TP3 - Getting it right/big events
Intermediate, B2 level


In this lesson students will learn new vocabulary (events + extreme adjectives) in reference to events and celebrations. The lesson will start with a warm up exercise that will introduce the topic of events/celebrations. Students will work together to answer questions about photos in the textbook to ensure that they have a good understanding of the topic and can incorporate the vocabulary into real life settings. Students will work in pairs and groups to discuss questions and complete a "fill in the gaps" exercise. They will compare answers before we go through the answers as a class.

Main Aims

  • To provide practice and clarification of extreme adjectives in the context of events and celebrations

Subsidiary Aims

  • To provide accuracy in speaking practice in a conversation in the context of events and celebrations


Warmer/Lead-in (3-5 minutes) • To set lesson context and engage students

I will have 6 pictures on the projector of various different events and celebrations. I will ask students to identify what is happening in each photo and which events they are most likely to attend and why.

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

Students will work in pairs to identify what items of vocabulary match with each picture on the board. I will print the vocabulary (eg. audience clapping, people going wild) so that each student has a copy of the vocab. We will go through the answers as a whole class once the task is completed.

Teach (8-10 minutes) • To clarify areas of the target language where students had difficulty in the first test stage

After matching the vocabulary to the pictures, we will go through the answers as a class. During this time I will be concept checking each item and asking the stronger students to explain meanings to those who do not know what the different phrases mean.

Test #2 (6-10 minutes) • Check students' use of the target language again and compare with the first test

Students will answer the questions in exercise 3 about carnivals in their country, whether they enjoy crowds and how they react if they are in crowds of people who are singing and dancing. I will be monitoring during this activity and encouraging students to use the vocabulary learn in the previous exercise.

Task (5 minutes) • To assess Ss knowledge of extreme adjectives

Students will match definitions for extreme adjectives in exercise 1 on page 73 from the TB. Following completion they will check with their neighbours to make sure they have all gotten the correct answers.

Task (10-15 minutes) • Show understanding of target language

Give students a "fill in the gaps" exercise to show understand of the extreme adjectives. Check answers in pairs.

Task (10 minutes) • Introduce students to intensifiers + free practice with target language

Students will work in pairs to create 3 sentences each relating to events/celebration, using the vocab from ex 1 on page 72, extreme adjectives and intensifiers.
