In this lesson the students start with an activity to practise modal verbs for rules and sports terms by means of a gapfill where they ask and answer questions in pairs. They then work together to guess which sport it is. The students are then introduced to the verbs like -ing / 'd like by means of a listening text. This is followd by controlled practice where the students make sentences using picture prompts and then a speaking exercise to give them some freer practice.
