The Good Supporter

The Good Supporter

This is a speaking activity which is designed to get students to think about what makes an effective language learner and what they could do to be more effective in their own studies.

Procedure

Ask the students which football team they support. Get a few suggestions.
 
Now put the students into small groups or pairs and ask them to think about a good team supporter and what a good supporter does. Try to get them to think of up to 10 things.
 
Once the students have had time to do this, get some from each group to swap around and compare the things they thought of with students from other groups.
 
Once they have had time to compare, ask them to think about what makes a good English students and see if they can find similarities between good supporters and good students.
 
Example:
 
Good Supporter Good Student
goes to watch all the games goes to all the classes
   
   
   

Once the students have finished comparing the two, ask them to think about which they are better at, being a student or being a supporter.

Ask the students if they can think of any ways they can be a better student.

Get a few examples and share them with the class.
