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.

Ice cream choices: Get a Baskin-Robbins ice cream menu.

A: Here's a {flavor} for you.

[B picks a paper at random from a stack that have either a + or a - on them]

B: [with a minus] No thank you. I'm not very fond of [__]. I'd rather have/If I had my druthers .../Do you think I can/could have {___} instead

==============

Lets' go out for [type of food].

I"m not big on [___]. I'd just as soon go for [___]

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?
