The perfect house/apartment

(interactive verbal presentation and comprehension, writing presentation)

When learning words for furniture and rooms of the house, this can be an useful and entertaining exercise which students have usually enjoyed in the past. It also has the benefit of being very communicative.

Basic setup: Place the students in small groups (2-4 people, depending on class size and dynamic) and present basic home/furniture vocabulary.

In groups, have the students plan out their ideal home. They can draw blueprints if they wish but they should discuss their future dream home in complete sentences . After discussing it, they should write down their plans and present them to the class. Students should be encouraged to be creative and as detailed as possible.
