Present Continuous Tense
Procedure (26-43 minutes)
A handout which includes pictures will be given to students. I'm going to ask them some questions like: where are the people? What actions do you see ? Talk, listen, run....and elicit sentence as much as possible.
At this stage I'm going to mime some actions for example walk and ask them am I walking or running and get students involved answering questions By asking some questions, I will make student understand the difference between simple present and present continuous.
At the clarification part, I will write a sentence on the board and explain the forms of the grammar (negative.positive) and ask them to repeat the sentences chorally, and I will change the pronouns, so they have to say the right form. He is swimming, I = I am swimming
At this stage I will put students in a pair, and they have to talk about their family members like what are they doing right now ?
After talking about their family now, I will ask each pair what her/his partner's family members are doing now.
