Working and jobs #1

How did you pick this theme or topic?

How did you present the material? (Handouts, group work, general discussion, student presentations, etc.)

Interviews in pairs
General questions

How did students react?

They reacted very well. They had a lot of things to say and we didn’t have time to finish the debate.

Did they engage with each other and you?

Yes they engaged a lot with each other since they had to interview each other, and share experiences.

What materials or media did you use? (articles, satellite tv, digital projector, etc.)
