Nationalities vocabulary
Beginner level


T will create an atmosphere on traveling to a number of countries (target vocabulary) by showing pictures of people from those countries in the beginning, then T drill pronunciation. After that, T start activity "travel to" as a semi controlled exercise followed by feedback. Then finish with "find someone" as a free practice activity.


Main Aims

  • To provide clarification, review and practice of countries and nationalities in the context of travel

Subsidiary Aims

  • To provide fluency and accuracy speaking practice in a conversation in the context of travel


Lead In (6-10 minutes) • To create an interest and activate schemata

- T asks who have traveled? and where? - T shows pictures of traditional activities or people in national costumes and elicit words from Ss - with each picture (depending on content) T ask: where is this? or who are those people? - if the Ss guess right, T show the next picture. - if the Ss can not guess, they check with partner to see what they think. - with each targeted word, T drill and ask CCQ

Building context (8-12 minutes) • To narrow the context to a more specific area and continue to generate interests

- T give Ss plane tickets and asks them to keep it faced down. - T explain the instructions, each student travel to his/her destination (Flags on the walls around the classroom) and explain that this is his/her home country

Practice (12-16 minutes) • To provide controlled oral practice focused on using the target language accurately

- T demonstrate the task, then asks ICQ to make sure they understand the task - T monitors Ss and check if they are struggling with anything - T instructs Ss to check in pairs and ask each other: where are you from? other S will respond: I am from "country", I'm "nationality" - T asks Ss who are "at their destination" what language do you speak? which will activate schemata about languages in each country and keep generating interest and engagement

Teach (clarify) (7-12 minutes) • To clarify issues with learners had with meaning, form, pronunciation

- T mark the form on the WB: where are you from? I'm from Turkey what's your nationality? I'm Turkish Are you Turkish? Yes, I am No, I'm German - T drill and use CCQ to make sure Ss understand what they are saying - T clarify any of the issues that learners had with meaning, form, and pronunciation (if any)

Practice 2 (10-12 minutes) • To provide freer oral practice focused on using the target language more fluently

- T give Ss random nationalities, and asks not to show to each other. - T give "fine someone" paper to each student, and instruct students to only ask one question at a time and the other student answers once, then they will move on to the next S and so on. - Ss will complete the task by writing the name of the person they found that matches what they want on their list (find someone) - T monitors without interfering and answer any questions if any.
