Get your students to use irregular verbs and vacation activities

This one we recommend doing as a class while students work individually. Each map has different irregular verbs and vacation activities which your students will use to talk about Hannah and Paul’s vacation. Here are a couple ideas of how to use this activity:

  • Simply tell the class what Hannah and Paul did on their vacation. For your beginner students, they need no more no less! Set a time limit, let your students work individually or in pairs, and then have everyone present to the class. You can even vote on the best vacation.
  • For more advanced (or creative) students, give them a target for their story. Let’s say something happened after the vacation. For example, Hannah and Paul got married, got engaged, broke up, hated each other, started a relationship, found out they were cousins, whatever it is, your students will tell the story of what happened on that vacation to get us to this pivotal moment.
  • To go a bit further, have students or groups exchange their vacation stories and then add to the other group’s story.

*Please note that the map for “Las Wegas” should be used at your discretion and recommended for adults only.

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!
