TP 7A Gaziza Anarova
A2 level


In this lesson Ss will learn how to express reasons for their actions using to+infintives through text-based presentation of language. They will listen to two speakers, then they will discuss it. T will elicit answers which form TL. Ss will be presented a clarification of TL, followed by controlled practice. The lesson will continue by semi-controlled and freer speaking practice.

Main Aims

  • Grammar (Infinitives of purpose)

Subsidiary Aims

  • Listening for gist. Speaking for accuracy


Warmer/Lead-in (2-4 minutes) • To set lesson context and engage students

T shows pictures of a phone, a car, a computer, a credit card and a watch, then asks students why do they need the things on pictures. T quickly elicits a pattern for answers on WB: e.g. I use phone to call my friends. T asks Ss to come up with other ideas.

Listening (6-7 minutes) • To contextualise and provide a target language

T will tell students about the listening task and that they need to focus on main questions (T gives ex.3 task before listening) and plays the recording. Then Ss complete ex.3 on p. 107. T then asks Ss to work in pairs and discuss their answers. Then T checks answers as WC.

Highlighting (2-4 minutes) • To draw students' attention to the target language

T writes two small sentences on WB connected to listening:'She needed a credit card. She wanted to pay for meals at restaurant.' T answers how these two pieces of information can be given in one sentence. T gives CCQs to elicit the meaning.

Clarification (7-8 minutes) • To clarify the meaning, form and pronunciation of the target language

T clarifies pronunciation by backchaining and focusing on 'schwa' sound in these cases and marks intonation on WB. Then T will elicit the form; then T will write wrong sentences and asks them to correct the form. Then T will give grammar box and sentences on p.107 and asks them to underline the infinitives of purpose in the given sentences.

Controlled Practice (5-6 minutes) • To concept check and prepare students for more meaningful practice

T will give each student one half of one sentence and asks them to read and find the other student who has the other half. T will asks Ss to mingle so that they can easily find their partner. T then asks them to read their sentences and corrects if necessary.

Semi-Controlled Practice (6-7 minutes) • To concept check further and prepare students for free practice

T will give cut-up handouts A,B and asks them to work in pairs and complete the given patterns with their own ideas in a written form. T then asks Ss to mingle to check other S's answers. It follows by quick feedback and error correction.

Free Practice (7-9 minutes) • To provide students with free practice of the target language

T divides Ss into three small groups and gives different situations with pictures of things to choose and explain why they need them. T asks Ss to get only one thing and it shouldn't be the same as their partners'. It follows by discussion, feedback and error correction if needed.
