Writing an article to give advice.
Upper intermediate B2 level


In this lesson, students will learn how to write an article giving advice through a guided discovery in the context of an article giving advice on how to remove a stuck ring. The lesson begins by asking what type of advice we give, followed by a sample analysis. After this meaning, form and appropriacy are covered. Finally, the students practice using the TL in a writing of their own and give each other peer feedback.
