Famous People in English Class

buzz this
Are you looking for an exciting addition to your latest lesson plan?

There appears to be, at least in elementary and intermediate level English textbooks, an emphasis on using movie stars and other celebrities for instructional material.

A great website you may want to consider for celebrity material is Famous People Lessons.

You get a short story about a star's life (reading), an MP3 (listening), and exercises (writing).

So, you have already covered three of the four basic language skills.

You can easily slip in a discussion (speaking) to elicit the opinions of students about the person's life.

Now that is a complete lesson all from one website!
