Write an easy self introduction, it should be between three and five minutes. This time includes repetition of key words and important points.

Start your first lesson by telling the students that you will be doing a self introduction. Tell them that when you are done, they will put their hands up and announce what they understood. Ask the HRT to translate your instructions.

A lesson devised to build upon the suggesting finished activity for Eigo Noto 2‘s “I want to go to Italy.” topic, in which students learn to express desires, and reasons for having them.

Rather than choosing an existing country to visit—as suggested by the textbook—students work in groups to imagine a new country, name it, design its flag and map, and reasons for visiting their country in the process.
