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

T shows pictures of different activities and Ss in groups guess what is the age restriction for each one. They also have to say how it is in their countries. T models one answer with an example. Instructions: Discuss the following questions. T provides OCFB.

Exposure (5-7 minutes) • To provide context for the target language through a text or situation

Ss read a text about age restrictions in England, and do a true/false activity. Instructions: Read the text and answer true or false. Justify the false one(s). T gives an example with the first one and shares link to Google docs with the text and activity. Ss compare answers in pairs. T conducts OCFB, showing the answers.

Clarification (10-12 minutes) • To clarify the meaning, form and pronunciation of the target language

T shares a Quizizz activity where Ss learn about MPF(A) in a student-centred way. T demos one part as an example. Instructions: Enter the link and do the activities. Disable sounds please. Ss do the Quizizz activity (answers provided immediately after they choose). T conducts OCFB.

Controlled Practice (5-6 minutes) • To concept check and prepare students for more meaningful practice

T shares a Google Forms link with an filling-the-gap activity where there's one extra word/phrase. T demos the first one. Ss do the activity individually and check in breakout rooms. Instructions: Fill in the gaps. There's one extra word/phrase. T conducts OCFB showing the answers.

Free Practice (8-10 minutes) • To provide students with free practice of the target language

Ss group to discuss some questions about what rules would they make if they were presidents. T suggests Ss some words or phrases they can use. Demos one example. Instructions: Discuss what rules would you establish if you were president. T conducts OCFB and asks what ideas were most interesting.

Delayed Error Correction (2-5 minutes) • To provide feedback on Ss mistakes and good points.

T designs an activity in which Ss enter to choose the correct form, meaning and pronunciation of words/phrases they've mistaken during their conversations. Instructions: Please enter this form and complete with the correct option.
