Lesson Plans for "Watch, Listen & Speak"



Listening & Speaking, Body Language


Body Language: Our body language can show many things about us, sometimes things that we want people to see, sometimes things that we don't want them to notice.


  • Greetings - Shaking Hands / Kissing

  • Leave takings - Standing Up / Hugging

  • Personal space


Example of how Body Language is used: When you are being interviewed it is very important that you give out the right signals. You should always look interested - so do not slouch in your chair. Never lie to anyone in an interview, your body language and tone of voice or the words you use will probably give you away - classic body language giveaways include scratching your nose and not looking directly at the other person when you are speaking to them.



Task: Group discussion about Body Language.
