Deren Dogan TP-5
To provide clarification and practice of real conditionals in the context of city life
To provide gist reading practice using a text about Amsterdam in the context of city life
Procedure (33-49 minutes)
1. Ss will see pictures related to Amsterdam. 2. They will be asked to give answers to: Do you know where these places are? (From Amsterdam, In Netherlands) Have you been to Amsterdam? Dou you know the places in the pictures? (Van Gogh Museum, Keukenhof Gardens, Anne Frank house) What else do you know about Amsterdam? (Bikes, canals, nightlife, tulips...)
1. Ss will read the online entry page. 2. They will be asked: Which place would you like to visit? Why? (in groups) 3. Ss will be asked to summarise the basic information about each place. (WC) The Van Gogh Museum: It has 200 painting. You need to wait for a long time to get in. Keukenhof Museum: The biggest flower garden in the world. It is an hour from the city. Anne Frank House: Where she wrote her diaries. Her family hid there from the Nazis.
1. Ss will look at the reading text and asked to underline conditionals (if clauses). 2. Then, they will give their answers. 3. Write the sentences on the board. If you are interested in art, you'll love the Van Gogh Museum. If you visit at the right time, you'll see more than seven million flowers! If you visit in the summer, you should go to the house in the early evening.
1. The meaning of the real conditional will be elicited from the Ss. 2. Show the model sentences on the board, ask: What do you think about these sentences? Do you know why do we use them? Is the first sentence used to make suggestion? (yes) e.g. If you visit in the summer, you should go to the house in the early evening. What about next one? (giving information/giving advice) When can we use conditionals? If we want to make suggestions, To give advice, To recommend something, To give information, To give permission, To make a promise. 3.CCQs: e.g. If you visit at the right time (Keukenhof Gardens), you’ll see more than seven million flowers! (giving information) Are you going to visit the gardens? (Maybe) Will you definitely visit the gardens? (No) Is it possible for you to visit the gardens, is there a chance? (Yes) e.g. If you are interested in art, you’ll love the Van Gogh Museum. Do you interested in art? (Maybe) Is it possible for you to be interested in art? (Yes) Will I like the museum if I am interested in art? (Yes) e.g. If you visit in the summer (Anne Frank’s House), you should go to the house in the early evening. The queue to get in is not so long. Are you going to visit the Anne Frank’s house? (Maybe) Is it possible for you to visit the house? (Yes) Is there a long line in the morning? (No) What can you do to avoid the line? (Go in the early evening) 4. Ss will drill the pronunciation of the model sentences. Pronunciation of real conditionals is the same as in other sentences. We usually stress verbs and nouns, but not modal verbs or prepositions. 5. They will be presented with the form. 6. Ss will have a handout about covering clarification stage
In this stage, Ss will receive a handout with 3 controlled activities. 1. First, Ss will engage in a quick gap-fill activity. It will be done individually, then checked with groups. Answers will be on the board. (1 min.) 2. Then, Ss will match the if-clause sentences with the relevant main clauses. Individual work, peer correction. WCF (5min.) 3. Finally, they will circle the correct forms to complete the sentences in the last exercise. Group work, WCF. (3 min.)
1. Ss will write recommendations for visitors to their country. They will see if-clause sentences and add the main clause to the sentences. (2 min.) 2. They will compare their sentences with their groups. (2 min.)
1. Ss will be asked to look at their peer's recommendations. 2. They will be asked: Which ones would you like to try? Do you agree with their recommendations, or Do you have any other suggestions? 3. They will discuss in their groups.
