#### Resource type: Discussion points, Ice breaker, Listening and/or speaking activity, Writing prompts

This is a combination of speaking & listening, note taking & writing, that I have used successfully as an ice breaker with new groups.

The activity is based on recent changes to the minimun wage (Nov 2011). Students have to read the information given on the shop employees’ ages and new minimun pay to work out how much the staff are paid for their work.

## Compound word card match

Submitted by Gemma Holtam on Tue, 2012-03-13 22:32

#### Level: E2, E3

This is a resource for teaching compound words to mixed ability groups. There are five different word match activities and two help sheets.

I use the first two activities, sports and food, with E1-2 learners. Depending on their ability you can either give the learners both topics at once or give them one at a time to make the activity easier. For very low level students I’d give the learners one topic at a time and a help sheet.
