Grammar Have / has got
Elementary level


In this lesson students learn about using "have / has got" to talk about possessions. This will be achieved through a listening and reading activity in which Sally and her grand father talk about the things they've got. Students will elicit the structure through CCQ. This will be followed by controlled practice and finally a freer activity.
