A lesson on the little-covered topic of “Flags” and associated words and phrases (e.g banner). Students discuss questions such as “What do the colours in your national flag represent?” in a fluency activity before moving on to discover expressions and idioms connected with the word “flag”. For example, “to flag down (a car)” and “to wave a white flag”. Further opportunities for fluency practice are  provided with stimulating questions such as “Why do people sometimes burn flags?”
