C1 – Every Birth Generation Explained

This lesson is packed with exciting activities! We recommend using a flipped format. Feel free to identify any unfamiliar expressions based on your students’ proficiency levels and share them with your students before the lesson. The great part is that it doesn’t require much preparation, but it will certainly enhance the flow of the class.

In this lesson, your students will have a blast with numerous discussions, fun activities, group games, exploring time-related phrasal verbs, getting to know every recognized generation in the West, learning useful vocabulary for discussing social issues, and practicing their vocabulary skills. The reading sections are short, approximately 100-150 words each. While it’s designed for C1 level students, you can easily adapt it for B2 levels as well. Enjoy the lesson!
