Teaching Practice-3
A1 - Beginner level


In this lesson I am going to teach asking personal information questions e.g. Where are you from originally? What's your father like? and also giving answers to these questions. Especially I am going to try to make sure whether the students can generate the questions in the correct form. The students can be aware of asking Yes-No Question from the previous lesson. So, with the aim of checking to what extend they have learned these forms, I'll start the lesson by making them to ask questions to me about the person on the board. The next stages of the lesson will continue with Controlled , Semi-Controlled and Free Practices.
