- Download and print “reviews” chart.
Introduce the daily objective. See if they can figure it out. Help them by using cognates, actions, or props.
Show the question.
Où préfères-tu manger? Pourquoi?
Have them answer it on their own or with a partner. Ask the class to share their thoughts and take a poll.
Give them the “reviews” chart.
Show the Yelp reviews one by one. Let them on their own try to figure out and categorize as many words/phrases as they can.
Now let them compare what they found with a partner.
Finally go over what they found as a class. Ask them (in target language) for a word/phrase to put under “positive reviews.” Then add to it.
Another option is to draw this chart on large paper and put it on the wall/bulletin board. They can add to it. If there are any really good words that they missed, point them out and show them where to add it.
This is a great way to let them figure out the vocabulary on their own.
