In this lesson, learners will be practising indefinite pronouns such as everybody,somebody by doing some underlining exercises. Later on, they will do a listening task and a matching activity. Finally, they will be given a task which provides speaking on the related topic


Main Aims

  • To get the students speaking as fluently as possible without focusing on accuracy too much.

Subsidiary Aims

  • To check students understanding of pronouns such as anything, everything.


Warmer: Showing a video related to topic and eliciting. (0-10 minutes) • This part will help students both remember the vocabulary about the topic and have an overall idea about the grammar introduced.

I will show them a video about a party. There is a percussionist and other people are dancing. I will elicit the party vocabulary asking questions like: "What are they doing? Where are they? Who is playing an instrument? All of them? So do we know the person? (Somebody is playing/ not a specific person we know) (Showing a person) Is he sleeping? Is she? (Nobody is sleeping)" I won't show all indefinite pronouns with only one video. I will show extra other examples.

First task: Filling in the gaps projected on the WB (0-3 minutes) • Students will be practising the the indefinite pronouns.

A word page, on which pronouns are written, will be projected on the board. Some parts will be missing. I will make 6 groups as there are 6 gaps and tell them to discuss about the missing parts with their groups and then one person from each group will come and write the answers on the board. I will ask ICQs: Are you going to write or discuss? Are they about pronouns? How many gaps are there?

Second task: Underlining the correct pronoun (0-10 minutes) • To practice the indefinite pronouns

I will give hand outsto them and tell : There is a dialogue between Dylan and his Mum. You need to underline the correct pronoun. ICQ: Will you fill the gaps? Then we will listen to CD track and check the answers.

Acting out the dialogue. (0-2 minutes) • To practice the TL

They will have the same dialogue and I will tell the students to act out the dialogue with the correct pronouns with their partners. I will be monitoring them.

Listening task: Finding the missing question. (0-5 minutes) • This part will help the learners to listen for a specific purpose.

In this part, they will be given the questions from the course book, speaking part 1. I will tell them to listen to Paul talking about a fancy dress party he went to and find out which question he does not answer. ICQs: Does he answer all the questions? So will you find the missing one? They will check the answer with their partners.

Extention of listening task : Matching the answers. (0-5 minutes) • This will help the students to guess and remember the answers without listening first.

This time I will give them the answers as well and tell them to match with the questions. We will listen to the answers. ICQs: Will you listen first? Will you match them or write ? They will listen and check the answers.

Speaking task: Speaking about the topic. (0-10 minutes) • To make them speak as fluently as possible without worrying too much about the grammar.

They will talk about the party they have been to with their partners. I will tell them: This time you will talk to your partner about a party you've been to. Here we have the same questions we did before. I will give you some time to think your answers and take small notes of your answers. but don't write them. ICQs: Will you take notes? Will you have some time to think? Will you discuss them on your own?
