Main Aims

  • To introduce and provide clarification on the meaning, form and pronunciation of infinitive pronouns ( something, everyone, somewhere, everywhere, nobody, anything, everything) in a context of traveling.

Subsidiary Aims

  • By the end of the lesson, learners will have practice in a controlled and freer task.


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

T shows a picture of traveling objects. T asks the question: Are you a traveler person? T shows a Tokyo picture. T asks the question: Would you like to travel to Tokyo. Yes/No Why? What things are important to consider when you decide to travel? T elicits some ideas. Learners work in pairs in breakout rooms and discuss. T conducts OCFB.

Exposure (6-8 minutes) • To provide context for the target language through a listening.

T provides the task learners have to complete. T gives instructions: While you listen to the audio I am going to play, choose the correct word from the box to complete the sentences. T gives 30 seconds to give a quick look at the sentences. T provides the audio. Learners answer individually. Learners check answers in pairs ( 2 min) T conducts OCFB.

Clarification (10-14 minutes) • To clarify the meaning, form and pronunciation of the target language

T guides learners in order to discover the rules of the target language by asking them questions. * Can you tell me what did you notice these words have in common? some/one; every/all; no/none * Just to review: Do we use the ending -body/one for people? where for places? the thing for objects? T checks understanding of the meaning by asking the question: Can we say that indefinite pronouns are used to talk about people, places, or things without saying exactly who, where, or what they are? Yes T highlights pronunciation, drilling. T elicits the form: T confronts the learners to the sentences, *What numbers are examples of affirmative sentences? T demos *What members are examples of negative sentences? T demos T elicits the rules We use somebody/one, something, somewhere, everybody/one, everything, everywhere in affirmative sentences. We use anybody/one, anything, anywhere in negative sentences and questions. Nothing, nowhere, and nobody/one, have a negative meaning but the verb is the positive form.

Controlled Practice (10-12 minutes) • To practice the target language in a controlled exercise.

T gives the link to Janboard to open it and to listen for instructions. T sets the gap-filling task. Instructions: *Choose the correct word from the box to complete the sentences. Learners answer individually. Learners check answers in pairs. T conducts to OCFB.

Free Practice (5-5 minutes) • To produce the language in a freer exercise.

Instructions: Imagine that when the pandemic ends, you have the opportunity to travel because you won an amount of money. Where, with whom, and what would you do? T models T gives a minute to think about it. Learners share in pairs. T conducts OCFB.
