They make a mess in both town and country. Have you ever been to a beautiful place and seen rubbish everywhere? On the other hand, are they the biggest problem the environment faces? They don’t pollute the air or damage our lungs like car exhaust fumes, we can re-use them and recycle them. Whatever the truth, many places restrict their sale. This lesson is a role play debate. Should we ban their sale or not? Practice language for agreeing and disagreeing, and reaching consensus. For B1 level upwards.
They say you can tell next season’s hottest trend by looking at the colour of the rivers in Mexico and China. That’s because global fashion brands like Calvin Klein and GAP are using hazardous chemicals and dyes to make our clothes.
In this lesson students watch a fantastic mock anime film trailer in which our superheros expose the dark side of fashion. They also see how a ‘people-powered’ campaign set up by Greenpeace is changing the fashion industry for the better.
Students also learn vocabulary for clothes and use the present continuous to describe what someone is wearing.
A lesson aimed at teenage learners. B1/intermediate level upwards.
