Main Aims

  • To provide practice of names of professions in the context of risky business

Subsidiary Aims

  • To provide fluency in the context of jobs


Warmer/Lead-in (10-15 minutes) • To set lesson context and engage students

First I will check their home task. Later we will play a game like a competition. Students will be divided into two teams, one team will read the riddles, others will try to find what job it is. The team that finds the most correct answers will be the winner.

Exposure (8-10 minutes) • To provide context for the target language through a text or situation

Students will match the pictures with the appropriate jobs, then we will discuss some questions such as "which job do they like most/least?", "what is their dream job?".

Highlighting (8-10 minutes) • To draw students' attention to the target language

I will give them cards to ask questions to each other starting with "How often?". Then I will write the frequency adverbs on the board drawing a line. They will come to the board and decide which adverbs belong to the which part of the line. "Never" being (0%) and "Always" being (100%).

Clarification (3-5 minutes) • To clarify the meaning, form and pronunciation of the target language

I will ask them CCQs such as "is it close to "never" or "always"? and "how close is it" making sure that they understand.

Controlled Practice (5-7 minutes) • To concept check and prepare students for more meaningful practice

They will practice writing different tasks and deciding where to put the frequency adverbs in the sentences.

Semi-Controlled Practice (6-8 minutes) • To concept check further and prepare students for free practice

Students will listen to the audios and complete the tasks.
