    I need some advice

    This is a lesson plan that I have been given.

    Function: Asking for/giving opinion/preferences.

    Context: choosing a course (students asking course adviser)

    My problem is that I can't really see the opinion. For example, 'do you have any Hairdressing courses'? Answer: 'yes, we do, no, we don't. An opinion might be: "With hair like yours mate, I wouldn't bother becoming a hairdresser'.

    Does anyone see the problem? Also, my students are beginners.

    I don't fully understand the problem you've presented, Gyb. But as these are beginners, you have to, to my mind, make it simpler.

    How about:

    Do you have any classes in accounting?

    I think accounting will be the next big business in the US, do you offer a program?

    I'd like to pursue accounting, but would consider computers. What programs do you have that include both?
