ESLunch Speaking



During Tuesday’s session, we’ll be looking at presenting in a loud, clear voice so that our listeners can understand our speech.

The topic you need to prepare for Tuesday is “My favourite book”. In this short presentation, you  need to remember to include:

1) the title of the book

2) the author

3) why do you like the book : reasons you enjoy the book – the story, characters, the style of writing, the genre (is it a thriller, romance, crime, adventure, fantasy, etc), any quotations, etc.

4) would you recommend this to your friends? What book would you like to read next? 

You need to speak for 1min 30secs at least. Practice, practice, practice in front of a friend or the mirror.

Good luck.

I'm Heading the EAL dept and Teaching ESL Students in the Mainstream Classroom (TESMC) trainer on Jeju island, South Korea. I'm enjoying the IT revolution in the classroom and discovering new IT tools to support my lessons. Reading is at the top of my list: “The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you'll go" Dr Seuss, I can read with my eyes shut. Learning Korean is my biggest challenge at this point in time. However, a word a day is my target.

      I, too, enjoyed that book. Mark Hadden did a good job of keeping the reader’s interest and the main character, was indeed, lovable. I’m glad you are reading. Do try to read as many English books as possible. See you on Thursday.
