Main Aims

  • To provide practice of I wish+would in the context of annoying habits.

Subsidiary Aims

  • To provide fluency speaking practice in a conversation in the context of annoying habbits.


Warmer/Lead-in (5-7 minutes) • To set lesson context and engage students

T will introduce the topic annoying habits with a twitter thread filled with tweets about things that annoy them. T will hand out the twitter thread to the students and ask them to put a tick next to the ones that annoy them too. T will then pair up the students, have them compare their choices and then decide on the top 3. T will ask which ones they have chosen and why.

Language clarification (10-15 minutes) • To clarify I wish+would

T will use a PPT to introduce and clarify the structures after wish, which are I wish + would / wouldn't. T will clarify the meaning and the form of using I wish + would by providing the students with adequate examples. T will then hand out an activity where the students will use wish + would in the sentences T the students will check answers in pairs. T will nominate 4 students to share their answers.

Controlled practice (10-15 minutes) • To clarify and practice the language

T will put the students into pairs, by giving them a number. The students will then find their partner who has the same number. T will give out an activity to each pair, where they have to match the sentences. For example; students will match "It annoys me that you don't put away your clothes." with "I wish you would put away your clothes." Once the students have finished matching their sentences, T will ask them to check the other pairs sentences to see if they all matched the sentences correctly. T will ask the students if everyone has got the correct sentences matched.

Freer practice (10-12 minutes) • To provide an opportunity to practice productive skills

T will pair up the students and hand out a blank piece of paper to each pair. T will ask the students in pairs to write 3 more things that annoy them and that they would like people to change, so we can add to the twitter thread. Once the students have finished writing they will hang their paper on the white board or on the wall. The students will then walk around and read the tweets that are hung. T will ask the students if there were any interesting things written that people get annoyed from.
