I only teach the listening/speaking pages in the textbook and since this week, the language was a little one-note I did a lesson on travel for the first page.  I'm sure part of it was from waygook already, so thanks to the original contributors.

I'm trying to work out something to do for "how do you say ____" in English because while I think it's useful, I'm not sure how to make an activity.

I only have my students once a week and so I want each class to be fun and memorable. (Don't we all, though?) Although TEACHING English is important (and my job!), I like to make class interactive and enjoyable enough that students are using English of their own free will. So maybe it's not the textbook phrase, but I like when they feel free enough to share their own thoughts and opinions.
I'm not sure how/what other schools want their NETs to teach, but I just thought I would give you some background info before I share my lesson.

First off, I modified amandamiller430's already modified PPT, so THANK YOU to everyone who helped with that!

I got the kids hyped for a travel day, and in the beginning I showed them the video of a man who traveled all around the world and took a selfie video everywhere he went. (It's linked in the PPT but I'll also paste it here for those who only want to use that video)

Next we visited some famous places together.

Later, I told the students they were going to plan their own trip, just like the Around the World selfie man. I put them in groups of four and had them choose 7 countries that they wanted to go to. I attached the worksheet that I created for that activity.

After everyone finished writing (should only take about 5 minutes), the fun begins!
Tell the students they must not change their answers. Next, each group should choose a representative and read their countries to the class.
IF no one chose the same country as them, they will get one point for each country. If another group has it, they can just put an X over that number.
(I don't tell the students the rules until this point, because I want to hear what countries they sincerely want to visit).

After each group shared, I played the second part of the game with them. This is taken from Talk 1 in the book.
(I chose 8 countries that I want to visit. I pasted my face all over those countries! I doubt you want my face in your slide show, right?! Feel free to replace with your own face, or use real pictures of yourself in other countries, or even just show a regular tourist pic from that country).
Here is where the rules change! If a group wrote down the same country as you (whether they put an X over it or not), they will also get one point.
Have students ask you "Where did you take this picture?"
Answer with "I took it in _________"

That would usually take up all of our class time.
However, if you have some extra time to spare at the end, you can use the format from Talk 2: "How do you say ____ in Korean?"
We revisited the famous places and I had them teach me the Korean names for it.
They would reply "We say _______". The loved teaching me and hearing my bad pronunciation! :D

I have to teach Listen and Talk and Conversation Zone at my second school.

I made this little memory matching game and ppt for page 153. The students will be in groups and try to match Anna's questions to Kristoff's answers.  Some students got really into it.

I have to teach the real life zone from the text book and usually supplement it with a PPT. For this unit I teach parts A and B then use the PPT to teach housing types vocab that will be useful for part C. Finally I use the PPT to teach vocab that appears in the video. The class then watch the video making notes on what each celebrity has in their house, which is summarized at the end with a discussion.

Time permitting I ask students to write about what they would have in their houses if they were a celebrity so as to utilize the new vocab or if they aren't concentrating well I teach them how to play M.A.S.H.

Did an idioms lesson because the chapter talks about some different idioms.  They played a game guessing idioms.  I got most of the ideas from other ppts on Waygook so I adapted some of someone else's stuff.

EDITED: Lesson deleted when Waygook started charging for material we made without consulting users first.
