Context: Health, Social care, Early years

Health related role play and conversation

Submitted by Adele Harris on Tue, 2016-03-08 23:58

Literacy: Engage in Discussion

ESOL: ESOL Engage in discussion, ESOL Listen and respond, ESOL Reading: word focus (vocabulary, word recognition, phonics)

Context: Health, Social care, Early years, Independent living

Resource type: Listening and/or speaking activity, Worksheet or assignment

Level: E1, E2

I have been covering how to make an appointment with the GP and taking part in a role play with the GP with my ESOL group, so I have prepared these materials.

My courses are not accredited, so I don’t know how this fits into the ESOL SFL criteria and my classes are, inevitably, a mix of Pre-Entry and E1 learners. Hope it might be useful.

Editors note
Ideal for E1-2 ESOL and also some adult literacy learners.
