Teaching practice 1
Elementary A1 level


This lesson develops the use of the target language from the previous lesson by adding the question form. It also allows for further focus on form by practising the questions in a personal context – using personal pronouns “I” and “you” – and in the third person singular.


Main Aims

  • To introduce and give practice in “have/has got” yes/no questions & short ans through the context of talking about personal possession.

Subsidiary Aims

  • To give Ss practice in speaking for accuracy and fluency.


Warmer/Lead-in extension of form (from previous lesson) (7-10 minutes) • controlled oral practice to focus on accuracy of form and pronunciation

Refer back to the previous lesson & elicit some of the questions they heard on the listening, e.g. Have you got a computer? Give Ss ex 10 & get them to work together to fill in the gaps. Take w/c FB. Give Ss some open class practice of the TL – asking & answering different questions – do this by prompting with an item, e.g. a radio - & showing which 2 Ss should ask & ans – Have you got a radio? Yes, I have. / No, I haven’t.

Controlled Practice (8-10 minutes) • To focus on form

WkBk ex 5 - Ss work together to rewrite the questions in a). Take w/c FB. Then refer Ss back to the chart from the previous lesson (WkBk ex 4) & get Ss to ask the qus & ans them - & write the short ans in b). Give an ans key or check ans by getting Ss to ask & ans the qus open class.

Controlled Practice (10-13 minutes) • To focus on third person singular

Elicit the word “twins” & ask if twins have usually got the same things. Set up a pw activity for Ts Bk p 140. Introduce the characters & make sure they know how to pronounce the names, & that they know Harry is a boy, & Harriet is a girl – so whether to ask he/she questions. Explain how many differences there are (see instructions in the T’s bk) & demo the activity. Ss work together to ask & ans questions. Monitor. Get FB on what different items the twins have got – encourage Ss to make sentences such as, Harriet’s got a diary, but Harry hasn’t.

Controlled Practice (8-10 minutes) • Personalisation

Demo how to do a Find Someone Who activity. Give Ss either the HO from pp 105 or 113 (split around the class approx 50/50). Ss mingle and ask each other “Have you got a …?” . Monitor for good use of the TL & to check Ss are speaking to more than 1 person, & redirect where appropriate (but don’t get too involved). When some have finished – or time’s up – get all Ss to sit down & take some general FB – e.g. Who’s got a computer?
