In this lesson, the students learn Present Simple and Present Continuous through guided discovery based on a reading text about a man in the context of Activities of daily life. The lesson starts with a discussion on the routine activities the students do every day. This is followed by reading two materials that focus on the target language. After clarification, the students practice the concept through controlled and semi controlled practice. If time allows, the students also do a freer practice task in groups.
