Here are some nice texts I found at esl.about.com. They are 4 small letters from teenagers who have a problem and are asking for advice.
I think I’m going to give each pair of students one text to read.
They should underline every word or expression they don’t understand and ask me to help them.
Once they’ve read their text, they should prepare some advice to give to him/her.
To finish with, every pair of students will read their text to the rest of the class, explain the difficult words too, and then read their response.
The class can then discuss about it, and other pairs can suggest alternatives, etc.
Hope you find it useful!
