Elementary level


In this lesson, the students learn about the 3rd person through a guided text based on a reading text of someone's daily routine. The lesson starts with eliciting the verbs, followed by a text reading where students read and relate texts of someone's routine. It ends with a controlled speaking through sentence reformulation and free practise via a final role playing speaking activity.
