  • To provide clarification, review and practice of language used for giving emphasis in the context of different ways of giving emphasis

Subsidiary Aims

  • pronunciation to add more emphasis to the words
  • To provide gist listening practice using a text about lost and found in the context of emphasis


Warmer/Lead-in (3-5 minutes) • To set lesson context and engage students

I will ask them do you often lose things? and how do you feel about it? I will try to make it Ss' as i can so that they have time to be prepared and to stimulate their interest

Exposure (4-5 minutes) • To provide context for the target language through a text or situation

I will tell them a story about how I was really furious when I lost my keys on my way to a dinner party. It was so annoying and on top of that my wallet got stolen it was far too much to handle. then I will ask them who had a day like this? as i am going to elicit the TL from them using Ss' approach.

Highlighting (4-5 minutes) • To draw students' attention to the target language

I will provide listening activity and ask them to find the missing words from page.68 Ts.3 then I will highlight the TL using some of the words they have in the answer sheet. and ask them does the conversation make sense without these words? why we added these words then?

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

I will write some of the sentence my students have in their answer sheet to clarify MPF using these sentences. After writing all sentences on the board I will use Ss' to elicit the purpose and the usage by asking what makes this sentence stronger and add emphasis to it? then I will divide each on to show the form then i will use the sound record again to provide pronunciation by asking them first how they added intonation through their tone of voice. Then I will drill with them.

Controlled Practice (4-5 minutes) • To concept check and prepare students for more meaningful practice

I will ask students to match the activity page.68 practice one. Then ask LS to work in pairs to check their answers together. the I will provide the with the answer sheet to check their answer and if they have any questions.

Free Practice (8-10 minutes) • To provide students with free practice of the target language

i will give cards with different situations and ask Ls to write 5 sentences regarding them expressing their feelings and adding emphasis and try to use as many of the TL as they can in the process they I will ask them to work in groups in order to produce the TL together.
