Decisions, decisions

Idioma: Anglès
Nivell: B1 / B2.1 (nivell 3 i 4)
Destresa: parla

Communicative Objectives:
This conversation will help you to learn:
– How to express you preferences
– How to decide where is better to go/ travel to

You and your best friend are planning a trip. However, it is more difficult than it seemed to be. He/she wants to spend the first three weeks of August in the USA, and she also wants to buy the tickets through a travel agency. However, you think it would be better to spend the first two weeks in Ireland buying the tickets through the internet because you know it would be cheaper.

Discuss when are you going abroad (dates), where are you going to go (place), how much are you going to spend (money) and where are you going to buy your tickets.


– Would like to…
– I prefer…rather than…
– Why don’t we…?
– It will be better to…rather than…

Excuses for a trip


Idioma: anglès
Nivell: A2 / B1 (nivell 2 i 3)
Destresa: parla

Communicative objectives:

The objective of this activity is that you learn how to:

– Use the correct future forms correctly.
– Use time expressions with the right prepositions.
– Ask questions.

You meet someone, a really annoying person who is interested in travelling next summer. He/She  is trying to convince you about going on holidays with him but you don’t want to go with him/her.

Take one minute to think about this “trip” you have already planned. One person tells the planned trip and the other asks questions about the trip and tries to fix all the problems and finding excuses to avoid traveling with him/her.

Future Forms: (e.g. I will, I’m going to visit, etc.)
Prepositions: (e.g. On Monday, at night, at 7 o’clock)
Wh- Questions: (e.g. What will you do, When are you going to, etc.)
