Giving Advice for Beginners

A giving advice for beginners activity that will actually help your students practice and retain the necessary structures for giving advice in English!

Have you recently, or are you about to practice giving advice with your beginners? This activity is a great tool for students to practice their speaking and writing skills and also doubles as a useful reference for your students. The fact that there are pictures to help aid your students in the creative or generative process is also a plus! Once you see the activity, you’ll know what to do, but just in case, here are some suggestions.

Do the activity as a class: Share your screen or project the PDF for everyone to see. Choose one character for the class to advise and give a short time limit for students to write down their advice using as many of the structures in the middle as possible. If you are in a small group, especially one that knows each other pretty well, you could make it a game where each piece of advice is written on a small piece of paper and then put in the middle of the table. Draw one piece of advice at random and then ask the class whose advice they think it is. How well do they know each other?

I have been teaching English abroad since receiving my CELTA certificate in Poland in 2018. I enjoy tracking my individual students’ development but love having lessons with big groups! Now that I teach online, I am accompanied by my sidekicks Olaf, Mała, Pirate and Bandit on a regular basis.

It takes a team of 13 to create and produce this material. In order for that to continue, please think about purchasing your own subscription to ESL Expertz and encourage your colleagues to do the same. We appreciate your confidence and support!
