Main Aims

  • To provide a fluent speaking practice in a conversation with the context of predictions about the environment.

Subsidiary Aims

  • To provide practice of future perfect and future continuous in the context of predictions about the environment.


Warmer/Lead-in (3-5 minutes) • To set lesson context and engage students

To get the students interest, the words definitely, likely, probably and unlikely will be stuck to the WB. One student will be asked (with the help of the classroom) to arrange the words in the correct order from most certain to uncertain. Sentences using these words will be written on the board to provide context.

Lead in 2 (5-8 minutes) • To further engage Ss,reinforce and practice what the Ss have learned so far.

Definitely, probably, likely and unlikely will be pasted around the room. Students will stand up out of their seats. I will make predictions based on the text in the previous lesson. Ss will run to which word they think best describes what they think will happen in the future.

Useful Language (15-20 minutes) • To highlight and clarify useful language for the productive task.

Ss will work in pairs and discuss with their partner whether or not a list of predictions on a HO will happen or not happen and explain why. T will monitor and provide FB as well as drill Ss for pronunciation.

Productive Task (18-20 minutes) • To provide an opportunity to practice target productive skills

Ss will work in pairs, be given a HO and asked to discuss each prediction on the sheet a) If they think it will happen and b) if you think it will be a good thing. T will monitor with a note pad and write down any mistakes Ss are making and provide delayed error correction. If time Ss will then be given a freer(r) exercise to make there own predictions in groups and then their peers reply whether they think it will happen or not.
