Pre-Intermediate level


In this lesson, students learn about 1st conditional ("if" clause) through guided discovery (GD). Basically, a grammar lesson where students would be exposed to the 1st conditional different structures and then through practice sessions, they would be given chance to use the same in their own context.


No materials added to this plan yet.

Main Aims

  • To provide clarification of Example: 1st conditional ("if" clause) in the context of Surroundings

Subsidiary Aims

  • To provide accuracy speaking practice in a Example: 1st conditional ("if" clause) in the context of Experiences


Warmer/Lead-in (3-5 minutes) • To set lesson context and engage students

I'll show some images of 1st conditional to my learners and tell them what they understand by this Images and 1st conditional sentences mentioned there. This would open them up about the main idea and they would be exposed & engaged into this topic of conditional statement.

Highlighting (7-9 minutes) • To draw students' attention to the target language

I'll arrange some fill-in the blanks sentence with 1st conditional, where the 1st one has been answered to set the tone. Then i'll ask my students to answer the others, probably I would nominate, that would ensure thorough engagement, also learners would be fully aware about the 1st conditional. I'll do it after MFP clarification.

Clarification (8-10 minutes) • To clarify the meaning, form and pronunciation of the target language

Meaning: I'll ask students some CCQs for ss to identify the meaning. (If I come here, mom will be happy) 1> When are these actions referring to? (Future) 2> Do I know when it will happen in future? (No) Form: I'll ask my ss the different components of the 1st conditional If+ noun+ verb+ (main clause) If Pablo comes here, he will bring his family Pronunciation: I'll read the sentence out loud and ask ss to identify where in the sentence stress falls. e.g. If Pablo comes here, he will bring his family, stress is on If Pablo and He I'll ask them to drill chorally.

Controlled Practice (10-12 minutes) • To concept check and prepare students for more meaningful practice

I'll ask ss to order scrambled sentences forming 1st conditional. e.g. 1> I/ send a postcard / I (/ have time= 1>I’ll send you a postcard if I have time I'll share with them the google Jam board with this exercise so that they can go to the BOR and do the activity individually and then discuss with their peer.

Free Practice (10-12 minutes) • To provide students with free practice of the target language

I'll ask my Ss to go to the BOR and ask their peers 5 questions with 1st conditional and elicit corresponding responses with 1st conditional. Again, google jam board will be shared to them so that they can work on this. Example: Questions: What will happen if your laptop crashes? Answer: If my laptop crashes, I might not/won’t continue my studies.

Delayed Error Correction (5-7 minutes) • To focus on the areas of concern/opportunities found while teaching my students

I'll present those sentences/pronunciations/form errors that they make on the session, without naming anybody, so that the learning becomes wholesome.
