Beginners, A1 level


In this lesson, students will be introduced to the target language through a listening in the context of a voice competition. Students will have the chance to make an inference to the target language while listening and will then see the clarification on the HO which they have to find themselves. They will consolidate meaning and the use of the target language with a gap filling. To conclude, they will produce what they have learnt through a speaking activity.
