Native Speaker – Adrienne’s Options Class

Teacher Adrienne is famed for making all her lessons fun and interesting, and her feedback comments very often include both these words, along with ‘she really cares’ and ‘she has helped me so much’. Her students love her enthusiasm and passion for teaching and we love finding out what they’ve been up to in class…

For one of Adrienne’s recent Native Speaker options classes, which teaches phrasal verbs, idioms and slang, the focus was on ‘getting directions’.

In pairs the students had to take it in turns to give each other directions. To make it more fun and challenging the person getting directions was blindfolded and an obstacle course was created!! Using equipment they found downstairs, including a trolley, exercise ball and hula hoop, the students got creative directing each other around the garden.

The hour lesson was filled with lots of laughter, making it a memorable way for the students to remember the new vocabulary and phrases they had learnt!
