This post is really an update of some resources I posted a while ago. I have a lower ability Year 11 group and we are on the topic of holidays. In getting them to write about what they did on holiday I am encouraging them to give full details e.g. if they say they went to Oxford Street, they have to explain what this is as it may not be obvious to someone who is not from London. In my examples I have focused on Bilbao as it is a place I am very fond of + I think that it helps students to hear about different places.
I have included two PowerPoints as I thought it might be worth sharing the materials which help to build up to this point. I have had to delete quite a few things due to copyright, so the resources are slightly disjointed in places. It’s not amazing stuff, but it may be useful to someone.
