Teach Petr Cech English – a lesson using British Council Premier Skills

I’ve only just discovered the British Council Premier Skills site. It’s a great resource for some of the groups I teach. They’ve got a lesson planning competition going on at the moment, which inspired me to create a little something. My lesson uses this video from the British Council website:

You can find the lesson resources and a football vocabulary revision task here:

Students discuss the following questions

What’s the hardest thing about learning English?

When you speak English, what’s main cause of communication problems?

Do you think English would be easier to learn than your own language?

Explain to students that they will be watching a video of Premier League footballers discussing what they find hard about learning English. Briefly discuss what students know about the players, their nationalities, etc.
