job with telling their opinions and their stories.
What materials or media did you use? (articles, satellite tv, digital projector, etc.)
Only papar for taking a note.
Would you recommend this activity for a future class?
Intermediate students need the skill of keep on telling, telling their opinions and stories as possible they can. This What’s the truth is good exercise for them to do that. The most important part was they had good time to tell their opinion and story with having fun! They seemed enjoyed this game. They talked a lot, they laughed a lot!
