To practice adverbs of frequency in the context of television and films
To practice writing skills by preparing questions
To practice speaking by discussing of television and films
Procedure (45 minutes)
The Ss will do a matching activity 1 from the coursebook, in which they will match 5 different sentences about adverbs of frequency (always, often, sometimes, not often and never) with the correct sentences. The correct answers will be checked as a WC.
The T will write 3 model sentences on the board: 1) They are (always) late. 2) I don't (not often) watch the news. 3) I (never) watch comedy programmes. The adverbs T will elicit from the Ss. T introduces the grammatical rules: subject + adverb + verb (usual order) subject + verb + adverb (with be)
The T will divide the Ss in to 2 or 3 groups (depends on the amount of Ss present) and give them adverbs on paperslips. In a group the Ss will discuss and decide where the adverbs go on a "scale". The Ss will go to WB and put them in a correct order in their opinion and the correct order will be checked as a WC.
The Ss will do a gap-fill individually. The sentences are: 1) I (always) watch the news. 2) I (never) watch sports. 3) I (often) watch documentaries. 4) I (sometimes) watch horror films. 5) I don't (often) watch TV. T will give the answers to the Ss as a handout.
The Ss will each write 3 questions related to television and film habits by using TL (for example: Do you often watch documentaries?)
The Ss will go around the classroom and ask each other questions, which they prepared in the previous stage.
The T will do error correction on the WB with incorrect sentences that the Ss have made during the lesson. If they haven't made any the T has ready-made (assumed errors) that the WC will try to correct together. Ready-made sentences: 1) I don't never watch the news. 2) I don't not often watch the documentaries. 3) I sometimes go to school.
