Main Aims

  • To present comparatives

Subsidiary Aims

  • Reading


Lead in (3-5 minutes) • To introduce the theme of the lesson

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

Checking of understanding (3-5 minutes) • To check that ss understand the concept of comparatives

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 ?

Examples (8-10 minutes) • To elicit examples from ss

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

Feedback (3-5 minutes) • To check if ss get the answers right.

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

Gap fill (5-8 minutes) • To do some practice about comparatives

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.
