Names. We all have one, but where did it come from and how did we get it? Your beginning students will have fun discussing their names, naming traditions, and using the links to research name origins in this highly engaging lesson. Enjoy!
This lesson is appropriate for adult English learners at the beginner level, but can be adapted for other levels. It has a discussion phase, vocabulary study phase, a reading/listening passage followed by 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.
