The theme for our Intermediate (3) class this week has been Advertising, using Comparatives and Superlatives as our Grammar point.
Yesterday, I introduced students to Groupon – a website which offers incredible deals on restaurants, beauty treatments, entertainment and much more.
Based on my preferences (of location and food choices), students set off on a webquest where they had to search and compare various deals on restaurant specials being offered in Cape Town.
I was really proud of the students as they used the Grammar point in the correct context, eg: “You should go to ABC restaurant because it’s cheaper than XYZ” or “This restaurant has a more relaxing atmosphere than XYZ.”
Not only did the students enjoy the activity, but they got to expand their vocabulary and learn more about great deals offered in Cape Town!
