All this year, International House have been running events and competitions to celebrate their 60th anniversary – regular readers may remember the IHTOC60 (IH Teachers Online Conference) back in May and “The Tai Chi of Reading“.

During the Online Conference, IH launched a lesson plan competition – which I entered and was awarded second place!

My lesson is called “60 wishes in the wishing box” and it’s a fun way (if possibly a wee bit complex in places) of developing learners’ abilities to express wishes and predict consequences.  It’s aimed at Intermediate to Upper Intermediate level students (CEF B1 / B2) and is suitable for teen and adult classes.

To find out more about the lesson plan, as well as Dorka Brozik’s winning lesson on birthday vocabulary for VYLs and fellow runner-up, Adi Rajan’s pre-intermediate lesson on comparatives and superlatives, just follow the link:
