Amazing Stories
intermediate level


In This lesson, Ss will get to learn about amazing stories and their different genre: the lesson starts with a discussion where ss get to look at pictures and divide them into different genre then share with each other the ones they like or dislike. T teach target language (MPF) then ss go through a list of ss and divide them into like, dislike and neutral then get to fill in the gap with the correct words taught during the MPF. Finally, a free practice would happen where ss have to pick a random picture in groups then talk about it using the new target language.
