TP 2: Vocab - Phrasal Verbs
Intermediate level

Description

In this lesson, students will learn some new vocabulary items by means of learning about phrasal verbs. They will start with a pair activity involving matching given phrasal verbs to their definitions, before moving on to a more detailed discussion of how phrasal verbs are structured. They will then work in pairs on two exercises about separable and inseparable phrasal verbs. Following this, they will do some pronunciation drills as a whole class to understand how words link together in a sentence in fluent English. Finally, they will do an exercise in pairs of putting the correct phrasal verbs into given sentences and practise reading them smoothly to each other.

Main Aims

  • To provide practice of Phrasal verbs in the context of Unusual journeys
  • To provide practice of Phrasal verbs in the context of Unusual journeys

Subsidiary Aims

  • To provide fluency speaking practice in a Word linking in the context of Unusual journeys
  • To provide fluency speaking practice in a Word linking in the context of Unusual journeys

Procedure

Warm-up (3-4 minutes) • To recap previous lesson and introduce new topic and lesson aims.

Ask them about unusual journeys and mention some of the phrasal verbs that came up in the previous class. Then tell them the name of the structure (phrasal verb), ask them if they've heard of it before, and tell them this will form the bulk of the lesson.

Matching task (5-6 minutes) • to understand the meanings of some given phrasal verbs

Give hand out 1 to students and have them work in pairs to match the phrasal verbs with the correct definitions. Then have them swap partners and peer check before doing WGFB.

Phrasal verb explanation (7-8 minutes) • To understand how phrasal verbs are structured and the difference between separable and inseparable phrasal verbs.

Explain on the board with a column for separable and a column for inseparable phrasal verbs and with example sentences illustrating how separable phrasal verbs can have the object before or after the particle, whereas in inseparable phrasal verbs the object always comes after. Then give them the hand out to read through on their own.

Putting the object in the correct place (7-8 minutes) • To strengthen understanding of separable and inseparable phrasal verbs.

Explain to students what the following exercise involves - putting the word "it" in the appropriate place in the sentences - and make sure they understand the task by having them do an example with you on the board. Give them the hand out and ask them to complete in pairs.Then swap partners, peer check, WGFB.

Replacing "it" with a noun (4-5 minutes) • Contextualise phrasal verbs

Exactly the same steps and same hand out as previous stage, but ask them to come up with other nouns in place of "it".

Word-linking drills (pronunciation) (5-6 minutes) • To be able to speak in fluent sentences.

Explain that when speaking at a normal pace, words in the sentence join together when an initial vowel sound follows a final consonant. Write examples on the board and draw lines between words to show visually where words join in spoken English. One by one write each example on the board from the pronunciation exercise on p.19 of "Straightforward Intermediate", asking the students to repeat drills as a WG and as individuals before moving on to the next example.

Fill in the blanks (7-8 minutes) • to strengthen everything covered in the lesson

Explain that the next exercise involves putting the phrasal verbs we have covered into the blanks on the hand outs they will be given, and that they should read the completed sentences aloud to their partner using word linking. Put class into pairs, give half of the pairs hand out 4a and the other half 4b. Monitor and correct incorrect language immediately. Peer check. WGFB.

Wrap up (1-2 minutes) • To end the lesson smoothly

Praise students for hard work and pass on to Damla.
