With any conversation exercise worksheet, give your students time to complete some of the suggested activities and then take up the answers and discuss as a class. Your high beginners can listen and hopefully understand some of the new vocabulary words in this lesson. They might even have the confidence to participate!

  2. I think everyone wants to ensure that they present their best work at all times. This is so whether someone is writing in English or another language. Of course, it easier when you are writing in the language that you grew up speaking.
