Blog / Tips and tricks

As an ESL teacher, I know firsthand how difficult it can be to get students excited about learning English. I mean, let’s face it, grammar rules and vocabulary lists aren’t exactly the most thrilling topics in the world. However, I also know that there are plenty of creative ways to make learning English fun and exciting for students. That’s why I’m excited to share with you the advantages of using our travel-themed ESL lesson plans that cover a variety of topics, including trip planning, accommodation, transportation, customs, cultures, sightseeing, and more.  

What’s that? Your students can’t afford traveling to these places? Fear not, my fellow teacher. It’ll be like taking a virtual trip around the world without them ever leaving the comfort of their own home (or classroom). And who doesn’t love a good adventure? 

What are the advantages?

Fasten your seatbelts and let me explain why english4tutors Travel lesson plans provide an exciting and immersive way for students to learn English. 

Sparking creative thinking

One of the greatest advantages is that they encourage students to think critically and creatively. As students learn about different destinations, they are also exposed to new cultures, traditions, and customs. This provides a great opportunity for students to practice their critical thinking skills by comparing and contrasting different cultures and exploring the similarities and differences between them. Your student will learn why British people drive on the left side of the road, why Americans smile so much, what is ‘stiff upper lip’, and much more.

Discussions based on personal experience

By incorporating travel-related vocabulary and grammar, students can better understand the language in context and engage in meaningful conversations about their own cross-cultural or traveling experiences. Why not give it a try with ‘What did you do on holiday?

Improving language skills through interactive activities

Lesson plans in this category help students develop important language skills such as listening, speaking, reading, and writing. Through interactive activities such as role-playing, associations, guessing games, and more, students can practice these skills in a fun and engaging way. Plus, the content itself is sure to keep them interested and motivated.

Navigating real-world situations

Another advantage is that they provide an opportunity for students to improve practical language skills. Whether it’s ordering food at a restaurant, asking for directions, or haggling with street vendors, our lesson plans equip students with the language they need to navigate real-world situations. These practical language skills are invaluable for students who plan to go abroad or those living in multicultural communities. 

Exploring places and cultures

Perhaps one of the most exciting advantages of using these lesson plans is that they can inspire students to explore the world beyond their own borders. By learning about different destinations and cultures, students may even get itchy feet. This not only expands their worldview but also motivates them to continue learning English in order to communicate with people from different backgrounds. They’ll be able to learn and talk about the Lofoten Islands, find out and discuss why Danes are considered the happiest nation, or learn how to avoid London’s worst tourist traps.

So, if you’re looking for a way to make learning English more fun and entertaining for your students, consider using our ESL lesson plans. You’ll be sure to create a learning experience that your students will never forget. And who knows, you might just inspire your students to become the world travelers they were meant to be.
Bon voyage!

P.S. If all else fails, your student can always order pizza in English (because let’s be real, pizza is the universal language).
