Teaching Practice 4
Elementary (A2) level


In this lesson, students will practise making affirmative and negative forms of present simple and ask yes/no questions with 'you' through the context of free time activities. This is followed by controlled practice in which they can express their peers' free time activities using the personal pronoun (he/she). Finally, there is a semi-controlled practice in which students make phrases (verb-noun collocation). This will be followed by phrase drilling activity to improve their pronunciation and word stress.
