LP 2 "Time and Money"
Elementary A1/A2 level


In this lesson, students learn how to ask and answer simple questions about prices and currency, while also furthering their ability to tell time. The lesson starts off with a discussion to introduce some vocabulary and phrases, followed by an exercise to teach the Ss how to read prices. Afterwards, the Ss will use their knowledge of telling time from the previous lesson in combination with telling time to complete some exercises, that culminates in a dialogue that requires both skills.
