Ask the question "Do you think you are a lucky person?" Students work in pairs and explain Why/Why not to each other. Ask 2-3 students their answers.
Elicit - What do we say when someone needs good wishes when they have an exam / a job interview etc - Good luck. Explain there are a lot of expressions to use about events related to luck. Ss in small groups match the meanings with expressions. GW - WCFB
Ss work in pairs and decide if the expressions are positive or negative. Monitor and help where needed. General FB w/c Ss work individually and complete the gap-fill activity. PC/WCFB
Ask: Can you remember a time when you were either very lucky or very unlucky? What happened? Ss make notes about their experience. Pair Work: Student A will tell the experience and try to use expressions. Student B will try to use an appropriate expression as an answer. They'll change the roles. Monitor and help where needed. Regroup students and make them retell their experience to others.
Do error correction on the w/b from errors noted.
If time allows, show students the quotes about luck. Give them YES/NO cards and ask if they think the quotes are true. Elicit one quote that students aren't agreed on if the quote is true or not. Divide the class according to the answers. Ss who share the same idea will discuss for a few minutes then try to convince the other group that they're right.
