Lesson Plan Text

BULATS Writing First Lesson
Getting to know you/ Needs analysis/ Exam overview
Ask each other about the topics below. Don’t write anything down, but try to remember  
your partner’s answers because you will need that information for the next stage:

Use of English at work

Experience of other English language exams

Previous English studies

Now look under the folded line for your next task. 
Write a very quick answer to the question below by selecting the most important  
information from what your partner told you.

Task
You have received the following email:

Thank you very much for registering one of your employees on our BULATS preparation 
course. To help the teacher plan the lessons, could you briefly provide a few relevant 
details about that person?

I look forward to hearing from you soon.

Best regards

Alex Case, Director of Studies, BULATS Only English School

Write a short reply, including that person’s:

Use of English at work

Experience of English language exams

Previous English studies

When your teacher tells you, show your email to your partner. Is what you wrote accurate  
and do they think that you included the most important information? 

Compare emails with another person. What is similar and different, in terms of format,  
language, content and organization?

You have just completed a fairly typical BULATS Writing Part One exam task. How would  
you describe the format of the exam questions?

What else do you know or can you guess about BULATS Writing Part One, e.g. timing/  
scoring/ word limit?

What do you need to do and know in order to do well in Writing Part One, do you think?

Look at the example and information from the official BULATS handbook that your teacher  
gives you (

http://www.bulats.org/docs/candidate_en.pdf

 pages 26 and 27) to check.
