Getting acquainted
A1 level


In this lesson I am going to teach asking personal information questions e.g. Where are you from originally? What's your father like? and also giving answers to these questions. Especially I am going to try to ensure that the students can generate the questions in the correct form. The students can be aware of asking Yes-No Questions from the previous lesson. So, to check to what extent they have learned these forms, I'll start the lesson by making them ask me questions about the person on the board. The following stages of the lesson will continue with Controlled, Semi-Controlled, and Free Practices.
