When problems arise for a company, it usually comes down to who can put a positive spin or effectively assign blame to another party which determines the root cause of a problem. Your students will enjoy discussing public affairs,
government restrictions when it comes to purchasing police cars, and what the acronym F.O.R.D. sometimes means in this highly engaging lesson!
This lesson is appropriate for adult English language learners at the advanced level but is adaptable for upper-intermediate learners. It has a discussion phase, vocabulary study phase, a reading/listening passage followed by reading/listening comprehension questions, and finally some additional conversation and role-play activities. I have used it in individual and large group settings and found it to be a very flexible and useful resource.
