Newzy: Is Housework Real Work?

A complete lesson plan based on an authentic text for your students to talk about their favorite chores and how much they value their time.

How much of the housework do you shoulder and do you think you deserve compensation? Maybe it depends on how much of it you share with your partner. In this NEWZY lesson, your students will learn about a Chinese couple who did not see eye to eye. Use this as an easy and fun discussion class which is bound to start a bit of debate.

It is based on authentic material from the BBC, contains a vocabulary exercise comparing take, make and do, and finishes with a fun activity where your students will associate financial compensation with some of their (least) favorite chores.

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!
