Projects for real (3 of 15): the language of project management

deadline-PM

To continue the topic of project management in the ELT classroom, there is a good lesson on Onestopenglish by Barney Barratt which focuses learners on the language of projects (juicy little words like deployment or kick-off date) and how they map on the timeline. A very useful and engaging activity, especially if you notice that your teens’ eyes are glazing over with all those WBS and PMOs! The discussion questions in the materials can be good for Business English classes, though a bit too general and too work-related for my context. Still, the resource is an excellent combination of ‘fun’ and language work – definitely recommended.
