Pre-int. A2 level
To present comparatives
Procedure (33-50 minutes)
I show pictures of two people or cars on the projector and elicit from ss the differences between them. The differences have to be very clear so that they can easily be spotted by ss
Here I ask them some CCQs. For example. In comparatives, do we say the differences between two people or more than two ? Does the comparative say two people or things are same or different ?
SS look through the text and say the example sentences in the dark prints. At this point I write all their sentences on the board and elicit the form of the target language from them. I also do some drilling. SS work in pairs and complete exercise 5a and b on page 47
This is a whole-class feedback activity
I ask SS to look at the text again and elicit the forms from them. I also draw pictures on the on the board that show big and small differences
SS read and complete the text with the correct form of the adjectives in part 7 on page 47. After that they compare their answers with their partners.
SS compare Istanbul and their home towns or their previous and current jobs etc.
