WARM-UP & LISTENING
The lesson starts with a short warm-up during which students discuss different things they need to have in a place they rent in various situations (on holiday, when moving to a new city to study, on a business trip). After that, students do a listening exercise. They listen to a landlord talking about a flat and answer the questions about it. Then, they move on to a grammar part of the lesson and learn how to use articles.
GRAMMAR & ROLE PLAY
In this part of the lesson, students learn the grammar rules and have a chance to practise using them. First, they read the script of the recording and learn the rules on how to use articles. There is also an additional activity that helps to reinforce the understanding of the rules after which students move on to a more practical part of the lesson. They listen to one more recording of a landlord speaking about a flat and try to say what’s missing. Since there are no articles, the next task for students is to complete the transcript with articles, if necessary. Students also have to complete sentences with their own ideas and have a discussion about renting a flat.
Finally, students look at the pictures of a flat and try to come up with questions about it. After that, they have a role play where one student is a landlord and the other one is a person trying to find a flat.
This lesson plan also includes an additional grammar task to practise how to use articles. It’s available in the teacher’s version of the worksheet. You can print it, and hand it out to your students. It’s also included in the e-lesson plan if you teach online.
