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

T talks about his plans for future using conjunctions like ‘as soon as, 'when' and 'if'. Then, the T asks the Ss about the tenses of these sentences: If I have a better job, I will save some money. As soon as I save enough money, I will buy a new house. When I buy a new house, I will get married. Then, the T asks the Ss about their future plans in pairs. T asks Ss if there is something interesting about their mates.

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

Pre-teach the following words: plumber: a person whose job is to supply and connect, or repair water pipes, baths, toilets, etc /plʌm.ə r / noun [ C ] Does a plumber repair water pipes? Is it an office job? resign: to give up a job or position by telling your employer that you are leaving. /rɪzaɪn/ verb [ I or T ] Does a person, who resigns his job, likes it? Should he tell his employer that he is leaving? run (a hotel): /rʌn/ [ T ] to be in control of . T Tells Ss that they are going to read a text about people's successful stories. T holds the hand-out and tells Ss that they are going to read the stories and match them to the quotes (to the person who said them) individually. T Gives Ss the hand-out. T tells Ss to check their answers in pairs. T provides the answer key.

Clarification (10-12 minutes) • To clarify the meaning, form and pronunciation of the target language

T asks Ss to underline the sentences with if, as soon as, before, unless, when and until. T clarifies of If: used to say that a particular thing can or will happen only after something else happens. If I don't enjoy it, I will try something else. Is it possible this will happen? Yes As soon as: at the same time or a very short time after.

T highlights the form of the future clauses by asking Ss How many parts are there in each sentence? Which action will happen first? Which action will be the next? Which tense is used in the first part? Which tense is used in the second part? T clarifies that almost after these linking words we cannot use future tense.

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