Class theme/topics discussed: Looking for a housemate

 Goal of the class: Give students some useful vocabulary about housing

 Structure of the class (unless you attach your lesson plan below):

**They were 5 so 3 were looking for house and 2 were looking for a new housemate.

What technology, media or props did you use? (satellite tv, internet resources, playmobiles, etc.)


What worked well in this class? What did not work?

They enjoyed both the interview and the discussion after it. However they didn’t understand at first what they were supposed to do with the patterns for the interviews that I gave them. I told them they could be themselves during the roleplay or make up a character. Some of them started writing down the answers instead of just thinking about their character and what they were going to say.

Also it would have been better if they had been even numbers since this way they could’ve had interviews with everyone two-to-two.

How could this class be improved/ modified?

Instead of giving them some patterns to answer when they were looking for a housemate I could have told them to make them up and have real interviews with their classmates
