Teaching Practice TP 2 -- Grup D
B1 level


In this lesson, students review and practice subject and object questions. The class starts with a few examples to define what the object/subject of a sentence is and a brief explanation on how subject and object questions are formed. This is followed by Ex 1, 2 and 3 from page 12 of Global Intermediate , conducted as groupwork or pairwork. Finally, a worksheet where the students have to form subject/object questions in pairs and answer each other's questions is presented. This will be followed by a short feedback session on the TL.


Main Aims

  • To provide Ss with clarification, review and practice of subject and object questions through the context of culture.

Subsidiary Aims

  • To give Ss practice in speaking for accuracy and fluency.


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

Using the whiteboard, put up a few simple sentences and elicit from the students which words are the subject and object in the sentence. Later, put up a chart on the WB about the formation of subject and object questions (in present simple and past simple) . By nominating or on a volunteer basis, turn the sentences on the board to object and subject questions.

Exposure (8-10 minutes) • To provide context for the target language through a text or situation

Students are asked to form groups of four and look at Reading and Speaking exercise 4 from the previous lesson on Australia and its culture and work together to find the subject questions in this exercise. This is followed by brief FB.

Highlighting (2-4 minutes) • To draw students' attention to the target language

Ss are asked to make questions for the sentences provided in Exercise 2 on page 12, Global Intermediate. Students work individually following an example. Later, they check their answers with their partner, followed by open class FB.

Clarification (8-10 minutes) • To clarify the meaning, form and pronunciation of the target language

Studenst are given two handouts (Adapted from pages 12 and 130 of Global Intermediate). They have to read questions to each other and see if they can remember the answers. This should help with clarifying the meaning of the TL.

Controlled Practice (8-10 minutes) • To concept check and prepare students for more meaningful practice

Students are given different handouts (Worksheet from Global Intermediate Teacher’s Resource Disc (Macmillan Publishers Limited 2011). They have to form subject/object questions, ask questions to their partner and answer questions asked by their partner.

Semi-Controlled Practice (3-5 minutes) • To wrap up what has been leaerned in lesson

Feedback on the previous activity, goving over the form/meaning of the questions on the worksheet.
