Main Aims

  • To teach there is and there are in real world contexts

Subsidiary Aims

  • To learn vocabulary about objects, especially in apartments


Warmer/Lead-in (3-5 minutes) • To set lesson context and engage students

Students look around the room and identify different objects they see in the room. Then we count how many there are and practice talking about these objects using "there is," "there are."

Exposure (10-15 minutes) • To provide a model of production expected in coming tasks through reading/listening

We drill the terminology of "there is, there are" and then look at page 56 and identify the different objects in the room. The students do this in groups and then listen and repeat.

Useful Language (8-10 minutes) • To highlight and clarify useful language for coming productive tasks

We listen to the conversation about Robert's living room and then practice asking questions about it. We do this by giving one student the pictures and facilitating questions about it with the other student.

Productive Task(s) (18-20 minutes) • To provide an opportunity to practice target productive skills

Using the worksheet with pictures of animals and furniture we write about what there is and isn't in our apartments. Then we ask each other questions about it.
