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

I will start my lesson by telling a situation to SS to have them engaged with the lesson.

Exposure (8-10 minutes) • To provide context for the target language through a text or situation

to provide context for the target language through listening to recordings. Focus SS attention to the pictures and ask them to guess who is making requests in each picture, and what they are doing.T would ask SS to listen to the track.T pauses after each request for SS to look at the pictures and decide who is talking, and then compare their ideas in pairs.T might play the track again.

Highlighting (2-4 minutes) • To draw students' attention to the target language

T hands the script to SS and asks them to read it and highlight the phrases that used to: -ask if you can do something. -ask another person to do something. -say yes. -say no. T hands requests on strips of paper to SS and drills with them then removes the responses and sees if they can respond accordingly.

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

T writes phrases on board to show intonation and pronunciation of TL, then drills with SS.T asks CCqs to check SS understanding. Are we asking or ordering? Are we being polite or rude? T elicits some responses after clarifying on board.

Controlled Practice (8-10 minutes) • To concept check and prepare students for more meaningful practice

T hands HO3 to SS and asks them to rewrite sentences in pairs, then act out the dialogue.

Free Practice (8-10 minutes) • To provide students with free practice of the target language

SS make up a dialogue between someone making a request and someone accepting or refusing. T asks ss to write down a request then go ask each other and practice responding.
