Hi Friends! Book 2 Lesson 8

                               I WANT TO BE A TEACHER

This lesson deals with the students’ dreams for the future.  As this is the end of two years of ‘international study’ [a.k.a. ‘English study’] and the students will soon be graduating, this lesson can be thought of as not only a ‘wrapping up’ of school studies, but also get them thinking about what they want to do in the future as career.

In this lesson students will not only present their ‘dreams’ but also their reasons for said choices.  The students will not simply memorize various occupation vocabulary but that they think seriously about what they want to be and what their dream job will entail.  By presenting their dreams to the class, the idea is to foster a positive environment that will encourage students to follow their dreams into the future.
