Learn how to warm up your ESL students

In this video you will see the teacher warm up his students with an activity. This draws them into the lesson. It gets them interested, excited and focused.

The objective of this part of the lesson plan is to warm up your students. The goal is to draw your students into the lesson. That can be done a number of ways, here we use an activity to get the students attention. After you have their attention you can then proceed to the next part of the lesson.

Here are some otherĀ warm-up activities and icebreakers to choose.

"Hi Ian! I loved the course! It wasn't really difficult, but it was not easy - and I feel like I learned a lot. I definitely plan to continue using the resources. I have applied for and set up over 7 interviews already in China. If you add on various additional certs, like Young learners and what not I would take those. I plan to take a job in China and blog about it for the year to qualify for the 1000 hour cert. Thanks so much for an awesome learning experience" - Sandra Dee Bonadonna, TEFL 120
