AS… AS GRAMMAR STRUCTURE

The lesson starts with a warm-up activity in which students discuss some questions about professional athletes. Then, they decide how important some things are if one wants to become a professional athlete (e.g. be talented, get up early, have parents who are athletes). After the discussion, students look at three statements with the as… as grammar structure and choose their correct meanings. They also do a task which helps them discover when the structure is used. Next, students do some controlled practice. They need to rewrite sentences about different sports using phrases in brackets. All the sentences use the as… as grammar structure. This part of the lesson about sport ends with an activity in which students need to decide whether they agree with the statements about sport. They use what they know about the sports from the statements to explain their choices.

VIDEO & DISCUSSION

This part of the lesson starts with the video. During the first viewing, students need to tick the things the video shows. During the second viewing, students complete some missing words. Then, they decide how the statements from the video ended. They also discuss some questions about the video. In the final part of this lesson about sport, students read some statistics about men and women in sport and need to decide if statements in the task are true or false. The statements contain the as… as grammar structure. Then, students look at the statistics again and discuss some questions. They also have to read some comments with possible reasons behind the statistics, and decide whether they think the comments are true.

    Greetings Ewa!
    Great work, as usual.
    In this lesson, on slide 8, it would be better to use “golfers” instead of “golf players.”
    The term golfers is the standard here, e.g. Tiger Woods is a professional golfer.
    Cheers!

      Your kind words are much appreciated 🙂 And thanks for the suggestion but I think both are OK to use.
