London to Paris

ESL EFL Writing and Speaking Activity - Elementary - 25 Minutes

This useful activity helps to teach students how to ask and answer questions about travel information. The class is divided into two groups (A and B) and each student is given a corresponding worksheet. The students work together with the people in their group and write down the questions they need to ask to find out missing travel information on their worksheet. After the travel information questions have been checked, the students pair up with someone from the other group. The students then take it in turns to ask and answer the questions, noting down the answers on their worksheet. When they have finished, the students compare their answers with their partner. Finally, some pairs present their travel information questions and answers to the class.

Modes of Transport

ESL EFL Writing, Listening and Speaking Activity - Elementary - 25 Minutes

In this crossword activity, students complete half a crossword by describing and guessing different modes of transport. The class is divided into two groups (A and B) and each student is given a corresponding worksheet. Both groups have the same crossword, but Group A has the words down and Group B has the words across. Working together, the students invent and write down clues for the modes of transport on their crossword. When the students have finished writing, they pair up with someone from the other group. The students take it in turns to ask their partner for a clue to one of their missing words, e.g. What’s 3 across? Their partner reads out the clue for that word and the other student tries to guess the mode of transport. If the student guesses the word successfully, they write it on their crossword. If not, their partner continues to give more clues until the student is able to guess the word. When the students have finished, they compare their answers.

Travel Mix Up

ESL EFL Reading, Writing and Speaking Activity - Elementary - 40 Minutes

In this memorable teaching activity, students practice holiday and travel conversations. The class is split into pairs and each pair is given a set of shuffled cards. The cards create three travel conversations. The students put the three heading cards out on the table (at the airport, at the hotel, asking for directions). The students then put the three travel conversations into the correct order. Each conversation has eight cards consisting of an eight-line conversation. When everyone has finished, pairs of students read out the conversations to the class. Then, each pair writes and presents a new dialogue from one of the travel scenarios.

In-flight Safety Procedures

ESL EFL Lesson - Intermediate to Upper-intermediate - 1 Hour

This lesson plan is a great way to get students to use vocabulary connected with air travel. Students begin by brainstorming ideas on the vocabulary necessary to explain in-flight safety procedures. The class then watches a YouTube video about in-flight safety instructions. The students compare their ideas with the information given in the video. The class is then divided into small groups. Their task is to create an airline and then write and present a set of airline safety instructions. The classroom is rearranged so that it imitates the seating plan and aisle of an aircraft. Each group then demonstrates their airline safety procedures to the class. The other students act as passengers. They 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.
