What's in a name? Ice-breaker for Functional English
Submitted by Stephanie Gilford on 8 January 2022.
Why are names important? What can we learn from them?
Slides for L1 and L2 English learners to find out more about the importance of names while building their English skills. (For example: vocabulary, sentence structure, punctuation, research, discussion and a mini writing task).
Ideal as an ice breaker at the start of the year - although the wealth of material, discussion points and links mean it could easily fill an entire lesson! Topics covered include:
- meanings of names and their origins
- naming traditions in Britain and in other cultures
- popular names and nicknames
- importance of identity
- problems caused by misidentification and incorrect pronunciation
