Procedure (45-60 minutes)
Introduce yourself in English and talk about yourself a little.
Explain the usage of present simple through the usage of introduction. write on the board information similar to the hand-out. Talk about the structure of the sentence in english (SUBJ + VERB). For now we are only working with the singular pronoum.
Make a list of verbs of commom activities students do on their daily routine. Translate together and write on the board. Make them repeat those verbs and then start a chain where all students say something they like to do, encourage them to not repeat the verbs.
Ask students to complete the handouts about themselves and then introduce to the class individually.
Now working in pairs ask them to complete a second handout about another student but DO NOT fill the name gap.
Change the pairs and now ask students to introduce themselves freely without the help of the handouts. If they are confortables ask them to add more information.
If you still have time and depending on the class, after changing pairs at least once, ask students to say information about others. Pointing at other students and saying information about them. For that briefly explain the usage of third person in the present simple.
