Teaching "I'm glad to hear that."
« on: May 08, 2018, 02:56:14 pm »
My textbook isn't one of the ones covered in the textbook-based lessons section, so I'm having a hard time coming up with something to do for this lesson. Since I'm forced at my main school to do it part-by-part, I have to cover the section using "I'm glad to hear that."

Beyond also teaching "That's a relief," or "Thank goodness," I have no idea how to turn this into a game. Any suggestions?

I don't have a game. 

I taught a lesson on responding to news (good and bad), and at the end I had a student try to respond to 3 pieces of news quickly.  They often ended up congratulating me on bad news, or offering condolences to good news.  The key is to pressure them to respond quickly.  The students seemed to enjoy it.  I've attached my worksheet and the final part of my ppt so you can see what I'm talking about.

Good luck with your lesson
