Lead-in (3-5 minutes) • To set lesson context and engage students

I will ask the Ss different questions about football and ask them if they have ever gone to a stadium to watch matches or not. (Questions: Do you like football? / Have you ever watched a football match at a stadium? / When was your first time watching a football match at a stadium? / How old were you? / Were you excited about it? )

Test #1 (8-10 minutes) • To gauge students' prior knowledge of the target language

Ss will start working on the reading part on HO1 and try to choose the best future form for its context. Then, they will check their answers in pairs then i will do a WC feedback to check answers and provide them with the right ones.

Teach (18-20 minutes) • To clarify areas of the target language where students had difficulty in the first test stage

I will give them the Guided Discovery HO and ask them to fold it in order tho see the Meaning part only. Ss will work in pairs and try to answer the questions with their partners and after a while I will stop them and do a WC feedback. I will ask if they have any questions about that part then tell them to unfold the paper and work on the Function part in pairs. then, I will do a WC feedback and Ss should try to complete the forms with their partners. After a couple of minutes i will give them the answers as a HO to check their answers with their partners. At the end, will write a sentence from the dialogue on the WB and drill it.

Test #2 (8-10 minutes) • Check students' use of the target language again and compare with the first test

I will give them HO4 which is an exercise from the course book. they will answer to that individually and then check it in pairs. Then i will give them the answer key for the exercise to check their answers.

Free practice (8-10 minutes) • To provide students with free practice of the target language

I will give them a list of different ideas for planing. and they have to choose two of them and prepare a short talk on each. After their practicing in pairs I will do some open pair feedback with volunteers.
