Your beginning level students will enjoy using their listening and speaking skills to discuss the universal topic of sports. Enjoy!
This lesson is appropriate for adult English learners at the beginning level, but can be adapted for other levels. It has a discussion phase, vocabulary study phase, a reading/listening passage followed by reading/listening comprehension questions, some additional activities and an answer key. I have used it in individual and large group settings, and found it to be a very flexible and useful resource.
