Main Aims

  • To provide clarification and practice of used to, use to form in the context of food

Subsidiary Aims

  • To provide fluency speaking practice in a conversation in the context of food passions

Procedure

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

For a warm-up I will play a video which is related to their lesson in order to give them context of the lesson. Then I will ask them two questions: - Do you prefer meat or vegetable? - Are you a big meat eater?

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

On this stage, I will write the word 'passion' on the board and ask them 'Is there anyone who know the meaning of passion?'. After that I will ask them some other questions: - Do you have any food passions? I will model the answer by expressing one of my own food passions: I'm really crazy about chocolate, I love it.

Highlighting (5-6 minutes) • To draw students' attention to the target language

In this part I will play the listening part for them and ask them to repeat. Next I will ask them to open their books and I will ask about the pictures of the book: Which person likes a lot of different foods? Which person doesn't like a lot of foods? Next Students will look at the pictures and read the names of the foods. Then I will ask them individually 'how do you fell about these foods?I will encourage them to use the words in exercise A in their answers. Then I will drill the new vocabulary after that they will do the exercise part based on the listening and we will check answers.

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

To introduce the grammar I will tell them a sentence 'I used to eat a lot of sweets. But now I try to watch my weight.' Afterward I will write it on the board and ask CQs: - Did I eat a lot of sweets in the past? or do I eat a lot of sweets now? Then I will ask about form of the target language 'how does the form of used to differ in the first two example sentences?' I will point out that used to becomes didn't use to in the negative form; the d disappears because didn't is the past form. Then I will shift their attention to the example questions in the grammar box. After reading the examples I will ask 'how does the form of used to change in a question? Next I will focus on the pronunciation of used to and use to and point out that the d is elided, and so the pronunciation of both forms is the same.

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

Students will do an exercise of the book which is related to the book. First they will underline now in the second sentence of each item. Second I will point out that the second sentence talks about present behavior which is different from past behavior. Third students will complete each sentence in pairs. At the end they will check the answers with each other.

Semi-Controlled Practice (8 minutes) • To concept check further and prepare students for free practice

Students will listen to a conversation and then I will write some sentences of the conversation on the board and ask them to suggest other ways of saying them. Are you a big coffee drinker? (Do you drink a lot of coffee?) I'm crazy about coffee. (I love coffee.) I've been cutting back on coffee. (I've been trying to drink less coffee.) Then I will ask them questions to check comprehension: Who used to drink a lot of coffee? Would the man really die without coffee? Then I will ask them to memorize the conversation and then do a role play activity in pairs.

Free Practice (5 minutes) • To provide students with free practice of the target language

I will ask them to discuss about their food passion using 'used to, use to' in pairs: - Did you use to eat (fish,meat etc.) ? - What do you eat now? I will move around the room and help them as needed.
