Your advanced students will love discussing the controversial topic of language policy and the chaos its causing the people of East Timor in this highly engaging lesson. Enjoy!
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.
