*Music in the background*

– Greet the students and ask them to tell how they are feeling today. The students work in couples. They are asked to look in their phones for a picture about the last place they traveled to or visited. They have to explain and give more information to their classmate about the picture. After some time, volunteers can share their pictures to the class and explain a little about their visit (20min).

– With a different partner, students are given some cards with questions related to traveling. They are encouraged to discuss their ideas using the cards (10min).

– Then, the students are given a piece of paper with questions about their ideal vacation trip. They discuss ideas with a different partner and at the end, volunteers share their thoughts with the whole class (15min).

– Students are given a sheet with different hypothetic situations about traveling. They have to pick one and discuss with a partner about what they would do in the situation (10min).

– Space for general questions and closing (5min).

What worked well in this class? What did not work?

Overall, I would say the class went well today. We decided to have the class outside because the students suggested it, and it turned out to be a great idea. Everyone seemed excited and being outdoors made the atmosphere more relaxed and friendly. It was nice to see how being outside made it easier for everyone to talk and share their stories. Many students had cool travel stories to tell, and they were also eager to talk about their upcoming summer trips. Today’s class showed me how nice it can be to have class outside, where everyone feels comfortable sharing and learning together.

How could this class be improved/modified?

For this class, I would not modify or change anything.
