The Worst Vacation Ever!

a Talking Points lesson for English reading, speaking, vocabulary and writing

This is part of the Talking Points 3 lesson series for Intermediate to Advanced students.

Going on vacation should be a time to enjoy yourself, have fun and ultimately – to relax.

But what if things go wrong? What can you do then?

This is a lesson plan about holidays from hell, about the worst trips abroad in your life – the worst vacation ever.

The lesson starts with a funny story about a couple who arrive in a half-built hotel, then covers a few other exercises where students can talk about their own worst vacation experiences.

Your students will find this topic highly engaging and all the exercises will be great fun for them. It should definitely create much debate and talking time in your English or ESL class.

The lesson comes complete with:

  • Reading Exercise

  • Reading Comprehension Questions

  • Essential Vocabulary

  • Discussion Questions

  • A Vacation From Hell! – students talk about their own worst vacations

  • Offering Help Using ‘Will’ – how to use the word ‘will’ in context

  • Role Play

  • Writing Exercise

Start the class with the three opening questions and then do the reading.

Follow that with the reading comprehension questions.

Then you can go through all the vocabulary – or set it as homework for the students to do later.

Then there is a big list of questions that are designed to get your students talking.

After that, you can do all the other exercises in whatever order you wish.

It comes in easy to use PDF format, ideal for printing for your needs. Use it again and again for your English/ESL classes.
