‘Working as a Volunteer in a Charity Shop’ is a resource for learners between Entry 3 – L1/Intermediate 1 – 2. It uses authentic sound recordings with ESOL learners who work in a charity shop as a springboard to practise all four skills within this context. It is aimed at learners who are already working as volunteers in charity shops or who want to find out more about working in the sector. It will also be useful for any learners who might visit charity shops.
There are 5 units in ‘Working in a charity shop’ which you can deliver sequentially or as standalone units. In the first unit the subject and key vocabulary are introduced.
Timings are flexible since learners can work through at their own pace and you can adapt the resource to suit your learners and build in revision as required.
The teachers’ notes include suggestions on exploiting the materials, and teachers are encouraged to adapt them to meet group/individual needs. You can download the worksheets and an answer key for this unit below.
