TP4- Grammar
Pre-Intermediate level


This is a grammar based lesson in which we will cover and practice the simple past. The lesson will begin with a discussion about TV habits. This is then followed by a listening audio exercise regarding facts about TV. Learners will then underline and identify target language as part of an intensive reading task. We will then cover MFP regarding the TL of the lesson. This will then be followed by controlled practice using Google Forms to allow the learners to practice the language individually before working together in pairs. Finally we will end the lesson with a communicative task, before going into Feedback and DEC.
