2. Running dictation. Work in 2 groups.


Here’s a DIY guide to planning a travelling with friends.

Your task is to read the article and fill in the missing words. This task is unusual and I need two groups and two volunteers to help you. The volunteers have to go to the end of this room, take only one part of the text but in logical order and read it to your group, then you can go to take the second part of the article. Students listen attentively to you and fill in the missing words. The first group who fills the article correctly will be the winner. Let’s start!

A ___

Here’s a DIY guide to planning a travelling with friends! So, you’re going away with friends, with nobody around to give you grief? Before you even leave home, be honest with each other about what you want from this holiday. Don’t wait until you arrive to discover you’re the only person who wants to spend lots of chilled nights in watching BBC World. Be honest about what you want before you leave and discuss any problems ASAP.

B ___

This might be the first time you’ve had lots of money to spend on yourself. But don’t forget that this money is supposed to last your whole holiday. Spending it all before you get as far as the airport departure gate isn’t a good idea. Be sensible: work out how much you’re going to spend each day and stick to it.

C ___

It’s worth staying switched on about your diet. You can certainly have a break from your everyday dishes, but just remember that your body needs vitamins and minerals, not just chips and burgers! It’s natural to want to relax on holiday, especially when you’re parent-free, but that doesn’t mean you should live like a pig. Personal hygiene still matters.

D ___

You’re on holiday from the stresses of the everyday world, but you’re also away your home and family. So try to look out for each other. And don’t be selfish. A mate who won’t make the effort should be left at home. Respect people’s space and their needs. Likes and dislikes.

E ___

You may feel differently when you’re hundreds of miles away, so be sure to keep in touch by phone, SMS or email. Don’t be afraid to pick up the phone or send a message home at any time if you’re feeling wobbly.

  • What are the missing words? (give you grief, chilled, switched on, look out for, mate, wobbly)
  • Match these colloquial words with the definitions below. (Slide 14)

Relaxing, friend, keep somebody safe (take care of somebody), not sure (worried), cause problems or worries, aware of (thinking about).

(1. Chilled, 2. Mate, 3. Look out for, 4. Wobbly, 5. Give your grief, 6. Switched on)


  • Match the summary sentences (1-5) with paragraphs A-E. (Slide 15)
  1. You should think about your health. C
  2. You should contact home if you feel worried. E
  3. You should all agree on the type of holiday you want. A
  4. You should take care of each other while you’re away. D
  5. You should be careful with your money. B

V. Production

Writing. Work in groups of 4 (3 groups).

  • Plan your ideal travelling. Make notes about:
  • The people you want to travel with
  • The places you want to visit and why
  • Your accommodation and methods of transport
  • The activities you plan to do
  • Present your ideas to the class.

(Slide 16)


VI. Summarizing.

  • What ways of travelling do you know?
  • What are the pros and cons of them?
  • What transport locations can you name?
  • Do you prefer going away with friends or with your family?

(Slide 17) Remember!!!

“The world is a book and those who do not travel read only one page”

St. Augustine
