Opening a bank account



Level:
Topic: ,
Keywords: , ,

In this C1 English-English Mediation Worksheet students are asked to help somebody understand what they need to know to open a bank account.  It is a C1 intralinguistic (English-English) mediation task.

In the pre-mediation section, students look at ways to express contrast and add information using “whereas” and “besides”.

As part of their strategy training, students learn how to amplify a dense text and practise defining concepts.

Students A and B have different sources of information (essential to bear in mind when making your copies), but the rest of the worksheet is the same for both of them.

This comprehensive mediation activity is excellent to train several mediation strategies:

    • explaining new concepts
    • simplifying the information
    • selecting the most relevant bits of information
    • clarifying part of the information
    • explaining a cultural concept
    • asking questions to check previous knowledge
