Pre-Intermediate level


In this lesson, learners will be introduced and will practice the second conditional in the context of talking about unreal and imaginary situations. The lesson will start with a reference from the song 'Imagine' by John Lennon and students will discuss some ideas about it. Next, they will do a test in order to show their previous knowledge of the topic. Through guided discovery, the teacher will clarify MFP. Finally, there will be a second test (controlled and freer practice) in which the teacher can check students' understanding. At the end of the lesson, there will be time for Delayed Error Correction.
