Procedure (31-50 minutes)
Students guess the difference between 2 sentences that represent the 2 forms. and a little explanation is made upon which verb takes which form.
Teacher explains the exercise and models the first sentence. The students go through the sentences and fill in the blanks. Each pair then corrects to another pair of students.
Students classify the list of verbs given in the HO into two grammatical groups. Students then are given a sheet of paper that contains the grammar to check their answers.
Students order strips of paper that has sentences in the context of a story. They discuss the reasons behind their ordering. then, they check if their answers are correct by listening to a sound track. Finally, they deduce that -ing form comes after verb+ preposition form. Students then make a list of the verbs and the prepositions being used. If we have time they might write sentences, if not they may take it home.
Students study the examples in exercise 3 individually then write their own sentences. They exchange papers and check for each other.
Students make up sentences about the rule and tell them to the classroom.
