Lesson 19 – What kind of friend are you?

Warm up

  1. Let’s discuss it! what you think is important in a friend’s personality. Example:
    They should be friendly. Write friendly on the board. And what other things you think
    are important and write them up.
  2. Your teacher will write a few important words about this topic, think of the opposites of the adjectives, and write them beside positive words.

Main Activity

  1. You are going to find out about your own personality. Do it in pairs.
  2. You do not answer the questions but read them and underline any words you do not understand. Ask your partner to explain any words they do not understand.
  3. You can ask if there are any words you still do not know.
  4. What do most people do?
    What should they do?
    talk about these two questions in relation to the questions in the questionnaire, and then choose the true answers for yourself.

    What kind of friend are you?

    For every a, score 1. For every b, score 5. For every c, score 10.

    Check your scores:

Follow up

  • The class chose four adjectives of good personality from the list students produced during the Warm-up session at the beginning of the lesson.
  • Students will be formed into three groups. Each group thinks of one question, with a, b, c answers like in the questionnaire, for each of the four adjectives. For easy scoring:
    – Make “a” the most positive/best answer, scoring 10.
    – Make “b” the medium answer, not so good and not so bad, scoring
    – Make “c” the negative/worst answer, scoring
  • Each group writes each question on a separate piece of paper, making a class set of
    12 questions altogether, like in the original questionnaire.
  • Your teacher will combine all the questions into a single questionnaire by putting them
    on the wall under the four adjectives you chose.
  • Each group writes a short score sheet in their own words for one of the adjectives. As a guide:
    3-7: personality description not very good
    8-20: personality description = better
    21-30: personality description = good
  • You do the questionnaire and check your scores.
