  • Download and print “reviews” chart.

Daily Objective

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.

Learning Check

Since this is focused on the interpretive, let it be a self-reflection of how much they understood. The next lesson will build on this one.

Mark their “Objective Sheets” if they can do it at their proficiency target.

Remind them to be working on their “Experiences,” especially if one relates to this objective.

If they are using the “Unit Vocabulary Sheet,” give them time to write down what they learned today.
