Main Aims

  • To introduce and practise second conditional

Subsidiary Aims

  • To enable the students to speak each other and share their ideas using the TL


Warmer/Lead-in (4-5 minutes) • To engage students to the use of second conditional in specific current context speaking about the pandemic

In this lesson, students will be taught the second conditional using if clause and main clause in the context of "If...., I would/wouldn't" in daily situations with the following questions: 1. If the pandemic ended right now, what would you do? Before that, T. gives his opinion, shares his options to invite the Ss to do the same with other hypothesis -suggested by pictures- following the structure "If the pandemic ended right now, I would or I'd ....". They work in pair for 2 minutes, then collective sharing.

Exposure (7-8 minutes) • To provide a model of the task and highlight useful words and phrases

- Provide examples with second conditional to find in a short text. Students will find 2 consequences with "I would..." in one minute. Sharing. (2 minutes) What would I do if I won the Lottery? If I won the lottery... Wow! I would do so many things, and my life would be so different. I’d love the chance to change my life with the money. The first thing I would do is buy a big, new house. With all that money, I would buy anything I wanted, for example I would buy a new car. Or, I’d even buy a new motorcycle. I would probably give my money to a charity that helps sick children. Also, if any of my friends needed anything, I would help them pay for it. Plus, if I had a lot of money, I would certainly save some of it in the bank. - Intensive Task: Individual work. Complete the sentences of the two columns. Match 1-8 with a-i. (2.5 minutes) Individual work. Complete the sentences of the two columns. Match 1-8 with a-j. 1.If I inherited a zoo, 2.If I were a famous guitar player, 3.I would go to see ancient Rome 4.If I were a professional basketball player, 5.If I could fly, 6.I would be a translator 7.If I were animal, 8.If I were invisible, 9.If I inherited a fortune, 10.I would go for a pizza a I’d train a lot to be the best player in history like Michael Jordan b.

I would release all of the animals back into the wild g. if I spoke the languages ​​well h. if I could travel through time i. I’d travel to London and play in concerts j. I would be a cat - They compare their answers (2 minutes) - Collective check (1.5 minute)

Clarification MFP (10-12 minutes) • To provide clarification about 2nd Conditional

T will introduce the second conditional--would/wouldn't with explanation to Ss about use ---unreal situations/unlikely to happen/nearly impossible/improbable. (0 - 1% chance). Examples: 1. Hypothetical condition & its possible result 2. for unreal possibility (or nearly) 3. for an advice Structure: If + I + past simple, I + would (I'd) + verb base form Note: The two clauses can be switched with comma removed. Ss will pair up and answer some questions about Form. Pronunciation: Linking and primary stress. Drill and repeat PROCEDURE If I had more time, I’d do more exercise Meaning: Hypothetical condition & its possible result CCQs: have I enough time to do exercise? is a hypothetical situation? is it possible for me now to do more exercise? If I won the lottery, I would buy a car. Meaning: for unreal possibility (or nearly) CCQs: Is it possible to win? Are we thinking about a particular condition in the future or in the past? If I were you, I wouldn’t take that job. CCQs: is it an advice/a suggestion or an order/an imposition? Form: If+subject+verb ____, subject+ would (’d) + verb _____ ? ? ? ? Work in pairs . Questions: If I had more time, I’d do more exercise find the subjects: what verb is had? what is “would” (‘d)? what verb is “do” If I won the lottery, I would buy a car. find the subjects: what verb is won? what is “would” (‘d)? what verb is “buy”? Look at these sentences: If I had more time, I’d do more exercise I’do more exercise if I had more time: CCQs: is there a difference between the two sentences in the meaning? is there a difference in the form? the if-clause can…. would/wouldn’t is…. Pronunciation: * * * If I had more time, I’d do more exercise ɪf aɪ hæd mɔː taɪm, aɪd duː mɔːr ˈɛksəsaɪz * * * I would do more exercise if I had more time aɪ wʊd duː mɔːr ˈɛksəsaɪz ɪf aɪ hæd mɔː taɪm

Controlled Practice (8-10 minutes) • To use TL in an accurate way in the context of immaginary/irreal/future situations

T will give Ss more sentences with hypothetical situation and students will choose the correct option to complete them. Instruction and example: 1 minute. Individual activity. (3 minutes) Examples 1. If you _______younger, you _______ chemistry - were _____ would study - would be ___________studied Check in pairs/groups.(2 minutes) Collective check of the answers.(2 minutes)

Language Practice (8-10 minutes) • To provide students with fluent practice of the second conditional in specific and diverse contexts

In pairs. They will ask each other: What would you do... T. provides 3 pictures and Ss will speak with each other to give at least an answer for each situation suggested by the pictures. - instructions: 1 minute - speaking in pairs/groups: 2 minutes - Feedback: 2 minutes - DEC: 3 minutes
