Teaching practice 4
Practice the skill of speaking and the -ing verbs
Introduce new vocabulary and listening
Procedure (39-48 minutes)
I write on the board a list of my hobbies and I ask students which are theirs.Then I want them to share their ideas with a partner.They can do it through a game:one student draws an object related to one of his hobbies and his partner has to elicit it.
I introduce new vocabulary through exercise 1,p.58.Students have to match verbs in the box to the nouns.They can work in pairs and I check answers as a whole class.
Students work in pairs and tell each other which of the activities of exercise n 1 they do.(Exercise 2,p.58). I also provide examples of frequency adverbs and how to use them,in case they need to brush them up,so they can use them in their own sentences.
Students listen to a presentation about"the serious leisure perspective".Then they have to answer few questions related to the text (exercise 2,questions 1,4).They can do it in pairs. If time allows they can share their ideas on the text,if they agree or not,if they prefer casual or serious leisure activities.
The focus is on the -ing form verbs and how to use them.
Exercise 3,p.59 Students complete the sentences of the exercise with their own ideas using -ing verbs.They can practice immediately what they have learnt. Then they share their ideas with the partner.
