Main Aims

  • To provide clarification of verbs related to Memory, SS will concentrate on the meanings, form and pronunciation step by step. The SS will consolidate the use of these verbs by talking to each other by benefiting from their past experiences.

Subsidiary Aims

  • To provide accuracy speaking practice in a conversation in the context of memory, a random conversation around the topic will be introduced to the SS by transitioning smoothly. T will assess whether they are capable of understanding the exact meanings or not.


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

- While we are greeting each other, a smooth transition comes in. Transition may be followed right after a prompt answer coming from the SS. - Miming one of the verbs ( verbs of remember or forget).

Exposure (12-15 minutes) • To provide context for the target language through a text.

- Focus on meaning by demonstrating the verbs step by step and concentrating on two verbs 'forget' and 'remember'. - Activity 1 is done mostly by the SS as a PW. Peer correction may be applied when T monitors them closely. Then - Focusing on verb forms especially of two verbs (remember, forget) take on -ing suffix or just use Bare Verb after 'to'. - Meaning Differences between them. - Mime or small examples can be used. - Distinctions will be highlighted by the SS, WGFB. Lastly, -Pronunciation of each verbs, - Repetitions of pronunciations belonging to these verbs.

SS-Centered Practice (6-10 minutes) • Making SS complete the gaps in 'fill in the blank questions'

-SS will give answers in PW to complete the sentences. - After all PWs finish the task, checking and evaluating will be done by WGFB.

Semi-Controlled Practice (8-10 minutes) • Concept of checking further and preparing students for free practice.

- Setting new pairs for PP for a practise session on what they have learned so far. - A new set of practise materials can be used, differentiated practise would concentrate on supporting them with new highlights.

Free Practice (5-8 minutes) • To provide students with free practice of the target language

- 4 sentences are to be selected by SS that they have not practised yet. - T will write/prepare new questions according to those not practised by the SS. i.e: Do you remember the last moment when you got into raptures? What was the reason? or What if you forget something necessary for your work? What happens next? - T monitors the way of the SS' language use. T does not engage until he sees erranous answer.
