No materials added to this plan yet.

Main Aims

  • To provide practice of language used for making offers in the context of parties.

Subsidiary Aims

  • To provide fluency speaking practice in a role play in the context of party.


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

I will show photos of parties and ask the students to describe each.

Exposure (5-7 minutes) • To provide context for the target language through a text or situation

The students will read a dialogue alone. Then write a summary of what the dialogue is talking about in their private breaker room. We will discuss as a group what they thought the dialogue was about.

Clarification (8-12 minutes) • To clarify the meaning, form and pronunciation of the target language

I will show the meaning, form and pronunciation of three sentences containing an offer, a rejection, and an acceptance of offers.

Controlled Practice (8-10 minutes) • To concept check and prepare students for more meaningful practice

This practice will contain a role play. I will put the students in breaker rooms where they are at a party. They will then offer to help one another using the provided language. Then they will either refuse the offer or accept the offer using the provided language. Once back from the rooms we will discuss who was a helpful person at the party.

Free Practice (6-8 minutes) • To provide students with free practice of the target language

Students will be put into breaker rooms to plan a party together. They will use the days dialogue to tell where they would help one another putting the party together. They will discuss: Decide what kind of party. Decide who will come to the party. Decide every detail: where, what kind of food, what kind of drinks, the color of the decorations, any costumes?, what time, list of needed items. Then offer to help each other in different ways, refuse and accept offers.
