MEC Wedding!

27-Apr-2011

The final preparations for the big royal wedding are coming to an end. We are just 48 hours away from street parties, pubs or sitting in the living room in front of the telly in order to join a massive celebration of the most beloved couple in the British royal family!

You can join the celebration in your classroom by having a small wedding party. Ask students to bring in some snacks. You may want to use a lesson plan from onestopenglish.com about a wedding party.  It is a speaking  activity where students practise making small talk at a wedding, share secrets and do some gossiping. You can find the worksheet/teacher’s notes by following this link http://www.onestopenglish.com/skills/speaking/lesson-plans/role-play/the-wedding-party/550648.article

You may also want to try out the Celebrity wedding planner lesson plan where students are celebrity wedding planners and are going to create a plan for their celebrity wedding. To download the lesson plan follow the link: http://www.onestopenglish.com/community/lesson-share/winning-lessons/lesson-share-celebrity-wedding-planner/551141.article


Additionally, you can use some of the wedding themed resources that I came across on the English Campus:

A lifetime together: In this two-part video activity, a woman talks about her relationship with her husband. For the first task, you decide whether statements are true or false. For the second task, you match sentence halves.

A society wedding: This vocabulary activity practises collective nouns. You choose the correct nouns to complete a newspaper report of a wedding.

A wedding day to remember: This language exercise practises modals of ability: can, could, be able to. You choose the correct word to complete a text about a wedding day.

Amy’s wedding: In this listening activity you listen to Amy telephoning four friends to tell them about her wedding. Then you will answer questions about the call.

Cupid Games: Identify the potential couples and help them go on a date by matching the invitations with the correct replies. You have to be quick enough to please Cupid.

Getting married: This language exercise practises reflexive pronouns and each other. You choose the correct words to complete a text about marriage and divorce.

Ideal partners: In this two-part video activity, a man talks about his grandparents. For the first task, you select the adjectives you hear. For the second task, you match descriptions with adjectives.

My wedding day: In this two-part video activity, a woman talks about her wedding day. For the first task, you choose words to complete a text about the video. For the second, you choose the correct words to complete sentences.

Zmei’s Lies: Zmei, the monster with three heads, has locked the frog prince’s fiancée in a castle. Follow the directions and hints given by Mary the Fairy. Be careful! Zmei will do anything to make you fail and the prince won’t marry his fiancée.

…and they lived happily ever after.
