Today we will begin by clarifying any doubts relating to the homework. Our main focus will be speaking and listening. To start, students will work in pairs to complete the speaking part 2 exam tasks on page 35 and 37. We will then complete the listening part 3 activity on page 36. 

As this is all about the benefits of travel and holidays, we will complete the following part 3 speaking task.

  • What types of tourism are popular in your country?
  • Are tourists usually respectful towards locals in your experience?
  • What are the greatest benefits of tourism for the area receiving the tourists?
  • Some people are strongly against mass tourism. Why is that?
  • How can tourism be harmful to the environment? 


You have recently conducted research into tourism in your area. Your local council has asked you to write a report providing information about tourism in your area. 

In your report you must:

► describe the type of tourism in your area and why it is popular

► explain the effects that tourism has on the area

► suggest ways of improving tourism in the future

Write between 220-260 words. 


Today we will begin a new topic in the book about money and finances. We will start with the quiz on page 42, which students will complete in pairs. We will then revise the conditionals by working through activities 1-4 on page 42-43, and learn about mixed conditionals.
