I'll start this class by showing the Ss a picture of a house Which I want to rent. I'll tell them a story contains the context of how much and many. I'll revise Ss information about countable and uncountable nouns.Then, I'll introduce 'How many / How much' to the Ss with countable and uncountable nouns..
Ss will put the cut-ups under the countable and uncountable columns, ask them to add more to the 2 categories. Then, the will decide what goes with the countable nouns (how many, or how much). The same will be for the uncountable nouns. After that, I‘ll remind Ss about ‘are there, is there ’. Ss will do ex 5 (controlled practice) in pairs. After that, they will change their partners and ask and answer the questionnaire looking for a surprising answer.

I'll model the first two exercises.Then, they will put the things in order. The answers will be checked with the whole class. ex 7 Ss need some time to read it. Then, they will listen again for details. Ss will work in pairs and check their answers. I'll take the FB.
