Traveling verbs and phrases
To introduce and practice traveling verbs and phrases (travel by/on) in the context of daily transportation.
To provide clarification of transport lexis like prepositions in the context of daily transportation.
Procedure (39-12 minutes)
The learners will answer the next question "How do you travel every day?" in order for them to have an idea that this lesson will be about transportation, I will provide my example (how I travel every day) and I will give them a written prompt to follow (ex. I usually travel by____) so they can answer the question.
In this section students will listen the audio for he first time, the audio is about a new's reporter who is interviewing people on how they usually travel to work and on how they are traveling today. After listening the audio, students will answer the first task (gist) matching pictures and they will answer the second task (intensive task) choosing the correct information. Both tasks will be answered individually, after answering, they will go into breakout rooms to check their answers with a peer, and then we will check the answers together and I will give some feedback.
Students will learn new ways of use of prepositions (by, on, in), covering meaning, form and pronunciation. This will help students to communicate in a correct way to express their ideas about transport, achieving the main aim "To introduce and practice traveling verbs and phrases (travel by/on) in the context of daily transportation". After learning these prepositions and when to use them, students will know how to answer the next tasks and questions.
In this section students will answer the task by filling the gaps with the correct words and prepositions the five sentences require. The learners will do this individually and then check in pairs, we will check the answers all together after and I will give some feedback. With this activity I will check that students have understood the concepts (lexis and verbs) so they can answer the freer practice.
Here, students will have the chance to practice what they learnt by answering some questions (all together) about the audio and about their experiences for example "Are there any trains today?", "Have you been on a train before?", "When did she leave home?", "What time did you usually leave your house before covid-19?"...etc. I will monitor and make notes of any errors with the TL, I will correct them by writing their mistake on the jamboard with the correct form with some feedback.
