Vocabulary: Make and Do
Upper-intermediate class level
To provide clarification of Make and Do in the context of daily life (activities,plans, tasks, building etc..)
To provide clarification about do and make collocations; avoid common translation mistakes from L1 to L2 regarding these two verbs
Procedure (45-55 minutes)
In the pre-teaching stage, I will try to apply eliciting, CCQ to help students get the big picture about Make and Do.
I will display two big lists about activities, expectations, repetitive tasks, products, results and ask them to find differences, which one goes with do and which one goes with make I want to guide students through this task to find out themselves the rule about when to use make and when to use do
The first audi will present a set of conversations that have different situations of differents people: personalize the context in which these two verbs are used
We will have a second listening task,in which students are required to do matching; these bits of audio are taken from real life scenarios, in which people express their requests, complaints, suggestions etc..I believe this will help students to apply the use of make and do in real life context.
THis is something that will be provided throught the lesson and definitely the last section of the lesson will help me to identify whether students get it right or not. (Did they manage to get the meaning and use of each collocation)
