Writing using "can" and "cann't" in the context of vacation
To practice writing using "can" and "can't" in the context of "holiday"
Procedure (31-39 minutes)
Tell the students that one of your friends wants to travel to Istanbul next week. Ask them about the things he "can" and "can't" do in Istanbul. Give the students one or two examples.
Elicit 4 blocking vocabulary (holiday, ....) using visuals (pictures or images). Highlight and clarify MFP.
Give the students an email written by sb who is on holiday in Paris. In the email, he tells another friend about his holiday using the TL. Ask the students to answer some questions to skim the email. The students check the answers together.
Use the email to highlight and clarify the useful language and how to write an email. For example, how to start, what to write and how to finish the email.
Ask the students to close their eyes and imagine they are on holiday somewhere. Ask them to say where they are, what they can/can't do there. Ask them to open their eyes and write an email for one of their friends telling him/her about the things they can and can't do. The students shouldn't write their name and the name of the person who gets the email. Take the emails and shuffle them. Give each student one of the written emails. Ask the students to mingle around and find the person who has written the email.
The teacher reads some of the emails and provides feedback on the content and language. The teacher corrects the errors.
