TP6 - Going Out
A1 level


In this lesson, ss will learn how to use "can/can't" in the context of going out. The ss will be introduced to the target language through a listening task. After the exercise, there will be a clarification through guided discovery. This is followed by language practice exercises. Finally they will be focused on their productive skill development by speaking for accuracy and fluency via a role play conversation.
