Sustainability lessons

The environment has always been close to my heart and I’ve always included environmental topics in my courses or lessons, such as these on bottled water, sustainable urban planning, and air quality.

Seeing the material and ideas shared in the ELT Footprint group and joining a course created and offered by Owain Llewellyn motivated me to start this section on my website, with a collection of lesson plans based on principles and strategies for meaningful integration of environment-based lessons into language teaching courses.

These are just examples to illustrate how existing, authentic materials can be used for environmental-themed lessons.

Most lesson ideas and plans I have come across are for young learners or the general English class. My interest is, however, mainly in ESP (English for Specific Purposes), and particularly in EAP (English for Academic Purposes). So, the lessons plans are for adult learners.
