Teenage sons

Keywords: , ,

In this C2 English-English Mediation Activity, students are asked to help a friend understand and feel better about his/her relationship with his/her teenage son. It is a C2 level intralinguistic (English-English) mediation task to mediate texts.

In the pre-mediation section, students work on advanced vocabulary related to the topic.

As part of their strategy training, students practise how to link to previous knowledge while using emphatic structures or expressions, and how to simplify a text by rephrasing.

This mediation activity is excellent to train several mediation strategies and microskills:

  • rephrasing
  • streamlining a text
  • selecting the key ideas
  • choose what’s relevant for their interlocutor
  • adapting the language with highly specific words
