COVID-19 Campaign Script – ESL Lesson

Hello teachers and learners! Here is a lesson you can do in order to practice your English writing skills.

In this lesson, students are taught on how to do a research on the internet and how to write a simple YouTube video script. The main goal is to let students write their sentences and present it in a script form. When the script is done, teachers can instruct them to practice speaking their script. If they have already mastered it, let the students take a video like they are delivering in their YouTube channel.

Here is a sample script. There are three parts, the introduction, body and the conclusion. Teachers should assign students in groups and let them work together.

COVID-19 ESL Conversation At the Medical Centre

Doctor: Good morning, Mr. Johnson. What can I do for you?

Mr. Johnson: Well doctor, I’ve had this dry cough for the past couple of days and I think I might have a bit of a fever too.

Doctor: Mmm, let me take your temperature. 38.5 degrees. That is quite high. Have you got any other symptoms?

Mr. Johnson: Well, I’ve been feeling very tired lately and I’ve got these aches and pains all over my body.

Doctor: And do you have any difficulty breathing?

Mr. Johnson: Yes, I do tend to get out of breath very quickly.

Doctor: I see, What about your sense of taste and smell?

Mr. Johnson: Now that you mention it, I think I may have lost those too.

Doctor: I’m afraid it looks like you’ve caught the corona virus.

Mr. Johnson: But I always wear my mask when I go out and I regularly wash my hands. And I’ve been respecting all the social distancing rules.

Doctor: Well, we can’t be sure unless you take a test. In any case you’re going to have to self-isolate for the next seven days. In the meantime, I’ll give you a prescription for some paracetamol. You should also drink plenty of fluids. If your condition worsens, you’ll have to call “one-one-one”. Good luck Mr. Johnson, and make sure you get your vaccination when the time comes.

Mr. Johnson: Don’t worry doctor, I will.
