Memorandum

  • Let the learner choose an occupation (e.g. by drawing a card from a container). He/she must then do some research on that occupation or speak to someone so that he/she can do oral about it in class.
  • Write a few examples of occupations on cardboard that can fit on a learner’s head like a hat. He/she must not be able to see it. Let him/her stand in front of the class. While the others give him/her clues, he/she must try to guess what “his/her occupation” is. (Support them by guiding them. The other learners must be allowed to mimic).
  • Building industry – encourage the learners to exhibit the different kinds of building materials. Write the occupations of people who are involved in building a house on cardboard.
  • Important telephone numbers – help the learners to write down the correct numbers on page 10. It is a good idea to let them design a card on which all their numbers appear. This card could be carried on their person.
