Main Aims

  • To provide review and clarification of subject/oblect questions in the context of Britishness (British national culture).

Subsidiary Aims

  • To provide accuracy and fluency speaking practice in a by preparing a quiz about their national culture and asking and answering in pairs in the context of Britishness( British national culture)


1. Warmer (6-7 minutes) • to get to know each other

SS will write 4 sentences about themselves (2 sentences are true and two of them are not) They will stand up and tell their sentences for their partners to guess which ones are true and which ones are not. They will switch partners until everyone has talked to one another.(speed dating)

2.Lead-in (5-6 minutes) • to get to know each other, introduce the context and activate schemata

SS talk about the the rules in their country and then relates it to the text they've read and summarise the points made in it in pairs. Then they share their ideas with the WC.

3.Grammar (8-9 minutes) • to provide guided discovery of TL based on the reading text

M: Write ' Why do we need a citizenship test?' 'Who thinks the test is a good idea?' on WB. SS discuss the questions for a minute. Ask 1-2 ss to answer the questions and write their answers on WB. F: Ask SS: 'What is different about the sentences?' referring to the questions written on the board. Elicit the auxiliary verb 'do' Ask SS: 'Where is the subject in this question?' Highlight the subject in both questions. Then refer back to SS' answers on WB. Highlight the subjects in the answers. Elicit the rule regarding the use of auxiliary. Elicit the similarity between subject question form and a statement. SS look at the grammar box and by looking at the rules they underline 4 subject and 4 object questions in the reading text. Later SS stand up and write the questions they find in the correct cathegory Subject Qs or Object Qs on WB. WC FB is given. P: After they sit down, elicit the sentence stress and intonation accompanied by drilling. Mark the stress and intonation on the sentences on WB.

4. Grammar Practice (4-5 minutes) • to provide controlled practice of TL by correcting mistakes

SS correct the mistakes in questions in Ex. 2 in pairs. Later, they check their answers with a different partner. WG FB is given by nominating SS to read out the correct answers. Ask CCQ's if necessary: Where is the subject in the question? Is this a subject question or an object question? Do we need an auxiliary verb in this question?

5.Semi-controlled practice (7-8 minutes) • to provide semi-controlled practice of subject/object question form

SS turn prompts into questions in Ex.3 in pairs. WC FB is given.

6. Speaking (10-12 minutes) • to provide freer speaking practice of TL

SS seperate into 2 groups to sit a British General Knowledge Quiz in groups. They pick a name for their group in the context. Each team has to answer 6 questions choosing the correct answer out of multiple choice answers. The other group has the answers so that if the answer is incorrect they can read the answer out. The group with the most correct answers will win.
