Warmer/Lead-in (2-3 minutes) • To set lesson context and engage students

The teacher will come into the classroom with a Barcelona T-shirt and a banner around her neck, after greeting she will ask the if they have ever been to a stadium to watch a football match, and whether they remember when was their first time in the stadium or not? for 2 minutes they will talk in pairs and then some of them will give a short quick report about her/his partner to the whole class.

Exposure (4-6 minutes) • To provide context for the target language through a reading text

The teacher will have the handout on her chest and explain that the Ss are going to read the text quickly and answer the two given questions on the HO. Then she will give the HOs and after about 2 or 3 minutes the teacher ask the students to have a pair check and then nominate some to give a whole class feedback.

Guiding Ss to discover the meaning of the grammar in reading text (7-9 minutes) • To draw students' attention to the target language in order to elicit the TL

The teacher first gives the task and then the HO. The task is in pairs answer these questions through looking back at the previous reading text. Through this HO students will discover the meaning and the teacher will elicit it. Then there will be a feedback in the whole class by nominating some students and asking for the reason of their answers.

Eliciting the form of the grammar (2-3 minutes) • To elicit the form of the target language

The teacher will show Ss a HO and instruct them to fill in the blanks in pairs. For the feedback she will project the HO on the board and 3 students will come at the same time and complete the blanks on the board.

Drilling the Pronunciation (2-3 minutes) • To provide students with opportunity to pronunce the TL correctly and naturally

The teacher will project a model sentence with "be going to" and "will" on the board and draw the students' attention to weak pronunciation of to /tÉ™/ and contracted form of will,esp. I'll and It'll. she will do some drilling and if needed back chaining.

Controlled Practice (8-9 minutes) • To concept check and prepare students for more meaningful practice

The teacher will give Ss names of Turkish football teams, Beshiktash, Fenerbahche, and Galatasaray to put the Ss in groups and then give them instruction about the HO. They will complete the blanks with the correct form of future and the given verb in their groups and think about the reason of their answers. Then to save some time the teacher will give them the answer key and do the WC feedback only for the part of their reasons by nominating some Ss.

Freer Practice (8-9 minutes) • To provide students with free practice of the target language

The teacher will tell Ss that she will give them some cards with a topic and they are going to stand up and speak to as many partners as possible and tell him/ her a short talk about their topic.They should be careful about the future form that they use. The teacher will give an example herself. For example if on the card is written the plans for your career. You may give this talk that " I am going to find a new job, I am having an interview on the 8th of August, The meeting starts at 10:00 A.M.I will go by taxi. AS they are speaking the teacher will monitor them and record some of the positive and some of their errors to correct them at the end as a FB.

Delayed Error Correction (2-3 minutes) • To show awareness of their errors and give them a feedback

The teacher will state that there were a lot of nice chats in the groups for example.... She will give some of the good sentences of them and then draw their attentions to some of the errors and correct them on the board by their help.
