Likes and Dislikes
To provide clarification of likes and dislikes.
To enable the learners to talk and ask questions about likes and dislikes.
Procedure (45-55 minutes)
The instructor draws a smiley face on the board next to a flashcard, for example, chocolate and says, ‘I like chocolate.’ Then he/she draws a sad face on the board and repeats the same with another thing. After this, he/she asks the student " And you?" and wants them to try using "I like / I don't like".
The instructor writes on the board something that usually disliked by children, for example, " I like peas" and asks one of the students "And you?". When the student says " I don't like", the instructor writes this as "(Student's Name) does not like peas. She/he likes chocolate." The instructor points out "s" with another color and asks them why it was written this way. In this way, she/he provides the rules to be discovered.
The instructor gives the reference card out and after a quick examination, let them complete exercise. After this, the instructor shows them the question structure for likes and dislikes and gives them 5 minutes to ask each other about their likes and dislikes. Everbody ask their friend beside them and then explain their friend's likes and dislikes by trying to use the right grammar structure.
The instructor gives the student a grammar test, explains the questions and wants them to complete it individually.
The students tell their answers to the class and the instructor corrects them if it is necessary.
