Procedure (36-49 minutes)
Greeting students and have one of them read a sentence from the WB that have been deliberately written wrongly. Ask the students if it is right, and how to change it to make it right, e.g. Che is s man, or, Che is not a woman. CCQ Not means, yes or no? Don’t go means, you stay here?
The students will listen to a recording of Andre and Emma discussing how they feel about sport, watching or playing sport. This introduces them to the target language I like and I don’t like. The students will then complete exercise 1.a individually, and check their answers in pairs.
CCQ Does Andre like football? Does Emma like sport? Did Andre and Emma talk about what they like? Did they talk about what they don’t like?
The students will be shown cue cards containing a number of I like/I don’t like, I watch/I don’t watch statements. They will read these as a group and then as individuals. CCQ Is it, I+don’t like tea, or, I don’t+like tea. Is it, I don’t+watch TV, or, I don’t watch+TV. Next, the students will be asked to provide their own I like/I don’t like, or I watch/I don’t watch sentences. They will then complete exercise 2 individually and check their answers in pairs.
The students will listen to an audio recording of two students talking. They will then complete exercise 3 individually and check answers in pairs. CCQ will take the form of cue cards and selecting the right form of yes, me too/no, me neither response to the cue cards.
Four students will be selected and handed cards on which they have to write three statements of the form I like/I don’t like, or I watch/I don’t watch. They must then try to collect as many friends as they can by recording yes, me too answers. When someone responds, yes, me too to one of their statements, that person stays in their corner and is their friend. The person with the most friends wins. Repeat with different students if time allows. Otherwise, CCQ with cue cards to ensure comprehension of, and demonstrate on the WB.
