Upper intermediate level
Aims: To introduce and practice relative clauses
To provide gist listening practice using an audio Colombia is Passion
Procedure (45-59 minutes)
Begin with a question - What is something that you are passionate about?
Students will listen to a Colombia is Passion video where they have to listen for the gist. It also has many examples of relative clauses in the video. After the video we'll complete a worksheet with relative clauses.
The students will be introduced to the different relative pronouns and how they are formed from a worksheet related to the video Colombia is Passion.
Students will go over relative clauses and some examples of defining and non defining relative from the course book.
Students will do an activity individually within context of when they have to use defining and non-defining relative clauses. This will help them understand the context better.
Students will receive a relative clause and they have to come up with the rest of the sentence.
We will play a speaking game called taboo with a powerpoint presentation where one student must minimize the window so they can't see what I am projecting on Zoom. The other students describe the picture using relative clauses. The student that can't see what I am projecting has to guess what the other students are describing.
