Job Application Task

I made this for my final CELTA class. It's a fake newspaper jobs page. I wanted my students to write a job application cover letter (although you could adapt this for a speaking class and have them do an interview), and so I put some questions on the back. I wanted to check that they understood the content of the advert first, before writing.

Before doing this activity I gave my students a model, of course, and we explored some useful language points for writing a cover letter.

Love/Hate + verb-ing Worksheet

I recently taught a CELTA class about saying whether you like/love/hate etc doing something. The grammar is pretty simple.

subject + like/love/hate/don't mind/don't like + verb-ing

Here's the worksheet I put together. I think it's pretty self-explanatory. I initially taught my students the grammar on a whiteboard, with the "smileys" representing like/love etc on a cline. 

Feel free to download and print for your classes.
