CELTYL Lesson 5
Elem. Ages 8-9 level


The focus on this lesson will be teaching the numbers 1-20 and the structure How many? The vocabulary will have been taught by the previous teacher so there won't be much new vocabulary taught. However I will be teaching pronunciation and word stress. The main focus of the lesson is listening.
