Our lesson format includes imagery, table topic, hypothetical table topic, guided conversation questions, two conversational activities, and a homework project.
Some ESL conversation questions in the lesson include:
Which of the travel destinations on the previous page sound the best to you? Why so? Are there any beach-side activities you enjoy? What kind of weather do you enjoy? Is there anything you like to do during sunny weather? Where do you like to kick back and relax? Are you any good at swimming? If so, where do you like to swim? Have you ever tried to float? What do you think of sunning? Have you ever tried it? Have you ever been scuba diving or snorkeling? What was the experience like?
fun in the sun: to enjoy oneself in sunny weather
I've been stuck indoors all day. Let's head to the beach. I'm ready for some fun in the sun.
dive spot: specific places that recreational scuba divers go to enjoy the underwater environment
If you are looking for some excellent scuba diving, head to the dive spots on the beaches of Cote d'Azur, France.
salinity: the concentration of dissolved salt in a given volume of water
Head to the beaches in Israel to kick back and relax as you are able to float in the famous high-salinity beaches.
floating village: a group of floating houses smaller than a town which is residential and self-sufficient
Head to the beaches in Vietnam and stop by the floating villages. Though they were originally built for fishermen returning to sell their fresh catches from the previous evening, each village has become self-sufficient and even has police stations.
sunning: sun tanning; getting some rays
Head to the beaches in Miami, Florida, if you want to catch some strong rays and do some sunning.
