Lesson Plan TP 5 Elif Özsaraçoğlu
C1 level


In this lesson I will use PPP approach to teach causative form. First we will talk about some famous people and how comfortably they live because they don't have to do the daily things that normal people don't like doing. This way I will introduce them the context and later I will present them the target language. After a controlled practice, finally they will work in pairs and discuss the things that they would like to have done for them and they will find opportunity to develop their productive skills in a speaking for accuracy activity.

Drill the sentence changing the verb. "...gets her car washed, gets her nails done, gets her meal cooked..." Write one of the sentences on the board and highlight the form. This is the presentation stage Have /get sth + past participle.
