B1 Writing

B1 Article

This is a powerpoint based lesson on how to write an article with an explanation and  exercises on how to express wishes.  I’ve used a question from Cosmic B1 (Pearson).

Step 1: Ask your students what they would do if they could take a year off school.


Step 2: Go over the explanation of how to express wishes and tell your students to do the  exercises.

Step 3:  Ask your students to read the question and the sample article. Present the powerpoint –  encouraging the students to find and highlight the content points, connecting words, etc. on their worksheets.  Note: each slide gives the students a chance to point these out themselves before revealing the answers. Don’t forget to remind them of the structures when expressing wishes.
