Main Aims

  • To provide clarification, review and practice of Pet peeves and all vocabulary related to them in the context of Annoyances

Subsidiary Aims

  • To provide accuracy speaking practice in a Conversation, acting in the context of Annoyances


Warmer/Lead-in (5-10 minutes) • To set lesson context and engage students

This is a conversation club and do not have consistent staff so we will do a self introduction first as a warmer so that people get acquainted with each other. Ss will stand in a circle and introduce themselves by saying their firs names only. Then we will do a chain-introduction and lastly we will do the ball-introduction.

Exposure (8-10 minutes) • To provide context for the target language through a text or situation

I will pretend to draw out phlegm and spit it out and observe the Ss reactions. I will then ask them if they like the act or not and how they feel if someone does it in front of them.

Highlighting (2-4 minutes) • To draw students' attention to the target language

I will ask them to discuss in pairs their minor annoyances or things that other people do that they find annoying.

Clarification (8-10 minutes) • To clarify the meaning, form and pronunciation of the target language

I will ask a few Ss from different nationalities to come and write on the WB what term is used to call the things they have been discussing in their native languages. Then I will tell them that in English they are called pet peeves. I will drill this phrasal verb individually and as a whole class till everyone get the pronunciation correct. I will get them to elicit the meaning in English. After that I will write it on the board together with the phonemic symbols and drill again. I will pre teach some vocabulary by demonstrating chew, borrowing, drumming, uppercase,repeating everything one says as a question, cologne, break eye contact, make eye contact.

Controlled Practice (8-10 minutes) • To concept check and prepare students for more meaningful practice

Ss will arrange SS in 3 groups and ask them to discuss on the HO about what they think is the annoying character and what isn't.

Semi-Controlled Practice (8-10 minutes) • To concept check further and prepare students for free practice

Will divide the class into 2 teams and make them take turns to act out their pet peeves. The other team has to guess what is that pet peeve. A group that guesses correctly gets a point. Each Ss should get a chance to act.

Free Practice (8-10 minutes) • To provide students with free practice of the target language

T will put different flashcards inside a box and all students takes turns to come upfront, randomly pick any paper and talk about the question which is there. If the Ss finishes other SS are free to agree or add on on what that S has just said. T notes any mistakes for later correction.
