I really couldn’t tell you when I made this PPT, or if I even used it. I found it in my old ESL files today, and I have a feeling I made it when I was teaching in public schools in 2009.
Either way, it can work for you, especially if you’re in China, as you can see from this slide:
Here’s another one that I think would be great with some pictures of the places listed:
Here’s a good slide that shows how this Asking for Directions ESL PowerPoint can help all teachers, even those teaching ESL to adults:
And remember, you can always do the same lesson again, or at least parts of it in a recap lesson. Students might have zero interest, but it sure reinforces the material.
When it comes to that material you might want to use visuals, and maps are perfect for that. Try to lay out vocabulary and even add in your own pictures.
It’s very basic with no animations or pictures...really one of my early ESL PPTs. That's why it's free, but I know you can spruce it up. Have fun!
