Vocabulary- Homonyms & Homophones
Upper-Intermediate level

Description

In this lesson, students look at two important features of English: homonyms (word with the same spelling but different meanings) and homophones (word with the same pronunciation, but different spellings and meanings). Students are introduced with the most popular examples of these two features in the lead-in part. They are given two different activities and they share their answers in pairs. Following that, highlight and exposure are done through the examples in the lead-in. Students are directed controlled practice afterward. Finally, they do some production activity based on joke-telling, which these two features lend themselves often.

T elicits possible answers. T shows Slide 4 and explains it. T shows slide 5 and asks Ss to write the meanings of the words, working individually in two minutes.

T monitors Ss in the breakout rooms, helps and corrects them on the spot if necessary.

Exposure & Clarification (Homonyms) (0-5 minutes) • To provide clarification for the target language through the examples

T shows slide 8 and elicits Ss' answers for the word then shows slide 9. T does this for the other four words too, slides 10- 17. T shows Slide 18 and let Ss read the description and asks if they know this feature. T shows Slide 19 and drills the word.
