Lesson Plan: Polite Questions in English

I can’t tell you how many times I’ve listened to my students in the cafeteria saying ‘give me chicken sandwich’ or ‘I want coke’ like they’re a bunch of knuckle dragging Neanderthals. Now, I know it’s not their fault – they simply don’t know any better – and in their language it might not even be necessary to be polite. However, as they are now in England I always make it my mission to teach my students to be as polite as possible.

So without further ado here is a nice little lesson I’ve used with B1 – B2 classes to turn those Neanderthals into proper English gentlemen and ladies.
