It was E3, quite a good group: I knew I might be observed on the session so I pulled out the stops in my preparation. My planning was better than usual, rigorous even you might say... introduction, progression, practice, development and a range of activities to produce a role play. I could show you my session plan if you like.

I know it was an age-old topic, health, but I've really made it interesting by turning it into phoning the national health line. I mean, they could do it at home for real if they wanted to, and it's really looking at the pragmatics of the language in a communicative language teaching sense.

Anyway, I was really confident it was going to be great and it was describing symptoms, so it should have been quite easy.
