A1/A2 level


In this lesson the students are going to learn adverbs of frequency. The lesson starts with a video, in which a bus driver drives angrily, in order to elicit 'how does he drive'. then the teacher will mime 'driving carefully' to elicit 'carefully'. then the Ss will do the same in their groups, the aim is testing their knowledge of adverbs of manner. After that, using guided discovery technique the learners will do 3 exercises, doing so learners will hopefully learn the TL. finally, they will have freer practice.
