Talking about symptoms and suggestions (A2 CEFR)

This lesson was planned for an Instagram Live lesson that took place on the 7th of April of 2020.

First students are going to be presented with the vocabulary, then tested – in order to see if they are on the same page, then the freer practice relates to the students’ families.

Then I decided to revive my blog using it.
