Main Aims

  • To provide practice of transport in the context of travel
  • To provide clarification of transport in the context of travel

Subsidiary Aims

  • To provide accuracy speaking practice in a dialogue in the context of travel


Lead In/ Warm up: Match pictures with words. (5-10 minutes) • To elicit words for the means of transport and set the context of travel

Students are given photos of different means of transport and the words to match with the pictures. T speaks about the difference between words like: a motorbike/ a motorcycle, an aeroplane/a plane, a scooter/ a motorbike, an underground train/ a subway train, and a bıcycle/ a bike. T drills the words. T points to all the pictures and drills the word 'transport.' Writes it on the WB.

Categorising the words (5-8 minutes) • To have students distinguish between different types of means of transport

Students are given handouts with three different categories of transport: air, land, water. They look at the matched vocabulary from the previous exercise and decide where to write each word. They use the vocabulary they put on the walls in the previous activity. Ss compare their answers.

Listening: Recognising the means of transport (5-7 minutes) • To listen in order to recognize the practised vocabulary.

T plays a YouTube vide on OHP. Ss guess which sound belongs to which means of transportation.

Cline: Ordering the words (6-10 minutes) • To reinforce vocabulary

Students are given a cline where the bottom represents the slowest and the top the fastest transport. Students write their own guesses in groups. They compare answers with other groups.

Questionnaire: How do you...? • To have students properly use prepositions 'by' and 'on'

Teacher demonstrates the use of 'by' and 'on' by writing examples on the WB: by train, by bus, by boat, on foot, etc. Teacher gives students a questionnaire. They mingle and ask each ther questions.

Contingency plan: Dialogue (10-12 minutes) • To have students ask and answer for the best ways of getting from one place to another
