Conversation Class Lesson Summary

Language Resident Name: JOSE GOMEZ

Day and Date: 11/09/2017

(Class in the FLRC)

 

Language and Level (intermediate or advanced class): Advanced

 

Class theme/topics discussed: Traveling

Goal of the class: Students learn travel related vocabulary, and tools to travel in Spanish

 

How did you structure the class?

 Head’s up: Movie night “Vivir es Fácil con los Ojos Cerrados”

 Warm-up (5’): Students watch a travelling video on Youtube to set the tone of the class

 

Activity 1(10’): Small discussion ¿Why do you travel? Students are divided into groups and each of them will argue about the following reasons to travel. Then they share with the rest of the class.

  • To learn languages
  • To learn about other people’s culture
  • To escape from reality
  • To show off on Instagram

 

Activity 2 (15’): As a group, we brainstorm different webpages and apps that help us travelling. I will provide some that I know in case they don’t. We will also learn quickly how to use them. Skyscanner, Couchsurfing, Civitatis, Workaway.

 

Activity 3 (20’): (in pairs) Students get a worksheet with a template of a trip planner.

They are given a budget of 1000$.

They will have to arrange their own trip, using the real tools they have seen before. They will have to pick a place, look for accommodation, transport, restaurants. Since this class takes place at the FLRC, they all have the resources to make the reservations and to know exactly the prizes of the things they will need.

 

Activity 4 (10’): Students will present the trip they have organized to the rest of the class. They will have the screen to do it, and also pictures of the places they want to see.

 

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

6 travelling worksheets templates https://www.eleinternacional.com/

Computers at the FLRC

Youtube

Access to Internet

 

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

I think students found this class very original. They really enjoyed having to create their own real trip and some of them took it very seriously since many were seniors and were planning trips after graduating.

 

How could this class be improved/ modified?

Something that I could have done better here is the time management. The trip planning process takes a while and some students would have liked to arrange more elaborated trips.

RU F14 INT Russian cities

Conversation Class Lesson Summary

Language and Section: Russian Intermediate 11 

Date: November 24, 2014

Class theme/topics discussed:

Big cities and famous places in Russia, traveling

Goal of the class:

Talk about plans for Thanksgiving, revise verbs of motion, learn about four interesting cities in Russia and other famous places (ходить/идти/ехать/ездить/лететь/летать, доехать/прилететь) 

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

Activity 1 Warm-up – Thanksgiving plans – 15 minutes

General discussion – who is going where for Thanksgiving? We revise verbs of motion quickly.

Activity 2 Video “Iz okna” – 10 minutes – HANDOUT 1

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uW4UqmQQbRQ

NB! A funny video about a band touring Russian cities. First, we revise slang/curse words without looking at the lyrics, then listen to the song and try to pick out 8 names of Russian citite – do you know which part of Russia they’re in? We then we look at the lyrics and I explain a few constructions.

Activity 3 10 miracles of Russia – 10 minutes

http://10russia.ru

We look at the website of the national contest/project “10 miracles of Russia” and talk about where these places are, has anyone been? Does it sound interesting etc. 

Activity 4 Four cities – 25 minutes

Using Handout 2, students research one of the four cities in pairs – Ekaterinburg, Vladivostok, Kazan, and Kostroma (geographically very wide in scope). They spent about 15 minutes doing research (location, population, sightseeing, claim to fame, how to get there) and discussing their destinations, then each group gets 2 minutes to “advertise” their city and we all decide whether we want to go.

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

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

The class went well and the students definitely enjoyed working together and learning about new cities in Russia. I think it would be a good idea to develop on this topic – Russia is so huge but even major cities are not really well-known to Americans. I am also really pleased with how they use verbs of motion – they all seem to be getting really comfortable!

How could this class be improved/ modified?

HANDOUT 1

NOIZE MC – ИЗ ОКНА

В рот я ебал ваш первый канал

И второй канал тоже в рот ебал,

Третий канал тоже тот ешё кал

Да и четвёртый если честно

Смотреть бы не стал.

