Intermediate level


In this lesson ss learn Second conditional through guided discovery. Ss will be given sentences that they will work on and discover the meaning and form. Pronunciation will be supplied by the teacher. Then ss will be given a controlled practice activity in which they unscramble the sentences. Then they will be given a semi-controlled activity. In this activity they will be given questions and they will answer these questions in PW. Finally if they have enough time left, they will be given a free activity. It is a PW activity in which they will complete half sentences using second conditional.

Exposure (3-5 minutes) • To provide context for the target language through a text or situation

-Give ss the cut-ups on which they will see the second conditional. -Ss match the sentences in pairs

Clarification (10-12 minutes) • To clarify the meaning, form and pronunciation of the target language

-Give ss the HO. Tell them to focus on the first part of the HO. -Ss look at the model sentences and fill in the part in the HO related to meaning in groups of 3 (minimum) -Tell ss compare their answers with other groups. -Tell ss to look at the next part in the HO. Ss focus on the form, they look at the modal sentences again and find out the form in their groups. -Ss check their answers with other groups. -Finally ss complete the part related to the difference between 1st conditional and 2nd conditional -Give ss the answer key. Tell them to check their answers and if they have any mistakes, discuss in their groups. -Show pronunciation and sentence stress on the board, drill the sentences.

Controlled Practice (8-10 minutes) • To concept check and prepare students for more meaningful practice

-Give ss the HO of unscrambled sentences. -Put ss into pairs and tell them to work in pairs and order the sentences. -Ss compare their answers with other pairs. -Give ss the answer key to check -Monitor and check if they need re-clarification

Semi-Controlled Practice (8-10 minutes) • To concept check further and prepare students for free practice

-Put ss into pairs. Give them the HO as student A and student B -Ss ask the questions in pairs and answer them. -When they have finished they change questions and ask questions again -Ask 2-3 students their answers to check understanding and give FB

Free Practice (8-10 minutes) • To provide students with free practice of the target language

-Put ss into pairs and give them cards on which half sentences are written -Each ss picks a card reads it and completes the sentence with his/her own words. -Monitor the ss take notes of errors and give FB about those errors when the activity is over.
