We will follow Andrew Binks’s activity
As an ice-breaker, I encourage my new
students to draw a "timeline" of their lives, marking major
events; then, in pairs, explain them, using whatever grammar
they are comfortable with.
Work alone for 15 minutes to draw a timeline
for your own life. Mark the major events on your line.
Then, work with a partner. Each partner will
explain their major events for 10 minutes (total 20 minutes).
