LP- 25.05- First and second lessons
pre-intermediate level


In this lesson, students learn about Quantifiers; too/not enough through guided discovery based on a reading text about complainers. The lesson starts with a whole class discussion about complaining in a shop. This is followed by a reading text about the story in which students are exposed to the target language. Later, there is some controlled practice through a PPT game. Finally, for free practice, students need to prepare a shopping list in pairs.

Main Aims

  • To provide clarification and practice of quantifiers; too/not enough in the context of shopping complaints

Subsidiary Aims

  • To provide writing and speaking practice of quantifiers; too/not enough in the context of shopping list


Warmer/Lead-in (5-7 minutes) • To set lesson context and engage students

The teacher refers to the questions (1a) on the book and starts a whole class discussion. Then, ss are asked to discuss about activities 1b-1c in pairs. At the end whole class discussion is done.

Exposure (20-25 minutes) • To provide context for the target language through a text or situation

T shows Ss the title and pictures of the reading and asks what the text is about. Then T asks ss to read the text to check if their guess is correct or not. Ss are asked to read twice. Reading for the first time is for the gist and after reading ss are asked to answer a question on page 100. Reading for the whole text is for comprehension and ss are asked to answer 1 discussion questions by discussing with a partner. After that, for providing the context for the target language The teacher asks students to answer the following questions: 1. What do British shoppers complain about generally? 2. Why do some British shoppers prefer not to complain? When the sts find the answer individually, they compare their answers with their pairs and after that the T receives whole class feedback.

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

The teacher asks some CCQ's (2a) to clarify the meaning and form of the target structure. They analyse positive / negative and question forms by eliciting them from the sts as follows: 1- Does this mean more or less than normal? 2- Is it positive or negative? 3- Which one do we use with too+ nouns? much or many?

Controlled Practice (10-15 minutes) • To concept check and prepare students for more meaningful practice

Groups are divided into three. A golf game ppt is done for controlled practice. In case students need more practice, the students are then directed to page 161 and are asked to go through exercises A and D. The students then discuss their answers in pairs. Board race can be done to make the acticity more kinestetic. The teacher shows the AK and ask some CCQ's (in the form of a yes/no question) to consolidate the meaning and the form.

Free Practice (25-30 minutes) • To provide students with free practice of the target language

Ss are divided into pairs. One of the pairs is given a fridge picture to fill by drawing/writing foods while the other pair is asked to write a recipe for an easy dish. At the end, they discuss and create a shopping list according to the lack of food.
