Setting the scene
The first activity of each lesson cycle is aimed at setting the scene. It is very important to dedicate sufficient time to a warming up activity. It enables you to estimate how much your students know about a particular topic, i.e. studying at a university and the amount and type
of English needed for this purpose.
Various suggestions, sample grids and information sheets:
- activity one: inventory of chosen studies;
- translating university terms and abbreviations (off-line)
- translating university terms: http://nufficglossary.nuffic.nl (on-line)
- activity two: genres - find the ''academic'' text
