The Right to Repair, An Introduction

ESL news-based lesson plan

Lesson Overview

ESL lesson on Business and the economy. Students will learn about a new directive promoted by the European Commission called the “right to repair.” It aims to reduce consumer costs and promote a circular economy’s growth by allowing consumers to repair products themselves.  

It focuses on practising key reading, speaking, collaboration and critical thinking skills.  If used as a flipped ESL lesson, you will need at least 90 minutes to complete this lesson. However, lessons can run up to 3 hours ( consider two  90-minute lessons or for university teachers to adjust as needed).

While targeting intermediate and upper-intermediate language learners of English, it is highly adaptable as it has been purposely designed to facilitate mixed-level classes. This includes targeting professionals in a tertiary institution such as a university or within a professional environment.
