This is a vocabulary based lesson using the vocab set of clothes. The vocabulary will be introduced and practice will be given for meaning, pronunciation and form. Singulars and plurals will be practiced using a review of Some, Any and A. Controlled practice will help with understanding and speaking practice will be used to allow students to use the new vocabulary using natural dialogues.

Main Aims

  • To provide clarification of meaning, form and pronunciation and practice new vocabulary related to clothing.

Subsidiary Aims

  • To provide speaking practice and increase fluency and accuracy of the introduced vocabulary.


Warmer (2-4 minutes) • To set the context of clothes and to create a positive atmosphere.

Remind students of previous lessons by asking them what they buy from super markets, news agents etc. Then ask where they buy clothes. Use the OHP to project pictures of extreme fashion on the board. Ask students if they think they look good or bad. Ask Ss if they would ever buy and wear these clothes.

Vocab Matching activity. (5-7 minutes) • To introduce the vocab using guided discovery.

Put the students into three groups. Project the slide of the clothes line with several types of clothes onto the board. Explain to the students that each group will receive a different set of words each. Each group must work together to decide which word goes with which picture. CCQs will be used to made sure meaning and form (see vocab analysis) is understood and drilling will be used for pronunciation.

Controlled Speaking (4-6 minutes) • To allow students to practice speaking the new Vocab in a controlled task.

Put the Ss into pairs. Explain the handout they will receive contains six pictures of people. Three of the people will have names, three wont. Their partner will have the three missing names on their handout. Model the task through speaking and write on the board the types of sentences they must say to find the names. I.e. ''He is wearing a jeans and a T-shirt'' the other student can then reply ''Tom''. Monitor and listen for mistakes. After the task, have partners pair check to make sure they have the correct answers.

Semi controlled speaking. (4-6 minutes) • To allow students to use the vocab using more personal language.

Put usually, sometimes and never on the board. Have the students rank them in order. Then write the words 'I' before each word and 'wear' after each word. E.g. I Usually wear.....). Model some examples (I usually wear a T-shirt, I never wear a dress). Tell the students they tell their partner about what they wear and don't wear. After, Ss will stand up and talk to as many other students as possible about the same topic (Mingle). Give feedback on MFP.

Plural nouns practice. (4-6 minutes) • To allow students to understand the use of plural nouns related to clothes.

Put students into three groups and give them a different coloured board pen. Tell them they will see some words on the board, some are different from other. Tell them to circle the words that are one item (not 2). Project the words Jeans, Shoes, Socks, Shorts, Boots, Trousers and Trainers on the board. Correct any mistakes and increase understanding using examples. In the same groups, tell the Ss they will see some sentences which need to be completed by circling the correct option. Click to the next slide. Have the groups talk about the sentences then circle what they think is true. Correct any mistakes. As the pens are of different colour, if a group makes a mistake, ask a group who got it correct why they chose their answer.

Some, any or a Gap-fill review. (4-6 minutes) • To give student practice integrating the new vocabulary with previously taught TL.

Tell students they will work individually. Explain the handout using chesting and model the first sentence. The students must fill in the gap of each sentence with some, any or a, depending on the noun in the sentence. Have students check their answers and elicit the answers from the students to fill in the gaps on the board for further understanding.

Semi controlled speaking practice. (4-6 minutes) • To allow students to use the vocab and the reviewed TL through speaking.

Put the Ss in pairs. Ask them to talk about which of the sentences (the gap fill sentences) are true for them. Monitor to students and listen for any mistakes. Correct using CCQs. Then switch to groups and repeat.

Optional final practice. (4-6 minutes) • Correct the sentences on the board.

Put the students into three groups. Tell them they will see some sentences which need correcting related to plural and singular nouns. Have the students correct them on the board. If there are any mistakes use CCQs to make sure they understand the form.
