Teaching Practice 3 - For TP 3b
B2 level


Students will use the context of the previous lesson (Air travel) to learn and practice the grammar structures of So, So many/much, Such and Such as. After learning, a controlled gap fill activity will be used to increase understanding and after a freer practice task will take place. The grammar structure will then be used in a production task (speaking) at the end before final feedback.

Main Aims

  • Grammar - For students to learn and practice the used of So and Such using controlled, freer practice and speaking.

Subsidiary Aims

  • Speaking - Students will be able to use the learned grammar in a freer speaking activity
  • Writing- Students will be able to use the learned vocabulary in a freer writing task


Lead-in (2-3 minutes) • To remind students of the context of the previous and current lesson.

Ss will be asked questions about the stories they heard in the previous class. The relevant vocabulary will be written on the board using elicitation. Relevant questions will be asked for example, Do you like flying in airplanes? What do you think of airports. etc.

Language Clarification (8-10 minutes) • To introduce the grammar topic of So and Such.

Students will be put in pairs and told to think of adjectives that are relevant to Air travel (e.g. Fast, slow, long, tired, exited etc). A projection of the language forms will the then be projected on the white board. One person from each pair will be asked to write one or two words for the first sentence structure (So + Ajective). The pairs will then be asked to talk about relevant words to follow the other So / Such examples (e.g. So much/many + noun). Mistakes will be corrected and CCQs will be asked to assure understanding.

Controlled Practice (5-7 minutes) • To allow students to practice the learned language.

Students will change pairs by naming individuals as 'so amazing' or 'so fantastic'. Chesting will be used to explain the gap fill activity (Activity 3b pg 25). They will work individually to fill in the gaps. When the students are finished they will check their answers with their partner and each pair will write one of the answers on the board (they will be told which question to answer). Mistakes will be corrected and explained using CCQs.

Freer practice (writing) (8-12 minutes) • To allow students to practice the learned vocabulary in a creative way.

Students will change pairs once again and the will be reminded of the previous vocabulary using CCQs. It will be explained to them that they will now create their own full sentences using the learned grammar. They will have to write a short paragraph about a holiday memory of their choice. The language forms and relevant vocabulary will be projected back onto the board for reference. Students will then turn over their paper and tell their partner their story. Common mistakes will be listened for and corrected.

Speaking practice (8-12 minutes) • For students to use the learned vocabulary in a natural way.

Students will be given either a green or orange prompt card. They will be asked to stand up, mingle and find someone with the other colored prompt card. They will then ask each other the questions on the cards using the language structure which they can refer to on the white board. Student will switch cards after a minute or so and find a new partner. Any speaking mistakes will be written on the board during the activity and students will correct them using CCQs and peer review.

Optional practice activity. (4-6 minutes) • To allow students to confirm their understanding using a multiple choice task.

Ask students to sit with the last partner they were speaking to in the previous activity. Tell them they will see a sentences projected on the board which they must complete using the correct grammar. Each pair will be given a different colored pen to complete the task. Any Final mistakes will be corrected using peer review and CCQs.
