In this lesson SS will learn and pracitce the use of Neither/nor, So.In this lesson, ss will be practicing sentences by agreeing or disagreeing to the sentences.First they will listen to the story which the teacher says then they will do the first activity on SB page 39. I will end the story by telling them the 2 characters were trying to get to know each other and they started talking about these sentences and decided if thy had somethings in common.(pee check/ FB)This is followed by an activity where teacher elicits sentences from ss and showing MFPA. Next, students will become even more familiar with the topic and they will do activity 3 in small groups of 3 ss in each group. I will be monitoring and giving delayed FB. After they finish the 3rd task they will write a short story about the characters as a group after I hang the phrases again. I will hang them around the class so each group could go and red them. Finally, I will read a poem of the two characters and try to gt some more phrases from them. We will talk about the poem and I will show them the video. Ask them If they had expected the video to be like this and see if anyone has a similar story.


Main Aims

  • To provide practice of language used for agreeing or disagreeing sentences in the context of meeting at a holiday

Subsidiary Aims

  • To provide process writing practice of a story in the context of two people meeting eachother on holiday
  • To provide gist listening practice using a text about left on the shelf in the context of love


Warmer/Lead-in (3-7 minutes) • To set lesson context and engage students

Hang some phrases and tell them you will be telling a story about two characters who just met eachother. Ask them what the story might be about and ask them why ? Then start telling a story. They have to learn about each other so they start chatting so tell them to look at the sentences on page 39 and see what they agreed on or not.

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

I will put them in groups and give them the handout and see what they know about neither/nor, so. SS will read the sentences and find the appropriate agreement positive or negative of the sentences. Then I will tell them to check with another group by changing some ss places for them to check their answers. Then I will hang the answer key and check their answers. A FB will be given.

Teach (7-9 minutes) • To clarify areas of the target language where students had difficulty in the first test stage

After the ss do the activity I will write some sentences which they had problems on more and elicit the agreement from the students. I will make sure that they understand the inversion of agreement or disagreement by emphasizing the auxiliary verb or verb coming after Neither or So. If needed extra two or three sentences with different examples will be eliciited from SS if not teacher will write some examples. Similarities on the board and differences on the other side. Similarities ex: Dan went to Paris last year. (positive agreement) So did I /səʊ/ CCQS Did Dan go to London last year? NO Did he go to Paris? yes Did I go to Paris too? Yes. So did we both go to the same place? Yes Did I agree or disagree? Agree So/ neither an auxiliary verb+subject ex: Suzzie can't drive. Neither can I /ˈnaɪ.ðər/ ask ss how we can agree on the sentence in another way. Me,neither for negative sentences. CCQS Can Suzzy drive? No Can I drive? No Have got similarities? Yes ex:I am very busy at the moment. So am I. or Me,too can be used for positive sentences. General elicit ask ss when we use so and neither. Highlight the verb and neither or so.

Test #2 (8-10 minutes) • Check students' use of the target language again and compare with the first test

SS will do activity 3 which isa about responding to the sentences. I will put them in a group of three and they will take turns to respond to the sentences. The first ss will say I like hiphop and rap music and the 2nd ss will respond as I don't. and 3rd ss will say neither do I. This will go on till ss finish their activity

Free practice (12-22 minutes) • To provide students with free practice of the target language

Put the words on the board again and tell ss to write an end for the story for the two characters. Read a poem about the two characters and as a group they will write an end and hang them around the class. Tell ss to go and read the story and ask if any groups have a similar one. Then put the rest of the words and start reading. You can try to get some of the phrases from the students. Ask if it is a happy ending or sad. Ask what happened then show the video to them. If enough time Tell ss to write 2 positive and 2 negative sentences about their life what they can do, they can not do or what they like or don't like. Tell ss to go around the class and tell their sentences and note down who agrees or doesn't agree in the sentences. Remind them that they have to use. I like hip hop. I don't. or so do I
