Colours and Nationalities
A1 level


In this lesson students will be engaged in developing their receptive skills by viewing power point slides through the use of a projector. The student will observe colours and flags and need to pinpoint the name of the colour as well the country the flag is related to. They will then practice nationalities versus countries through a number of exercises to be completed in pairs. In doing so, they will also be repeating the phrases, from which there pronunciation will be checked by my monitoring
