Main Aims

  • To provide clarification of some quantifiers in the context of cash and card payments

Subsidiary Aims

  • To provide fluency speaking practice in a discussion in the context of cash and card payments


Warmer/Lead-in (3-5 minutes) • To set lesson context of cash and card payments and engage students

In the first stage I will ask the Ss only two questions: 1. When you go shopping, do you usually pay with cash or with your card? 2. In which situations or shops do you prefer to use your card? These questions personalize the topic which will help to engange the Ss. We will do this in a short open class discussion, but if necessary, I will nominate Ss.

Exposure (6-8 minutes) • To provide context for the target language through a text or situation

At the beginning the Ss will read the first paragraph only for gist and I will nominate one or two students to answer: What is this text about? Possible answer: It is about using the card instead of cash. Then the Ss will read the whole text carefully and answer 3 questions: EXAMPLE: How do you pay for your bus ticket in Sweden? / Answer: By card or mobile phone 1. What are the two benefits of using less cash in Sweden? 2. Which two groups of people do not agree with a cashless society? 3. What are the benefits of paying with a mobile phone in Kenya? Answer key: 1. you don’t need to carry too many coins and the number of bank robberies dropped 2. Elderly people (have difficulties with technology) and Small businesses (have to pay a fee for each card payment) 3. people don’t need to travel long distances to pay a bill (many people don’t have a bank account) and there is less danger of robbery (because people don’t carry too much cash) Task (individually): 4 min Peer check (if time allows): 2 min Feedback: 2 min

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

In the clarification stage Ss will discover meaning and form on their own. They will read the following sentences: 1. SOME businesses only take cards. 2. Buses don’t take ANY cash. 3. They no longer need to carry TOO MUCH cash. 4. You don’t like carrying TOO MANY coins in your pocket. 5. People save A LOT OF time. 6. In Kenya, only A FEW people have a bank account. 7. They have to pay A LITTLE money to the bank. 8. You don’t need to worry about having ENOUGH change for the bus. And they will answer the following questions (multiple choice): 1. The words in CAPITAL LETTERS are called quantifiers. Where in the sentence do we use them? 2. Look at sentences 1 & 2. When do we use SOME and when do we use ANY? 3. Look at the sentences 3 & 4. What is the difference? 4. Look at sentences 1, 2, 5 & 8. We _____ use A LOT OF / LOTS OF, SOME, ANY and ENOUGH with both countable and uncountable nouns. 5. Look at sentences 6 & 7. A FEW and A LITTLE mean a _____ amount or number. Answer key: 1. We use quantifiers before a noun to express how much of something there is. 2. any, some, any 3. We cannot count "cash". - correct / We can count "cash". - correct / We use (TOO) MANY before uncountable nouns. - incorrect / We use (TOO) MUCH before uncountable nouns. - correct 4. can 5. small Individual task: 4 min OCF and drilling: 3 min Clarification of differences: 2 min

Controlled Practice (5-6 minutes) • To concept check and prepare students for more meaningful practice

Ss will work with the following senteces to fill in the gaps (multiple choice): 1. I spent too _____ money on credit cards. 2. When I go out I just take _____ cash for what I need. 3. In a chashless society too _____ people would get into debt. 4. We can do things like give _____ coins to street performers. 5. Cash teaches children _____ lessons about the value of money. 6. I don’t see _____ practical reasons why we need cash. 7. It costs the government _____ money to produce coins. Asnwer key: 1. much 2. enough 3. many 4. a few 5. some 6. any 7. a lot of Individual task: 3 min Peer check (private chat box): 1 min OCF: 2 min

Free Practice (5-7 minutes) • To provide students with free practice of the target language

Ss will have the oportunity to practice speaking and get fluent. They will discuss in Break Out rooms the following questions: What do you spend your money on? What do you really enjoy spending money on? Do you use cash or your card more often? I will remind Ss to use the quantifiers learnt today. Discussions: 5 min Feedback: 2 min

Feedback and Delayed Error Correction (8-10 minutes) • To give feedback about the tasks and correct some errors

In the last stage I will clarify questions and point out good language usage and will correct some errors from earlier lesson stages. I will use the Whiteboard in ZOOM for the DEC.
