Intermediate ESL Through Popular Media

Intermediate ESL Through Popular Media


Class Description


Kids love video games, TV, and movies. This class allows them to work on their English vocabulary and grammar skills by relating them to familiar media topics. I allow flexibility for the students to help decide what they would like to learn and which topics they most want to use as tools for covering these lessons.


Class Requirements


This class is intended for students learning English as a second language who have some of the basics down, such as simple present and simple past, enough vocabulary to hold a basic English conversation, and enough writing skill to be legible.


Class Supplies


Students should come prepared with a dedicated notebook, a sharp pencil, and an eraser to easily make changes to their writing choices.
