In this Intermediate lesson plan, students learn how to use connectors to present information. They will acquire language to refer to a visual when delivering a presentation.
Reading: Introduction to a presentation
The student reads an introduction to a presentation and identifies connectors/linkers and gets familiar with their use.
Vocabulary: sequencing linkers/connectors
They also learn some useful phrases to introduce a presentation and learn more about sequencing linkers (e.g. firstly, in the next slide, to sum up, etc.) which they can use to present information in a logical manner. After that, they put their knowledge into practice by filling in the gaps and sorting out connectors based on their purpose.

Some words from the video are extracted for the student to match them to their meaning.

In this part of the lesson, the student creates appropriate collocations (e.g. sharp decrease, fall dramatically, grow steadily, etc.).
