Lesson of the Week: Proverbs

Proverbs contributed by an Indonesia ETA

“Practice makes perfect.” “You can’t judge a book by its cover.” “There’s no time like the present.” Such sayings come easily from the tongues of native speakers, but even for English language learners who understand the meanings of these proverbs, using them comfortable can be difficult and daunting.

For this lesson, students are introduced to a series of proverbs before they are divided into groups and asked to develop and act out role-plays using one of these proverbs in a given situation.
