Upper Intermediate B2 level


In this lesson, the Ss will learn conditional clauses in 'dreams and reality' context through guided discovery. They will read a text about the listening they had a session ago, and will make some guesses to discover the target language meaning and form. They will do some controlled, semi controlled, and free practice on the TL. Then we will have a matching activity and in the last stage we have a speaking activity.
