A one page topic sheet giving topic lexis and synonyms in a word cloud + fixed & semi fixed responses (Varying skill levels) as well as an IELTS writing one question re. hobbies in NZ.
Useful for TOEFL / IELTS pt1&2 speaking or a general topic lesson to pull learners away from their usual "i like...." answers. I usually ask the learner to choose some language that is new to them and that they like the sound of and then reinforce their chosen phrases rather than think about all of them at once.
A good first/early lesson as it's a familiar topic, deals with face validity issues and has a writing HW so you can make a fuller assessment of the student in the 'early days'.
