TP 7 Grammar
Ss will have practciced how to use the Comparative and superlative adjectives in the context of countries all around the world.
To provide fluency speaking practice in a controlled conversation about countries all around the world.
Procedure (40-52 minutes)
I'll display a video about countries and a sort of comparison to be introduced to the comparative and superlative adjectives. I'll exlain the meaning of the word waste in the beginning.
I'll hand the students the first hand out which is a small quiz about their previous knowledge about countries and big cities around the world. After they finish, the Ss will check their answers in pairs. Answer Key
After playing the CD for checking the answer Ex. 6, I'll elicit from the Ss their answers and based upon them I will begin to clarify the meaning of some sentences like: 1. China has a bigger population than Russia 2. Canada has the longest coastline in the world/ The Canadian coastline is longer than Indonesian coastline. 3. Chicago is the furthest north/Chicago is further than New York. 4. France is the most popular country in the world with tourists. I will ask the students about the difference between the noun and the adjective and show them their order n the sentence. I will clarify the meaning of each sentence and show the difference between the number of syllables in each adjective and how this changes the way of using the suffixes or more/most.
I'll hand the second handout to the Ss to make sure that they understood what have been clarified and explained in the previous part of the lesson. The Ss will do it first individually then check in pairs. An answer key will be prepared to be projected on the Smart Board.
I'll prepare sheets including some adjectives to be stuck on the wall of the classroom in two columns. The Ss will be divided into two lines and each will write the comparative and superlative form of each adjective and the winner will be the team who will finish finish first and correctly. If there is still some time in the lesson, I'll ask each student to use two adjective to be used in comparative and superlative forms.
