Are you ready?

As the heading suggests, it is the right time to be ready to start practising and having fun at the same time! 

Are you ready?

Take your time and enjoy doing these TASKS:

Task 1

Well, this time we want you to have a look at teacher Alba's video, Description of my house, a homemade video to start designing your own video. So, after watching it, prepare your notes to record yours. You can do it alone or in pairs. If you want to be inspired by another video, watch Describing your house.

Video

Use the worksheet Description of my house to help you and upload it into your personal eportfolio (Dossier: Speaking Folder).

Task 2

Describing Homes. First, let’s divide the class into pairs (A and B) and follow the instructions in the following activity where students have to read out a description of their houses. Then, they have to listen and try to answer some questions. It is important that students must not show their partner their worksheet.

Use the worksheet Describing homes and upload it with your answers into your personal eportfolio (Dossier: Speaking Folder).

Task 3

Whose house is it? Firstly, watch the following presentation. Secondly, on the first slide, click on the speech bubble Speech bubble to read the guidelines and describe a house. Finally, choose one of the houses to describe it, tap the speech bubble to read information about the house, and talk about it to the whole class (or in pairs), so they can guess whose house it is.

Help: you can take your time to write a draft with your ideas about the house or flat. Don't forget to use linking words (and, but, because, so).

Use the worksheet Whose house is it? and upload it together with a description of one of the houses into your personal eportfolio (Dossier: Speaking Folder). 

Task 4

Do you need to rent a house? Watch the video How to rent an apartment to know how to do it. Then, have a look at some useful language in the activity below to prepare an interview with one of your classmates. Once you are ready, record the interview, a classmate can help you.

My apartment
Mohamed Hassan. My apartment (Dominio público)

Use the worksheet How to rent an apartment and upload it with the interview and your recording into your personal eportfolio (Dossier: Speaking Folder).
