Intermediate level


No materials added to this plan yet.

Main Aims

  • To provide practice of Permissions with Let, Allow to and Make in the context of Work and innovative managers

Subsidiary Aims

  • To provide gist reading practice using a text about permissions in the context of Work
  • To provide fluency speaking practice in a conversation in the context of work


Lead-In (2-5 minutes) • To generate interest in the topic of the lesson

* For this stage, I will begin by asking them to tell each about their idea of the ideal job, ideal company and the ideal manager. * After that, I'll refer them to a short matching exercise, in which they will match tasks with workers and words with their meaning. * After the pair-check, I'll ask them to write the answers on the board one by one

Reading Gist-task (5-8 minutes) • To ensure SS are comfortable with the text before exploiting it for language

* In this stage, they'll each have a copy of the text, which they will read at a moderate pace. I wouldn't want them to read too quickly as they will be using the same text, but slightly modified, for the next stage. * They read, then they tell each what they thought of the text and its general idea.

Highlight Language (3-6 minutes) • Highlight the target language through noticing.

* In this stage, I'll give each another copy of the text. The difference here would be that all the target language has been removed. They fill in the gaps from memory as best as they could. * When they're finished they check their answers together in a pair-check. *Finally, they check the answers in the original text.

Clarifying Language (8-10 minutes) • To provide clarification of meaning, form and pronunciation of the target language

This will be one of the very long stages in the lesson. * Using sentences from the text, I will put three examples on the board, in three separate columns. One for "let", "allow to" and "make". * I will try to elicit the meaning, and difference, from them as best as possible. * After checking the meaning, we will move to the form and how it differs with different pronouns, between present and past. I'll be using substitution tables. * After that, the board will be wiped clean and I'll begin the drilling.

Practice (10-10 minutes) • To provide an opportunity for SS to use the target language

* This stage contains two practices, the controlled and the freer practice. * The controlled practice is in the sheets, where they will fill gaps on the target language. *For the Freer practice, I will set them in pairs and set the task of "creating" a company, what the name would be, the business, the rules, what they would let and allow their employees to do and what they wouldn't, etc. When they're done, I will take one from each pair, sit them together so they could exchange thoughts on their project. * Feedback
