Pre-Intermediate level


In this lesson, Ss will focus on using the words "want, hope, plan, would like to, going to, looking forward to" when they make future plans. The students' awareness will be raised about the target language. They will have a chance to practice their speaking skill by using the activity that is provided by T.


Main Aims

  • To provide grammar structure effectively and try to make the students participate to the lesson.

Subsidiary Aims

  • To develop students’ ability to talk about their future plans using TL in the context of hope and fears.


Warmer/Lead-in (2-2 minutes) • To set lesson context and engage students

T starts talking about the text that Ss did on the previous lesson. T says it was interesting how the children were talking about their hopes for their own lives and their families. T asks if their kids or grandkids have similar hopes. T gives an example from her son and gets a few answers from Ss just to get their interest to the topic.

Test #1 (5-6 minutes) • To gauge students' prior knowledge of the target language

T asks Ss to pick a color from the colored strips in order to regroup them. T gives bunch of "cut up sentences" and ask Ss to work as a group and match the yellow ones with the green ones. T asks ICQs. After that T asks groups to check their asnwers. WCF will be fallowed and the answer sheet will be given at the end of the session.

Teach (18-20 minutes) • To clarify areas of the target language where students had difficulty in the first test stage

T asks Ss to work in pairs and try to remember as many of the children's hopes for the future as possible. T elicits a few examples and writes one sentence on WB for each form (want, hope, would like, be going to, looking forward to) that will be taught. T checks to see if Ss understand the meaning of the sentences by using CCQs. For example for the first sentence (He wants to be good-looking): 1. Is it for now or future? Future 2. Is it a plan? No 3. Is it a wish?Yes 4.Is it definite/certain? T uses CCQs for the sentences that include ‘’hope’’ and ‘’would like to’’. T asks Ss where we use hope, want, plan, would like to and try to elicit the meaning of TL from Ss. T writes the meaning on WB and drills TL. T again asks CCQs for "looking forward to" and then tries to elicit the meaning from Ss and writes it on WB and drill TL with Ss. T also does drilling individually. Lastly, T asks CCQs for "be going to" and elicits the meaning from Ss. T writes the meaning and also the form of TL end elicits negative and question forms. T drills TL. T also explains how present continuous tense also can be used when people talk about their future plans.

Test #2 (5-5 minutes) • Check students' use of the target language again and compare with the first test

T asks Ss to do the Grammar ex.1 (Individual work) and Ss make correct sentences with the words in the table. ICQs need to be done. T monitors and assists if necessary. Once Ss have finished, they can check their answers with their partners. T gets the answers from Ss.

Speaking Stage (6-7 minutes) • To provide an opportunity to practice their speaking skill on TL

T changes the partner and gives them HO that has got 4 topics on it: A place you hope to visit one day Something you're looking forward to A person you'd like to meet one day Something you are going to do this weekend Ss answer the questions first. Then they ask questions to their partner and writes their answers down. Ss swap partners and tell their new partners about their original partner. T monitors and assists Ss if necessary. At the end of session T writes one sentence for each question on WB

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

Ss all mingle around with the questions that they worked on at "speaking stage" and ask them to different people. As Ss talk, T monitors and focuses on TL. When/if she hears any mistakes makes a note. After Ss chatting to each other, T asks a few of them what they find out about the person they speak to. T does the error correct at the end on WB.
