Writing a letter from holidays
To provide product writing practice of a letter in the context of travel
To provide review of future tenses in the context of travel
Procedure (48-59 minutes)
I will give pictures with different holidays activities and introductory questions: what type of activities do prefer? Why? Find out if your partner has the same or different opinion. For feedback, I will ask about their findings
After lead-in I will elicit how they can communicate with their friends when they are on holidays. Then I will present a letter. Ss will need to identify what is the purpose of each paragraph. Ss will read it and put crosses and ticks next to the things that she is going to do and not. And count how many things she is going and not going to do.
Context: imagine you won a tour to some warm Asian country. What are you going to do there? Try to think of some interesting activities. Speak to 5 people in order to find the person with the a) most interesting answer b) same answer as yours
Using the example of the last exercise we will observe the layout of such kind of a letter
Let's imagine a dream holiday. What would be your plans? Write a letter from holidays about future plans. After writing peer assessment - ss will read 3-4 letters and will chose the best one.
We will do final error-correction, summarise the lesson and then will move to the homework.
