This is a multi-level ESL lesson plan for adults or teens. It gives students a clear formula for how to compliment others in English and guides them through practice. The file includes the lesson plan, a worksheet, sentences frames, and verb cards.
I've used this lesson in a multi-level ESL class before Valentine's Day to teach students to give sincere compliments as part of the holiday. I've also taught it during a unit on parent-teacher communication since complimenting each other is part of building a good relationship. This lesson could also be used as part of a job skills unit.
