Common health and everyday problems, Should for advice
A1/A2 (Elementary) level


In this lesson, Ss will learn some health problems and they will be invited to complete a conversation about a man's problem whose photo is on the board. After eliciting Should, they will be invited to give advice about the problems on the walls in groups. This stage will be followed by another speaking activity about everyday problems and solutions. Ss will work in groups and take turn for stating problems which are written on papers. If time allows, Ss will watch a video about a disorganized person and discuss their solutions in groups. The session will end up in an O/C FB.
