ESL Air Travel Role-Play Board Game - Reading, Listening and Speaking Activity - Intermediate (B1) - 35 minutes

In this air travel information board game, students role-play asking for air travel information and practice booking airline tickets with a ticket agent. The game board shows air travel information about return flights from London to Perth. There are three possible flights and each flight shows the departure and arrival time, stopover, flight time, cost and baggage allowance. In pairs, students take it in turns to roll the dice and move their counter along the board. Each time a pair lands on a square, they role-play the situation. One student takes on the role of a customer and the other is a ticket agent. If the square contains an information symbol, the customer asks for travel information about one of the flights. If not, the customer's task is to book a certain type of flight. The ticket agent refers to the air travel information in the centre of the board during each role-play. The first pair of students to reach the finish wins. Afterwards, pairs role-play some of the situations in front of the class.

In-flight Safety Procedures

ESL Air Travel Lesson - Writing, Listening and Speaking Activity - Intermediate (B1) - 60 minutes

In this free air travel lesson, students practice air travel vocabulary and present in-flight safety procedures for an airline. Students begin by brainstorming ideas on the vocabulary and phrases necessary to explain in-flight safety procedures. The students then watch a YouTube video about in-flight safety instructions and compare their vocabulary and phrases with the language used in the video. After that, in groups, students create a set of in-flight safety instructions for an airline. The groups begin by choosing a name for their airline. The students then prepare and write in-flight safety instructions. When the students have finished writing, they conduct rehearsals for their presentations. Rearrange the classroom so that it resembles the seating plan of an aircraft with an aisle down the middle. Each group then demonstrates their airline safety procedures to the class. The other students act as passengers. The passengers listen and judge which presentation they like the most. This last part of the lesson is a lot of fun as the students are acting like they are sitting on a plane and listening to the cabin crew.
