TP 6
Upper-Intermediate level


In this lesson, the students get to review different forms used in English to talk about the future. Since students are already familiar with these forms, a test - teach - test approach is to be used with this lesson. The lesson begins with a simple test where students match different examples with their uses. This is then followed by teaching those items that students have trouble with. After that, another test follows the teaching stage to assure that students have understood the target language.
