  1. It’s really helpful. I’ll use it for my lesson about Past Simple. Thanks so much!

  3. Hi, Kieran. I’m going to use this on Monday. It reminds me of a similar lesson plan in NEF Advanced. I am also thinking of a post activity. I’m going to show them several pictures that represent my earliest memory, and they have to guess the story behind them. Then, they’ll have to do the same, sharing their pictures (they can use google images) on the facebook group that we have, and in class or at home, they’ll have to guess their mates’ stories. The final task is what you suggest, they have to tell their own memory using their best English. Thank you so much for this lesson and for everything you share with us.

    1. Hi Eva,
      Thanks a lot for commenting and telling how you plan to adapt the materials. Sounds great to me! please let me know how it goes.
      All the best,
      Kieran
