Grammar Lesson
A2 level


In this lesson, Ss will learn about superlative adjectives through Guided Discovery based on a listening passage about films from the previous lesson. The lesson starts with asking Ss to highlight the TL from the listening transcript from the previous lesson. Next, clarification will be provided through some activities for the Ss to discover the TL themselves. This is followed with some controlled and freer practice.

ICQs: - Are we going to write full sentences? (no) - Are we righting on the HO or the empty paper?
