A2 / Pre‐Intermediate60 minFlipped LessonUnlimited Plan

This is a Flipped Classroom lesson plan. In a nutshell, it means that first part of the lesson needs to be done by students at home. Learn more about flipped classroom and how we implement it in those lesson plans in our post.

PRE-CLASS ACTIVITIES

Expressions with ‘learn’

Before the lesson, students need to complete a series of vocabulary exercises. The first one starts with a phrase map. Students look at eight incomplete phrases with the verb learn and choose a word from a box to complete each of them (e.g. learn by heart, learn a lesson). Next, they put them into practice and use each phrase to complete one of eight gapped sentences. Afterwards, students look at a list of jumbled sentences containing sequence adverbs (e.g. next, then, finally) and put them in order to create a short text about learning. 

IN-CLASS ACTIVITIES

Video & discussion

The in-class part of the lesson starts with a matching activity. Students look at question halves involving the expressions with learn which they studied earlier and join the corresponding pairs. Then, they discuss them and share their learning experiences with their classmates. They move on to the first part of a video about learning new skills. Students watch the first minute and answer three questions, making some predictions about the next part. Then, they watch the rest of the video and using some words given in a box, they have to complete ten sentences (starting with sequence adverbs) to summarise the story shown in the video. The video activities are followed by a discussion about the necessity of learning new skills and a writing task. Students have to think of one thing they have learnt and write down how they learnt it using sequence adverbs in the box.
