Pre-intermediate English /A2 level
To provide students with grammar in the form of the second conditional in the context of hypothetical situations (unreal) using if and would/wouldn't clauses.
To give students practice in speaking for fluency and accuracy in the context of "what would you do" questions.
Procedure (40-52 minutes)
T uses a story about a thief in the Metro Station to set the context and engage the students. I will elicit from Ss what they would have done in that situation. "If this was you, what would you do?"
T will quickly review first conditional using if/when/before/after with will clause. Sample sentence will be shown. i.e., If I miss the bus, I will take the Metro. T will introduce on WB the second conditional--would/wouldn't with explanation to Ss about use ---unreal situations/unlikely to happen/nearly impossible/improbable. (0 - 1% chance) Use of cline to show probability difference between 1st and 2nd conditional. Example: If I won the lottery, I would (I'd) buy a new car. If + I + past simple, I + would (I'd) + verb base form Note: The two clauses can be switched with comma removed. T will give HO to use would/wouldn't. Ss will pair up and check their answers. WCF
Ss will pair up. T will give cut-ups to paired students to create their own dialogue using hypothetical situations. Students will have sentence prompt to create their dialogue. (I would..... .) Example: (prompt words) .....you miss your bus. I would..... take the next bus.
T will give Ss a HO with hypothetical situation texts for students to choose the correct response sentence. T will demo #1 on the WB. ICQ's to clarify instructions. Ss will pair up and discuss their answers. T will review WC.
T will give Ss a Find someone who .... worksheet with 3 hypothetical situations and Ss will mingle asking each other, "What would you do if.....", with students using "I would ......" responses. Students will decide on the response.
