The video might be unsuitable for some audience! Viewer discretion is advised. Consider using this lesson plan only with adults and make sure it’s culturally appropriate for your students!

FUTURE CONTINUOUS AND FUTURE PERFECT

The lesson starts with a discussion about the future. Students have to look at an image we prepared and tell how our lives might be different in 50 years in their opinion. Next, they read a short text and on its basis complete a table with rules and forms of Future Continuous and Future Perfect. Additionally, they get one more grammar task where they have to complete a few sentences with the correct forms of the verbs given. To practise these sentence in speaking, students work in pairs and make predictions about their lives using the tenses they’ve learnt about in this lesson.

VIDEO & DISCUSSION

The video included in this lesson plan was recommended by one of our subscribers. Thanks, Agnes! Before watching the video, students discuss what technologies will emerge in the future. Next, they watch just a 30‐sec excerpt and guess what the man shown there might be doing. After that, they watch the whole video and take some notes about the world presented in the video. Finally, using their notes, students discuss the future as shown in the video using Future Continuous and Future Perfect. The lesson plan ends with a general discussion about our future, technology, etc.
