Teaching Practice 4
A2 level


In this lesson students will practice future tense. We will highlight the slight difference between future tense and present continues tense. The context is Tourism. Students will have to talk about their future holiday plans as well as how to improve the tourism in their own town(Istanbul). In this lesson, I will give the difference in meaning, then the form(structures of future tense and present continues tense) and lastly, I will drill on pronunciation(Esp. "Gonna" form). Assuming that Ss already know about future tense, this class will mostly be held with learner-centered practice activities.
