Lesson Plan Text

An Introduction to BULATS Writing Getting to know you/ Needs analysis
Ask each other about the topics below. There’s no need to 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

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 for registering a member of your International Office on our BULATS course. To 
help the teacher plan the lessons, could you briefly provide some brief relevant information 
on that person?

I look forward to hearing from you soon.

Best regards
Alex Case, Head of Special Courses

Write a short reply, including that person’s:

Use of English at work

Experience of English language exams

Previous English studies

Show your email to the person you wrote about. 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 task. What do you 
notice about the format of the task? What else do you know or can you guess about 
BULATS Writing Part One, e.g. timing and scoring?
