Elementary level


No materials added to this plan yet.

Main Aims

  • By the end of the lesson, sts will have been practiced simple present (positive & negative) in the context of "things I love in Britain."

Subsidiary Aims

  • By the end of the lesson, sts will have been practiced reading skills.


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

The lesson is about Britain, so I'll srart the session by asking sts about Egypt to get them to speak up by asking simple Qs such as: What things do you like/don’t like about Egypt? After that, I'll present some pictures of Britain and ask them what is it and what they know about it/its people.

Exposure (3-5 minutes) • To ensure that sts are comfortable with the text before exploiting it for language

1- I'll clarify the meaning of the word "pub" using the MPF method as it will be mentioned in the text. 2- I'll introduce a new task, which is "true or false". Sts will be given 4 sentences about British people and they have to guess if they are true or not. The sentences are: a- British people drink tea at 5.00. b- It rains a lot in Britain. c- British people like animals. d- The food in Britain isn’t very good. 3- Sts are going to read the text to check their answers. CCQ: Are you going to read quickly or carefully? How much time do you have to read the text?

Highlighting (2-3 minutes) • To highlight the target language in the context

I will try to elicit the tense from the sts. Qs: Which tense is used in the text? (present) - How do we know it's the present? (from the verbs) I will then ask them to underline the verbs in the present tense.

Language Clarification (3-5 minutes) • To provide clarification of the meaning, form, pronunciation of the TL

I will use 2 marker sentences to clarify the meaning, pronunciation and form of the simple present using timelines. Sentence 1: I drink tea every morning. CCQs: Is it something I do everyday? Is it a habit? Sentence 2: The plane leaves at 4:00 on Friday. CCQs: Does this happen at the same time every Friday? Is it a timetable? I will then highlight the form (+ & -), then the pronunciation (ex. final s)

Practice (6-8 minutes) • To allow students to report on how they did the task and how it went

Controlled practice: "Looking for a flatmate" you are looking for a flatmate, you're going to interview two friends to decide who will be your flatmate. Freer-practice: Sts will try to find classmates with whom they have things in common, both + and - Instructions: You're going to find out what you and your classmates have in common. Think of some facts about yourself, such as things you like/don't like or can/can't do.

Feedback (1-8 minutes) • To praise good use of TL to correct in TL use

Feedback is given according to sts' performance throughout the lesson.
