Main Aims

  • By the end of the lesson, students will have practised semi-controlled speaking in the context of daily lives.

Subsidiary Aims

  • Students will practise the Present Simple using I/we/you/they, develop their knowledge of verb/noun collocations and adverbs of frequency.


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

Link the lesson to the previous one and ask for feedback if the previous teacher didn't have the time to go through it with the students.

Pre-activity (5 minutes) • To elicit TL

Read out the routine text from Resource Book page 24 to the class substituting a sound for the verbs in brackets. Pause after each phrase for students to suggest an appropriate verb. Get the students to make the sentences true for them by adding an adverb of frequency eg I never go to the gym.

Procedure (25 minutes) • To check students' use of TL

Explain the rules to the students. Set the classroom for the board game. Divide students into pairs, A and B and give each pair a copy of the worksheet. Encourage students to ask a follow-up question for each sentence. Monitor the students while they play and provide help if necessary. Make a note of any error. Do error correction: write 5 of the worst mistakes without identifying who wrote them and ask the students to try to correct them. Give them a couple of minutes to think in pairs, then check all together. Have a feedback session. Call out a phrase, and students call out the verb which goes with it.

Flexi-stage (12 minutes) • To provide students with free practice of the TL

Students write a paragraph describing a perfect day. Go around helping with vocabulary if necessary. Ask students to exchange paragraphs with a partner. Students check their partner's work and correct any mistake.
