A2 / Pre‐Intermediate60 minStandard LessonUnlimited Plan

WARM-UP & VIDEO

In the warm-up activity students look at five pictures related to house interior. They focus on seven specific objects and match them with their names in a box (e.g. knobs, towels). After that, they engage in a short discussion about their own houses. The aim of the next exercise is to pre-teach students the vocabulary they’ll later hear in a video. They look at a box with eight words and use them to complete eight gapped phrases. This part of the lesson leads to a video about a very unusual resident of Brooklyn and three questions about her which students have to answer. Then, they focus on a set of eight phrases, watch the video again and decide whether the woman uses them in the present, past or future. Next, they reflect on the video and relate its theme to the role of colours in their own lives.

PRESENT, PAST AND FUTURE FORMS REVISION

The listening activities are followed by grammar practice. First, students analyse seven gapped sentences and complete them with one auxiliary verb each so that they’re true for the main character of the video. Afterwards, they look at seven jumbled questions and have to put the words in the correct order. Once they know the correct answers, they discuss them with their partners. The final activity gives them a chance to revise present, past and future forms. Students have to write three sentences about themselves: one in the present, one in the past and one in the future and make sure that one of them is true and two are false. To make it more challenging, they should include the words and phrases which they studied earlier in the lesson. Then, they read their sentences to each other and try to guess which sentences are false.

    I really like this class, I adapted it a little with fewer exercises and more conversation. Using it again tomorrow. Thanks so much!

      Thanks for your feedback, Blaithin 🙂 We always try to include as much conversation as possible in our lessons. Communication is the whole point of learning English, isn’t it?
