Then ask, “Have you been to Ha Noi or Hue or Phan Thiet ?”
Ask one of the top students to tell me where they’ve been and never been.
Finally, ask the students to tell me about the others in their group e.g.
“He’s been to Dalat but he’s never been to Ha Noi.”
Today we focus on six countries:
UK, Italy, New Zealand, Peru, India and Kenya
Which countries are these ?
Tell me as much about the country as you can (capital city, language, weather)
Now, a quick music quiz; where do these pieces of music come from ?
Students ask each – what music do they like best and why
Language to learn: fun // rhythmic // mysterious // melodic
Which country would they like to visit … and why ?
Finally, bring a globe to class and … in small groups, ask the students to find the six countries.
Endgame – have a student describe a flag, and the class have to guess which country.
