    Dear Teacher,

    Our Classroom Activities are a rich teaching resource designed for school pupils at CEFR levels B2 and C1. The booklet consists of 60 ready-to-use activities complete with photocopiable worksheets, audio CD, audio script and answer key.

    They are arranged in five study units based on different topics:(1) People, (2) Places, (3) Events, (4) Miscellaneous and (5) Activities.

    The exercises focus on one specific skill at a time and encourage pupils to practise their English in a communicative way. All our activities can be used in class as preparation for the telc examinations at B2 and C1 levels; telc English B2 School, telc English C1, and the dual-level examination telc English B2C1 University.

    You will notice that some of the practice activities exactly mirror the tasks contained in the telc School and University examinations whilst others have a different format. The former are useful for acquainting your learners with the actual examination, and the latter have been included to add fun and variety to your lessons.

    Please note: most of the worksheets can be copied onto one side of a sheet of paper, but some continue on the other side of the page.

    We hope that you and your students enjoy working with our Classroom Activities.

    As a group, discuss the following:

    Work experience is an opportunity to try out or gain an insight into a particular job you would like to pursue as a career if this job doesnt live up to your expectations, it is just as valuable an experience as discovering that you are more convinced than ever that this is the right career choice for you.

    or

    It is beneficial both to yourself and to your CV to gain work experience doing jobs completely different to the kind of job you wish to pursue in the future.

    Here are some photos of young people doing different types of work experience. Talk to a partner about any work experience you yourself have done*, giving details about:

    where you worked and what tasks your work involved

    your working schedule (length of time, daily routine and hours)

    your boss and colleagues

    the atmosphere of the working environment

    whether you liked/disliked it and why.

    * If you havent done any work experience, talk about what kind of place you would like to get some work experience and what you would expect to learn and experience there.

    You have recently returned from a three-day trip to London where you stayed at a three-star hotel which belongs to a well-reputed global chain of hotels. Unfortunately, you were not impressed with the service in the hotel as you experienced various problems during your stay, including:

    no hot water

    window couldnt be opened

    air-conditioning couldnt be adjusted.

    The hotel reception and concierge staff were neither polite nor helpful and didnt seem to be interested in, or capable of, dealing with any of your issues. You decide to write a letter of complaint to the hotel chains headquarters about the quality of customer service during your stay at their London hotel. Give your feedback in a polite but straightforward style, mentioning at least four of the following points:

    Give sufficient information about your reservation.

    Describe two of the problems you experienced, giving details of the staffs response to your complaints.

    Suggest how the staff should have responded.

    Ask for compensation.

    Offer some positive feedback about the restaurant and other facilities in the hotel.

    Say what you might do in the future, depending on their response.

    Express disappointment that your holiday was ruined.

    Begin and end the letter appropriately. Make sure you deal with each guiding point clearly and in detail.

    RaindancerPosted: Yesterday, 7:52 pm, In: Frankfurt am MainFor Christmas one year, my mum gave me some used puzzles she had picked up at a boot sale earlier. That same year, my siblings were given electric garage door openers. For my birthday, a few months before I moved to Germany in 1986, she invited me to lunch. When the waitress came to the table and asked if it was one bill or if we were paying separately, my mum said separately. Thanks for the lunch invitation, mum!

    ZincPosted: Yesterday, 7:55 pm, In: Munich When I was younger, I always got clothes from the secondhand shop my mum worked in. The clothes were never my size (usually way too small), and they just didnt suit me in any way (usually way too pink). I couldnt give them back or exchange them, so I had to wear them. My mother would expect gratitude from me, but I just couldnt give it and I often got into trouble.

    GeraldG Posted: Yesterday, 9:22 pm, In: Salzgitter My mum gives strange presents, too. Not something that is old or second-hand, but something she bought that she liked, regardless of the fact that you wouldnt like it at all. One year, she went on holiday to Spain. She found a shop that sold cushions. They were white or blue with some pink and glittery stripes on them and she liked them so much that, according to my dad, she kept going back every day and buying more and eventually brought a suitcase full of them back for each of my siblings, which we were given for Christmas. After opening my cushion, having no idea what to do with it, I asked her if she liked it. She said that she did. I then asked her if she wanted to keep it, she was surprised but she said yes, so I gave it back to her. Then my sister gave hers back to her, too. Our brother wasnt there at the time but he later said he didnt realize he c...
