C1 ESL lesson plans are designed for students with full communication autonomy and functionality at work or in an academic setting in an English-speaking country.
For students at advanced level of language learning, grammar is not of much interest anymore. However, we still provide lesson plans with grammar units such as conditionals, wish/if only regrets, complex noun phrases, quantifying phrases, word stress, past modals, narrative tenses, gradable and ungradable adjectives, hedging, passive forms, inverted word order, complex noun phrases, and adjective clauses.
Vocabulary and discussion
Some of the topics our ESL advanced lesson plans for adults are based on are euphemisms, complex feelings and emotions, helicopter parenting, vulnerability, types of conversations, office buzzwords, common phrases and idioms used around office, traveling during pandemic, making excuses, money and enterprise, and many more to come.
Speaking exercises at C1 level
Improving speaking activities with the help of lesson plans from english4tutors will help you to speak in the way required at this level, i.e. fluently and spontaneously. A very important part of the speaking exercises is the expansion of vocabulary, its appropriate selection, as well as the expression of views and opinions on a given topic. At this level, speaking activities should be based on a thorough analysis of the discussion material and its full understanding.
Speaking exercises on different topics as a key to proficiency
Speaking activities should concern many different topics in order to be able to engage in a discussion on any topic: lifestyle, health, technology, science, hobbies, and many more. Speaking activities included in the lesson plans from english4tutors are varied and creative. In combination with practising other skills, they will enable you to master English at C1 level.
