We've all been there... it's late at night and an infomercial comes on with some pill, potion, or piece of equipment that will help us get fit quick. Just like that infomercial drew you in, this lesson will have your students hooked. Your students will love discussing health fads in this highly engaging lesson. Enjoy!
This lesson is appropriate for adult English language learners at the advanced level. It has a discussion phase (to activate schema and build background knowledge), vocabulary study phase, a reading/listening passage followed by reading/listening comprehension questions, and finally some additional role-play activities and a writing exercise. I have used it in individual and large group settings, and found it to be a very flexible and useful resource.
