A2 level


In this lesson,students learn about quantifiers through learning about foods based on a reading text with true and false questions. The lesson starts with asking about the fruits and some foods. This is followed by pre-teaching the vocabulary and a reading passage where students see the target language in context. Finally, there is some controlled practice using quantifiers and there is/are in a game through making up sentences.

Main Aims

  • To give students practice about quantifiers in a text and fill-in-the-blank worksheet by using the vocabulary of foods.

Subsidiary Aims

  • To clarify there is/are and practise foods names


Warmer/Lead-in (2-4 minutes) • To set lesson context and engage students

Show some fruits as realia and some pictures in slides and ask their names and how many/much there is/are and write them on the white board. By means of this,pre-teach the vocabulary which will be used in teaching the target language.

Exposure (4-6 minutes) • To provide context for the target language through a text

Students read the text and answer the questions true or false. Go through the rows and help if they need.Then, show the answers.If there are wrong answers at this point,ignore them.

Clarification (8-10 minutes) • To clarify the meaning, form and pronunciation of the target language

Clarify the quantifiers in the text using the same sentences from the text.Ask CCQs to check the meaning. - Are there one or two apples? - No.Why? - Is there enough jam? etc.

Controlled Practice (5-8 minutes) • To concept check and prepare students for more meaningful practice

Students do the exercises in pairs and I show them the answers. I re-explain if they have wrong answers.

Free Practice (8-12 minutes) • To provide students with free practice of the target language

GAME Students hit the ring and make up a sentence using a quantifier. The faster student should say the sentence.Then,she gets 10 points.
