Notre Dame, Marseille, Montpellier. If you’re looking to add a bit of color and culture to your student’s reading activities, this new ESL Lesson Plan on holiday in France offers just the ticket.

Suitable for intermediate learners, the lesson plan is built around the theme of holidays. It offers students the chance to practice their reading skills while learning about intensifiers, idioms and informal language.

What Does the Lesson Offer?

A key component of advanced language learning is the ability to comprehend situations. Students then need to accurately and appropriately describe situations. This lesson supports intermediate learners reading a letter from one friend to another describing a trip to southern France.

The lesson includes a comprehension question covering strong adjectives with intensifier combinations, such as “utterly disappointed,” and idioms, such as “under the weather.”

Students need to understand the difference between formal and informal language. The lesson uses the letter to address comprehension of informal language.
