Module 2: Lesson Frameworks - Uses of verb + ing
Upper-intermediate level


In this lesson, students learn about the verb + ing patterns in the context of Codes of conduct. The lesson starts with a discussion about their opinion on how Russian people appear to other cultures. This is followed by Test 1 where students complete a Google Form that shows some sentences that needed to be completed with a verb+ing. Next, the teaching stage will be provided according to what was monitored and students' needs. Later, Test 2 will be applied. Finally there is some freer practice through a speaking activity.
