No materials added to this plan yet.

Main Aims

  • To provide practice of language for 'get', as well as its collocations and diverse uses.

Subsidiary Aims

  • To clarify the appropriate use of 'get' in different scenarios so that the Ss may use it in any way they might require.


Lead-in (1-2 minutes) • To set lesson context and engage students

Is it safe to assume that you [the students] know the word 'get'? Could any of you define 'get' for me?

Test #1 (8-10 minutes) • To gauge students' prior knowledge of the target language

The Ss, via Google Forms, shall match three sentences with what they believe are the most appropriate meanings for each collocation of 'get'. Then I'll ask for three volunteers to explain the reasoning behind their respective choices.

Teach/Practice (15-20 minutes) • To clarify areas of the target language where students had difficulty in the first test stage

Following this, we shall be covering Meaning, Form and Pronunciation of get using GS. As this shall be short, due to the simple nature of the TL, it will be followed by answering and discussing the following questions in BR (two per group): -When was the last time you got a present? What was it? Who was it from? -Would you like to get fitter? What do you think you should do? -What website do you use if you want to get tickets a) to travel b) for the cinema/theatre/concerts? -Who do you get on with best in your family? Is there anybody you don't get on with? -How do you get to work/school? How long does it usually take you? -What 's the first thing you do when you get home from work/school? -Do you have a good sense of direction, or do you often get lost? -How many emails or text messages do you get a day? Are they most ly from friends? Do you usually reply immediately? If there is time after this activity, one member of each group shall share with the group if they could observe different uses of 'get'.

Test #2 (10-20 minutes) • Check students' use of the target language again and compare with the first test

The final activity we'll be having consists of the Ss matching different collocations of 'get' with their corresponding images. Immediatly followed by a small audio to check the answers and listen to Pronunciation. The phrases the students must match are: -get angry -get divorced -get fit -get lost -get married -get nervous [this is the example]. -get better -get colder -get worse -get a job -get a newspaper -get a ticket -get on/off a bus -get on (well) with -get up -get home -get to school -get to work -get an email -get a present -get a (text) message
