Learning and using discussion phrases, giving opinions, having discussions
Two units (pdf format) in a zip file: 'Discuss! - Intermediate' & 'Discuss! - Upper-intermediate'



Students learn to use further discussion phrases, which they can employ to discuss music and evangelism.

- Level: upper-intermediate (B2)
- Time: approx. 2 hours


Students put a wide range of discussion phrases into categories. They read a discussion about Christian music and evangelism. Then they fill the gaps in this discussion with suitable discussion phrases. In a ladder discussion (a discussion format with changing partners) they argue for their opinions about various music and evangelism topics.

This unit can also be covered by intermediate students who already have considerable discussion practice (e.g. as a follow-up to 'Discuss! - Intermediate').



Students learn to use typical discussion phrases and express their opinion on various topics.

- Level: intermediate (B1)
- Time: approx. 2 hours


Students put discussion phrases into categories. They use phrases of agreement and disagreement to respond to controversial statements. In skeleton dialogues (short structured conversations) they argue for their opinions.

For free speaking practice, they play a board game in which they argue for or against further controversial statements.


'English for Christians' prepares language learners to interact successfully in a Christian English-speaking environment. This series of supplementary materials can be used alongside any course book. It covers a range of Christian topics, skills and language levels and is suitable for Christians of all denominations.

All materials are photocopiable and ready for classroom use. They include:

- the students' edition (handouts in original A4 page size)
- interleaved teacher's notes (scaled-down student pages and teaching instructions side by side on a landscape-orientation A4 page)

The materials are aimed at students who:

- work or plan to work abroad as a missionary or in a Christian environment
- study theology in English or study English while attending a theology college
- attend international church services, Bible studies, Christian conferences, work camps or holidays
- prefer Christian to secular teaching content

Whereas most Christian EFL* materials seek to convert learners to the Christian faith, this series is designed for students who are already Christians, and does not follow an evangelistic approach.

With 12 years’ experience as a language teacher, I’m now a part-time writer of English teaching materials. I hold the Cambridge CELTA (Certificate in English Language Teaching to Adults) and have completed International Training Network’s course “The Christian teacher”. With my diverse church background, I’ve experienced a range of different denominations, countries and nationalities. This has shown me that there are specific skills and vocabulary items that Christians need in an English-speaking context. So I’ve set out to create varied, communicative learning materials, which I hope you will find both useful and enjoyable!
