  • To provide Ss clarification and practice of quantity expressions, and to review and extend Ss knowledge of countable and uncountable nouns in the context of food

Subsidiary Aims

  • To give Ss practice in the integrated skills of reading for detail and speaking for accuracy and fluency


Warmer/Lead-in (2-3 minutes) • To set lesson context and engage students

* write chocolate /ˈtʃɒklət/ on the board * Hand out chocolates to everyone * Tell my little personal anecdote about chocolate

Exposure (6-8 minutes) • To provide context for the target language through a text

* Show Ss the top half of HO 1. Ss to read the questions and guess how their partner would answer. * CCQ for (several) if needed - Is it more than one? yes, Is it many? yes * Put Ss in pairs and give the HO. * When they are finished they need to ask the Qs to their partner to check if they guessed correctly. * FB - check whats an alcoholic and a workaholic and Ss answer. * Ask who is a chocoholic?

Review (6-8 minutes) • To review conditional & unconditional nouns & check Ss use of form

* On the WB write - chocolate is good for you chips are good for you * The verb (Is) after chocolate is it singular or plural? singular (highlight no 's' after chocolate) * The verb (are) after chips is it singular or plural? plural (note the 's' after chips) * What are chocolate and chips ? nouns * Show the 2nd half of HO 1 and explain that all the words in the box are singular. Ss need to decide which words are countable and uncountable . If a word is countable then use the plural form * Ss complete in pairs while I monitor & check for accuracy & prompt to get Ss to self-correct if necessary * Ss to check answers on the answer key on the wall

Clarification #1 (5-6 minutes) • To clarify the meaning and form

* Show Ss HO 2 (top half) - they need to complete the sentences with countable/uncountable * Give HO2 Ss to complete alone while I monitor * Check the answers with a partner 1) countable 2) uncountable *Ask Ss if any nouns can be both countable and uncountable ? chocolate can be because it is in a liquid form (chocolate) and you can also have chocolates in a box of chocolates (a chocolate) * In pairs complete the second half of HO 2 * check answers as a whole class (beer, cake, coffee, salad, whisky, yoghurt

Controlled practice/Highlighting (6-8 minutes) • To test Ss knowledge of quantifiers used with conditional & unconditional nouns

* Show HO 3 - quantifier task * Work in pairs - fill in the gaps with many/much then decide which answer is NOT possible * Give HO 3 Ss complete in pairs * Give everyone a chocolate bar and tell them the answers are on the back

Clarification #2 (8-10 minutes) • To clarify the meaning and form

* draw my chart on the WB (see teacher notes) * Ss to work in pairs/small groups to decide where to put the quantifiers in the previous task in the columns * Ss to come to the write board to write the answers * FB and deal with any problems

Semi-controlled practice (10-12 minutes) • To give Ss practice in the TL, the opportunity to personalise the TL and some speaking practice

* Drill - How many phone calls have you made? How much money have you spent? * Ss to ask the Qs to everyone, answers can be like the examples or their own * Monitor and take notes for any problems with TL for delayed error correction * Take FB - did you have the same answers? * Delayed error correction if there is any and if there is time
