LEVEL B2
FOCUS Discussion: agree/disagree
TIME  60 min (incl. 12 min video)

The lesson plan is based on a TEDTalk titled How to get back to work after a career break by Carol Fishman Cohen and concerns career breaks.

The worksheet mainly focuses on speaking. A warm-up exercise is a short general discussion on the idea of career breaks. Next, students move to two tasks on vocabulary from the speech. The first one is a definition-matching  exercise. In the second task, students have to complete the gaps in questions and answer them in pairs. Then, students need to watch the video and find answers to 7 comprehension questions. The last task is again a short discussion. In pairs, students have to decide whether they agree or disagree with the statements in the task.

The lesson should take around 60 minutes (including the 12-minute talk) and it is prepared for B2 students, but stronger B1+ students will also manage.
