B1 – Daily Grind

This B1 ESL lesson is centered around a thought-provoking video that portrays a woman trapped in a relentless cycle: she’s overworked, addicted to doomscrolling and binge-watching, dissatisfied with her boss, and unable to effect change. Unlike typical B1-level content found online, this topic delves deeper. It provides an excellent opportunity for your students to enhance conversational skills, acquire new vocabulary, discuss workplace and daily life challenges, and practice writing. While this lesson includes an animated video, it is specifically tailored for adult English learners. Designed for B1 proficiency, it can also be adapted for A2 learners as a flipped lesson.
