Marzieh kasiri, verbs and nouns that go to gether
To provide students different types of collocations and present them their appropriacy. Collocation, or how words occur together in speech and writing, is an important part of speaking and writing fluently. To be able to produce native-like speech and writing, students need to know which words work together well. As the collocation plays an important role in the English language, I always spend much time on it in the class. finally I expect my students to produce sentences with an appropriate collocation.
To provide students practical and useful collocations for writing and also it really helps them to understand the listening with a heavy accent.
Procedure (21-32 minutes)
My context is a party and different kinds of cloths and jewelries. I ask them if they were at the party last week or not. if yes, I ask "what did you wear? and why?"
I assume that students know those 3000 basic words to communicate and convey their notion. And also they have known simple present, past simple, present progressive, future, past progressive, present perfect, passive, active teens and modal verbs. As they are at intermediate level, they also have known different parts of speech, countable and uncountable noun and etc.
They may mismatch the noun and the verb. For instance, they may say "lose the bus", "discover a paper", "tell hello", "miss your way" and etc. I give them a feedback directly or indirectly to correct themselves.
Asking 2 or 3 questions from students if they had a party during the last week by showing some pictures on the board and motivate them to give me some examples.
Asking students to come to the board and pick up their own verb they need.
Checking the verbs which they have picked up from the board one by one and correct the word that is extra and they were supposed to cross it out.To clarify the students if they make a mistake to choose the verb.
Asking students to do the exercise number 2 and fill in the blank individuality then compare the answer with a partner.
To observe them during the exercise and answer their question if they have problems with it. And also check them to work in pairs or not? do they accompany each other or not?
Asking students to do exercise number 3. they should ask and answer with a partner and make sentences with the collocations they have learnt. then tell the class loudly.
