Prepare a set of cue cards for use with a beginner’s class. Each card is to show a different nationality. Either make a simple line drawing of a face on each of 8 cards and write a typical name to go with each face eg French - Pierre, Japanese - Shoo OR If you cannot show the nationality (or it could be confusing or cause offence) by your drawing, draw the national flag on the card instead. Your set of 8 may consist of French, Spanish, Chinese, American, English, Greek, Italian, German or any interesting and useful combination of other nationalities. Illustrations taken from textbooks or from the Internet are acceptable. You are NOT required to send in the set of cue cards, we need to see the designs on paper.

In this module you should focus on the visual aids and how you use them to develop language. Whereas in the Lesson Stages and Plans you should focus on the planning of an integrated lesson in which you use texts, listening, activities, visual aids and so on.
Please note we need to see the designs of your cue cards, do NOT send any materials through the post.