По мне так что пятый канал

что шестой, такой же отстой,

Как седьмой и восьмой,

Девятый десятый бля пятидесятый.

Куда не включи кругом одни дегенираты.

Сколько кнопками не щёлкой на пульте

Нормально не чего не показывают ни где

Я так устал от всего это говна

И вот именно поэтому

 

Из окна гостиничного номера своего

Я телевизор выкинул на авто

Авторитета местного, ну и что?

Я рок-звезда, идите на! (2 раза)

Бум! Прогнулась крыша «геленвагена»

Ха-ха-ха! Смотрите все, какая вмятина! (2 раза)

 

Привет Самара! Ой, то есть Саратов! То есть Волгоград!

Я крайне рад сегодня в вашем классном городе играть

Я где только не был, но самые красивые девушки в мире,

Честное слово, зуб даю, у вас в Сибири!

 

У вас тут так красиво – море, мосты разводные

В общем, Тверь теперь мой самый любимый город России!

То есть Казань! То есть, конечно, Пенза, я хотел сказать!

Калуга! Где ваши руки? Не слышу ваши голоса!

 

Вы бы знали, что сейчас творится за кулисами –

Там к нам приехали дяди какие-то лысые

Говорят – не по понятиям вниз кидать телевизоры

Если правильный пацан тачку припарковал поблизости.

 

Как широка и необъятна наша страна,

До чего плотно и густо населена она

Занудами типа братвы этого быдло на

Нет, ну, подумаешь… Да, ну и что, что…

 

Из окна гостиничного номера своего

Я телевизор выкинул на авто

Авторитета местного, ну и что?

Я рок-звезда, идите на! (2 раза)

 

Бум! Прогнулась крыша «геленвагена»

Ха-ха-ха! Смотрите все, какая вмятина! (2 раза)

 

А завтра снова в новый город нас поезд утащит

Продюсер нам сказал, что скоро отпуск, но он обманщик

Так что DJ, басист, клавишник и барабанщик

Ещё не раз посмотрят вниз на летящий ящик

 

Опа! На асфальте мелкие осколки кинескопа

Хозяин тачки смотрит наверх со злобой

Смотрите, вот он – уже на ресепшен потопал

Давайте выпьем за меткость, куда же делся штопор?

 

Как широка и необъятна наша страна

Каждый день – новые лица, новые имена

Безумный гастрольный график сводит меня с ума

И вот именно поэтому…

 

Из окна гостиничного номера своего

Я телевизор выкинул на авто

Авторитета местного, ну и что?

Я рок-звезда, идите на! (2 раза)

 

Бум! Прогнулась крыша «геленвагена»

Ха-ха-ха! Смотрите все, какая вмятина! (2 раза)

S 11 CN Int/Adv 39 Spring Festival traffic rush & News Report shooting

Class theme/topics discussed:

Spring Festival traffic rush: News report and journalist interview with homeless people who cannot go back home in spring festival

How did you pick this theme or topic?

It is the spring festival time in China. Every year the traffic rash at that time is a big issue for Chinese people. Therefore, it is a good topic for students to discuss and learn some Chinese cultures.

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

Group work and general discussion
How did students react?
good

Did they engage with each other and you?

yes

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

Tv, youku video
Please attach a copy.

Would you recommend this activity for a future class?

RU F10 INT/ADV Driving + Personality Quiz

Class theme/topics discussed:
Driving
+Personality Quiz

How did you pick this theme or topic?
It’s an efficient activity with lots of vocabulary in the task.

Handouts, general discussion, presentation on the screen.

How did students react?
They liked the activity.

Yes.
Why or why not?
It is highly motivating and it encourages active language use, combining reading, comprehension, and conversational skills.
But the activity is more suitable for a one-student class – since the quiz is taken online. Though it could be modified for larger classes – up to four students, with each student reading out and answering one question – and others could compare their answers…
