In this lesson, students learn how to use the verbs look (like) and feel (like) and watch an ad for a shirt. They also do several A2 speaking activities, which gives them plenty of opportunities to talk about clothes.
A2 SPEAKING ACTIVITIES & GRAMMAR
At the beginning of the lesson, students describe clothes that people in two photographs are wearing. They also talk about the clothes from the photos that they like to wear. After that, students read six statements about the photos (e.g. The woman’s clothes look casual.) and decide if they agree with them or not. They also have to give explanations for their choices. After that, students move on to a short grammar section in which they decide when the verbs look and feel are followed by like. This part of the lesson ends with a controlled practice exercise in which students decide which of the eight given sentences should be completed with like (e.g. When I put on my pyjamas, I feel like the happiest person in the world.). Then, they discuss if the sentences are true for them and give some details.
VIDEO & PRACTICE
In this part of the lesson, students watch an ad for ‘the best shirt in the world’. Before the first viewing, they guess which things from the list will appear in the ad (e.g. a mirror, a washing machine), and give reasons for their guesses. Before the second viewing, students match sentence halves (e.g. You look casual, but feel professional.), after which they watch the video again and tick the sentences they hear in the ad. Students then move on to a speaking task in which they discuss what they saw in the ad. After that, they read a short text describing a situation, which leads them to the last of the A2 speaking activities in this lesson. They must choose two prompts from the list (e.g. Amy is going hiking.), and describe the situation using the language from the lesson (e.g. She feels like…, His clothes look like…). Finally, students present the situations they prepared to the class trying not to use their notes.
