ABOUT THIS UNIT
Aim: Students get to know each other by asking questions and follow-up questions.
- Levels: elementary - proficient (A1-C2)
- Time: approx. 1 hour
This is a getting-to-know-you activity. The class is divided into two groups, A and B. Students note down short answers to questions about themselves on specified places on their handout, with Students A answering different questions from Students B. Questions come in three levels: for elementary to pre-intermediate students, for intermediate to upper-intermediate students and for advanced to proficient students, with a mix of Christian and secular questions.
In the next step, you as the teacher display your own answers to some questions. Students ask or hypothesise about them and learn to ask follow-up questions.
Then students work in pairs (one Student A + one Student B together), exchange their handouts and ask each other questions as well as follow-up questions. They report back to the whole class what the most interesting thing was that they've learnt about their partner.
THE 'ENGLISH FOR CHRISTIANS' SERIES
'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.
* EFL (English as a Foreign Language) = ESL (English as a Second Language) = ESOL (English for Speakers of Other Languages) = ELT (English Language Teaching) = TEFL (Teaching English as a Foreign Language) = TESL (Teaching English as a Second Language) = TESOL (Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages)
These terms tend to be used interchangeably.
