Abc Empower B2 Upper-Intermediate Student's Book

Main Aims

  • To provide clarification and practice of should have + past participle & third conditional in the context of dilemmas

Subsidiary Aims

  • To make students construct sentences with third conditional and "should have + past participle" easily.


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

First of all, T tries to elicit the word "regret". Then, T shows a slideshow in which there are some words related to regretful events and holds a class discussion about those images.

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

T shows two sentences taken from the audio they have listened to and asks related questions about these two sentences (p. 96). T asks Ss to look at those questions and find answers in pairs in the breakout rooms. T again shows two sentences in which Ss can see questions about "should have + past participle" and holds a class discussion about those sentences.

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

T gives details about how we form third conditional and clarifies important points about should have + past participle. Later, T uses some concept check questions and tries to answer any possible questions.

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

T asks Ss to do the activity a on p. 149 individually and then pair-check in the breakout rooms. For the activity b on the same page, after Ss do the exercise individually, they are shown the correct answers.

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

Ss are provided with a Padlet link in which they are going to write their biggest regret by using third conditional or "should have + past participle".
