No materials added to this plan yet.

Main Aims

  • To provide uncountable and plural noun usage accuracy with vocabulary related to travelling.

Subsidiary Aims

  • To provide clarification related to which nouns remain uncountable or which nouns should be plural related to the target language.


Lead-in (1-3 minutes) • To set lesson context and engage students

Students will begin the lesson viewing a Jamboard task covering relevant vocabulary answering the question "What do you usually bring on vacation?" Students will brainstorm the top 3 items using words that they can imagine without the visual cues. Desired maximum time: 2 minutes

Highlighting (4-7 minutes) • To draw students' attention to the target language

Next, the language will be further presented through the text via an adapted email with 3 questions administered via Google Forms. Learners will read and answer the questions individually. When they have finished, they will compare their answers in pairs. This will be followed by OCFB. Time: 5-7 minutes

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

Students will complete a collocation task using uncountable nouns selecting the noun that DOES NOT belong via Google Forms multiple choice questions (Clarification Phase 2.1). After, we will briefly discuss syllables and stress of syllables for the target language via Google Forms (Clarification Phase 2.3)

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

Students will confirm their understanding of countable, uncountable and plural nouns through a "Spot the errors" task taken from the original textbook material in the form of a quiz. Students will attempt to locate the errors individually, then will check their answers in pairs (if applicable) using the private messages in the chat box. This will be followed by OCFB and any questions will be answered here.

Free Practice (8-12 minutes) • To provide students with free practice of the target language

Students will discuss their answers to the Travelers Quiz in pairs, they will get prepared to share one interesting finding from listening to their partners answers to share with the group.
