TP1 Numbers (0-10)
Elementary, A1+ level


In this lesson, students refresh and practice numbers between 0-10, names of 10 countries and the number plates from these countries. The lesson starts with a revision of numbers. This is followed by listening for gist and detailed listening about number plates from around the world. Finally, there is freer speaking practice in small groups to find out about students' cars and their number plates.


Main Aims

  • To provide practice of listening for gist, specific information and detail.

Subsidiary Aims

  • To review and practice numbers from 0 to 10.


Warmer/Lead-in (5-6 minutes) • To set lesson context and engage students

Getting to know you game to learn the names of the students. (Ball game) Elicit the numbers 0-10 (there’s a good chance they’ll know them, write the numbers on the board, and go over the pronunciation). -Today we will speak about... numbers.

Pre-listening (9-10 minutes) • To enable students to understand the meaning, form and pronunciation of the target language.

Ex. 1, P.8. Students work in pairs. They put the letters into correct orders to spell the numbers. Whole class checking. I give a set of cards with written numbers to each pair. One person takes a paper, says the number, and the other student says the numbers that come before and after. (model this so they know what to do) (Make sure you erase the numbers from the board before you start the activity)

Pre-Reading/Listening (6-8 minutes) • To prepare students for the text and make it accessible

I would pay students' attention to the picture of plates. I would ask some questions: Look at these pictures. What is this? Where do we use them? Where is it from? Why? Look at ex.1. Then Students look at ex.1They work in pairs and try to predict where they come from. There are 10 countries below in the exercise. Check in pairs. Whole class discussion.

While-Reading/Listening #1 (5-8 minutes) • To provide students with less challenging gist and specific information reading/listening tasks

Tell them they are going to listen to 2 conversations. Write on the board “Where are they? / “How many people are there?” Ask the students to listen and answer these questions (Play it only once. Peer checking before you do feedback with the whole class.)

While-Reading/Listening #2 (8-10 minutes) • To provide students with more challenging detailed, deduction and inference reading/listening tasks

Listening for Detail: Do ex. 2 – Match the number plates to the conversation. Probably, What kind of car do they have? What are their names? Work in small groups

Post-Reading/Listening (8-10 minutes) • To provide with an opportunity to respond to the text and expand on what they've learned

Speaking: Do ex. 3 Try putting them in different pairs or small groups. Do you have a car? What is the number plate? Students have to stand up and count how many people in the class have a car. How many people in the class have a car? If time: Practice saying a number. A: Say a number. B: Point to the correct number plate.
