In this lesson, Ss will practice quantifiers (some and any) in the context of shopping. They will do several grammar exercises and practice conversation in a shop during the role-play.


Main Aims

  • To provide practice of quantifiers (some and any) in the context of shopping

Subsidiary Aims

  • To provide fluency speaking practice in a conversation in the context of shopping


Warmer/Lead-in (3-5 minutes) • To set lesson context and engage students

Ss will be split into 2 groups, each group will stand in a line. T will speak out phrases, in turn to each group, and Ss will repeat: - I want to do some shopping. - I need some money. (T shows a bundle of banknotes) - How much money have I got?? - I've got some hundreds. - But I haven't got any 50s. - I want to buy some clothes. - I don't need any shoes. - Do I need any candlesticks? - No, I don't need any. - Do I want to get some books? - Maybe, some. - Also, I'd like to buy some food. - After all, I will have a lot of bags. - And I will need some help. - Could you give me some help? - Sorry, I can't, I haven't got any time. - Now I feel I somewhat tired.

Test #1 (8-10 minutes) • To gauge students' prior knowledge of the target language

The words will be stuck to the WB (words are taken from the WorkBook, p.39, ex.3). Ss will keep working in two groups, they are standing. The will have to pick up words, one group will have to choose only countable nouns, another - uncountable. Then Ss will receive handouts separately - for the 'countable' and 'uncountable' groups (WorkBook,p.39, ex.4). Before starting the ex, T will show the example sentence. Ss will have 2 min to complete their excercises, then they exchange answers with another group. They can correct each other.

Teach (10-12 minutes) • To clarify areas of the target language where students had difficulty in the first test stage

Ss will sit down. They will receive one more hand out - ex.1 (S's book, p.67). Ss will work individually for max. 2 min. ICQ: - do you work alone? (yes) - how much time do you have? (2 min) Check WC. Ss will be split into 3 groups. Each group will do the same ex. Then 2 representatives from each groups will go to another groups to check the answers. Ex. Fill in the gap (Students Book, p.138) 1. I need to buy (some) apples. 2. I don't need to buy (any) apples. 3. I'd like (an) apple, please. 4. I don't like (...) apples. 5. We have to get (some) milk. 6. Can you give me (some) help? 7. We haven't got (any) tea. 8. Do you need (any) help? Ss will answer CCQ to check their answers: - can we use S/A with plural countable nouns? (yes) - can we use S/A with singular countable nouns? (no) what should we use? (a/an) - can we use S/A with uncountable nouns? (yes) - can we use Some in questions? (yes, offer) - can we use Any in questions? (yes, in general) - can we use Some in negative sentences? (no, we use Any)

Test #2 (5-7 minutes) • Check students' use of the target language again and compare with the first test

Ss will do ex.2 parts A and C (Students book, p.67). Time limit - 7 mins\ pairwork. T will be monitoring and correcting mistakes during the conversations.

Free practice (13-15 minutes) • To provide students with free practice of the target language

The class is devided into 2 groups: 5 "stallholders" and the other are "customers". Stallholders will receive small pictures with the names of different goods: shoes, rugs and chairs, candlesticks, jacket, dress, fruit, soap (a bar of soap), shampoo, eggs, milk, paint, wine, bread. Customers will receive a list of goods to buy (different) and amount of money. The task is written on the board: - ask questions to find out if your products are in this shop (use some/any) - talk about the price (use some/any)

If-Time activity / Freer practice (3-5 minutes) • To provide Ss with an additional opportunity to practice grammar

T will hand out two exercises, Ss will be working in pairs. (Teacher's Book, p.138). T will be monitoring. The answers will be written on WB
