TP4-Lesson 4-Friday 28/10/2016 - Companions
Upper Intermediate level
To provide clarification on past habits grammar structures "used to" and "would" in context of pets and their owners
To provide gist reading practice to the students in order to understand the text in the best way
Procedure (28-44 minutes)
I stick some pictures on the board, which represent people with pets. I ask students to talk about their pet or pet on the picture if they don't have their own between each other. Before they start, I demo the exercise by pointing at the picture and describing what I think the relationship between pet and a pet is on that image.
Give learners a text  on a separate piece of paper and ask them to read it for themselves and find out what our character liked doing with his dogs. After that, in pairs ask students discuss what they found out.
