Learning Designs

Started by Elise in Teaching and Methodology Mar 27, 2019. 0 Replies

I was wondering what you all thought of learning designs pertaining to English language teaching? What are the ways in which you design your lessons to achieve better learning in your students?Continue


See this blog post and this older one, for full lists and suggestions regarding using commercials in the classroom.

The attached eBook contains all you will ever need for teaching with commercials. 

For Media Literacy see the Fact or Opinion exercise attached. Also this lesson comparing commercials and this one about the "Multi Platform Male".

Also, find the Commercial analysis chart I designed. Students can use it and analyze commercials.
The Fact / Opinion exercise is good for seeing if they can tell in commercials, what is fact, what is opinion.

Get the Mediawise video and materials below. Makes for a good media awareness lesson about commericals.

You will also find loads of commercials for click and play in our A/V player under WATCH.

Use our full directory to all the best commercials to use for teaching English. 

Now find all these resources on ELT Buzz Teaching Resources!

I love all of this. Thanks.
Thanks for the thumbs up Elias!

Have you seen my older blog posts with suggestions too? One here and the older one here...

I'm sure if we do a search, there will be a lot of other material about commercials here on EFL 2.0.

Here is a nice ebook with all the links / resources you'll ever need to use commercials in your English language classroom. Use with our directory of the best commercials. Your students will love learning English with commercials!

Here is another version of the "Make A TV Commercial" dialog worksheet above... 

Use with this real commercial which shows the language well. 

Here is an excellent, full lesson on "Infomercials".  

Students learn what they are, developing media literacy. Watch 3 examples. Finally, they write and perform for the class, their own infomercial. Who is the best seller in the class?

Snuggie Commercial



Here is a commercial ratings sheet where students compare and describe 5 commercials.  The elect one their #1 and tell others why.

Very simple lesson.

These lesson materials and lesson plan are pretty much good to go. 

1. Introduce students to basic vocab related to advertisment

2. Students do a basic wordsearch

3. Students watch 5 commercials and fill out the analysis sheet for the commercials.

This is a unique idea. Get students making their own advertisments using A2 paper/sheets.  Use the ppt attached.

Also see this very nice, simple commercial/ad  analysis sheet. 


This is a great powerpoint put together to analyze 4 commercials. All sterling. 

Download the combined video of all commercials HERE or click the ppt to download or watch each separately (smaller files).

Here is a worksheet and ideas for a full 1 or 2 lessons based on this "Force be with You" commercial. Enjoy! 

Also a nice media literacy series of worksheets about adverts. Good for reviewing vocabulary related to adverts (british English)
