In this lesson students will learn the difference between can and can't in the context of permission signs and holidays. There is a fine line between possibility and permission that is why I will teach both. I will do a TTT lesson to see how much the students know about this grammar. Then I will teach the MFP with some listening for the pronunciation at the end and then they will do a freer activity by making sentences and asking each other.
