A2/B1 (Pre-Intermediate) level


In this lesson, students learn new vocabulary that has to do with housework, as well as the collocations "do" and "make" through guided discovery. The lesson starts with a quick warmer, where the students find the phrases that are connected to the housework. This is followed by exercises where students work in groups match the pictures with the phrases. Then there is another similar exercise to select the "do" or "make". After that the teacher does some clarification if needed before the semi-controlled exercise, where the students have to fill in the gaps with a correct verb. The last stage is a free practice, in which the students talk to each other in pairs and answer the questions which are written on the board.
