Main Aims

  • To provide clarification and practice of demontrative pronouns in the context of shopping in a grocery store.

Subsidiary Aims

  • To provide clarification and practice of vocabulary in the context of shopping in a grocery store and to provide practice in spoken usage of the new grammar.


Vocabulary (5-6 minutes) • To provide clarification of the new vocabulary

I will bring 2 sets of realia which I will set on 2 tables. Students will be divided into 2 groups. Each group has one table of objects to look at and name the objects. After a minute or two, I'll give them tags with names of the objects and they have to stick them to the objects. We'll spend some time on clarification of any unknown words and then we'll listen to the recording for pronunciation.

Listening for gist (1-2 minutes) • To introduce students to the context of shopping

I will give them HO with photos of a shop assistant and a customer. Students will listen to get the general idea.

Listening for specific information (2-3 minutes) • To listen for specific information in the listening task

Students will listen to the track for the second time. They have to fill in the blanks with prices of the objects mentioned in the listening.They will check in pairs, then we'll check together.

Grammar (5-6 minutes) • To provide clarification of grammar

I will ask the students to look at the photos and tell me the words in bold (this, that, these, those). I will ask CCQs about each item to make students understand what the difference is. Then I'll fill in a small chart on the WB with explanation of the pronouns being used with here/there and is/are.

Controlled practice (3-4 minutes) • To provide practice of the new grammar

I will give out a gap fill HO with new grammar. Students will fill in the blanks, check in pairs and we'll do an answer key on the board.

Semi-controlled practice (2-3 minutes) • To make students use the new grammar

I will place the vocabulary items + some pens or papers around the class. Students will first sit, then they can stand up if they want and they're going to ask each other obout the objects around the class: What is this/that? What are these/those?

Game (4-5 minutes) • To practice vocabulary

I will give our a HO with a crossword puzzle with the new vocabulary. Students can work and check in pairs.

Speaking - semi controlled practice (6-7 minutes) • To provide fluency in speaking in the context of shopping

I will give students 2 questions: What other things can you buy in a shop? What do they like to buy? What do you buy every day? They will do it as a whole class. Each one of them will take a piece of paper and has to write down 1 answer to whichever question from the people they've talked to. We'll check some answers together.

If-time activity (5-6 minutes) • To provide practice in writing

Students will write a chort essay on 'Which shop do you like and why?' and 'Do you shop a lot?' If the lesson ends, they can give it to me and I'll correct it at home or if not, we can talk about a few ideas students have written about.
