WARM-UP

The first task focuses on idioms and fixed phrases connected with sleep, for example sleep like a log, a light sleeper or a short nap. Students have to choose words they think complete the given expressions. Then, working in pairs, they should discuss the questions from the previous exercise.

GRAMMAR POINT – STRUCTURES OF USED TO

Next, students learn grammar structures of used to, be used to and get used. First, they have to study some sentences and match them with correct meanings. Then, they have two situations and they have to complete three sentences to each of them with their own ideas. The next one is a sentence-completion task. After filling the gaps, students discuss in pairs which sentences are true for them.

VIDEO AND DISCUSSION

Finally, the last two activities are based on the video. Students have to answer the comprehension questions on the speech and speaker’s ideas. Then, they should move to a short discussion point and talk about other issues connected with sleep.
