In this lesson students practise the use of quantifiers with countable and uncountable nouns (too much, too many, (not) enough) while talking about typical problems faced by most cities.
QUANTIFIERS WITH COUNTABLE AND UNCOUNTABLE NOUNS
In the first activity, students look at five photos showing different aspects of a city life and describe them using the words given in a box (e.g. pollution, rubbish, traffic). After a short discussion about their own cities and what they like and dislike about them, students classify the nouns from the first exercise into countable and uncountable. Then, they look at some pictures of sample campaign slogans (e.g. Clean air for everyone!) and match them to the city problems . The aim of this exercise is to expose students to sentences containing quantifiers (too much, too many, (not) enough) so they are able to understand how to use them and complete five rules in the next task.
CONTROLLED & FREE PRACTICE
The second part of the lesson starts with a gap-fill task. Students choose a word from a box (e.g. too, much) and complete seven gapped sentences. Then, they move on to another set of sentences and have to find and correct the mistakes in each of them. After having practised the quantifiers with countable and uncountable nouns in a controlled way, they are ready to practise them orally. They talk about problems faced by six famous cities in the world using too/too many/too much and (not) enough. The lesson finishes with another discussion about students’ cities and their problems, but this time students focus on possible solutions local people, as well as governments, could come up with to improve people’s lives there.
