Problems and difficulties

Type: General lesson plan

A lesson by Adrian Doff focusing on the grammar and functional language of problems and how to solve them.

There are three ways to use this worksheet:

  1. Give the worksheet to students to work through independently and then, in the next lesson, go through the exercises and deal with any points that may arise.
  2. Use the worksheet for an active classroom lesson. The notes below give ideas for doing this.
  3. Do not give the worksheet out in class, but use it as the basis for your own lesson, getting ideas and phrases from the students and presenting language on the board (use the notes below to help you). Then give out the worksheet at the end, and ask the students to do the exercises for homework.

  • Good worksheet for a fairly serious business group, but there's an error! The second box down on the left says that 'hard' is a noun. I think it should say that 'difficulty' is a noun. Cheers!
