Teaching Practice 5
Beginner level


In this lesson, students will practise how to make '-Wh Questions' in the Simple Present Tense. They will learn the meanings of the question words first. They will ask questions within the context, match the questions words with appropriate words. Then they will work on a handout in which they will be supposed to put the words in correct order to make questions. It will be followed by drilling. After drilling, they will be given another handout and they will make questions by adding 'do' after the '-wh question word''. They will write answers for these questions and ask the questions to each other. For the final activity, they will be given role play cards and speak with different students in the class.
