This rare Ferrari and the movie Ferris Bueller's Day Off were the inspiration for this giving advice lesson.
There is a dialogue and a worksheet for students to carry out in groups.

First things first.

Part One (Dialogue)

1. There is a dialogue. Read the Dialog to the students with your JTE.
2. Check student comprehension. I usually get the JTE to ask them questions in Japanese about it.
3. Perform the Dialogue a second time
4. Allow the students to read the dialogue. Teach any words or phrases they don't understand. From experience I find that lower grade students may be confused by the conditional. If I were you I would...
Point out the phrases which are in a box. These are the patterns which we want them to use in the final activity!
Check with the JTE
before the lesson to see what words may be difficult for the students.
5. Students in pairs. Get them to practice the dialogue

Part Two (Worksheet)

1. Distribute a copy of the worksheet to everyone
2. Read the situations to all the students. Check understanding. JTE can help with this
3. Ask the students to work in pairs. They should think of some advice to give in each of these situations.
   Ask them to write using the "giving advice" patterns which are highlighted in the dialogue.
4. Choose a few students to read their advice out-loud to the class.
5. Students should practice dialogue again. This time they replace the situation in the dialogue with one from the sheet.

Part Three (Mingling Activity)

1. Students must choose one problem from the above.
2. They must then walk around the room and interview five students, asking for their advice.
3. They should also give advice to anyone who approaches them.
4. They should write down the name of the student they talk to and the advice that they were given. Observe them doing this so that they ACTUALLY do it!
