A vocabulary lesson with a focus on MFP. Working on words used when on holiday.


Main Aims

  • To provide clarification and practice of common vocabulary in the context of a vacation/holiday

Subsidiary Aims

  • To improve confidence in lexis


Warmer/Lead-in (3-4 minutes) • To set lesson context and engage students

I will ask the students to state what is pictured in the 3 photos then I will ask the question "What are the good things and bad things the could happen on holiday?"

Exposure (7-8 minutes) • To provide context for the target language through a text or situation

I will introduce the two words Brochure and Postcard by choosing a student to read for the class the definition on the slide. Then I will highlight that brochure is formal and related to organizations or businesses and the Postcards are informal ways of communicating with family and friends. I will send the google form and tell them they have 2 min to fill it out. Then they will check answers via DM if there is time, otherwise I will skip to OC feedback. Answers: BPPPBBPPBBPB

Clarification (12-15 minutes) • To clarify the meaning, form and pronunciation of the target language

I will go through the next 5 slides pointing out and asking students to read definitions, tell wether the vocabulary is countable and what form it is. I will also do choral practice for pronunciation.

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

The students will fill out the google form I send in chat and then they will check their answers with a partner via DM then we will go over the responses as a class Answers: sightseeing, excursions, nightlife, scenery, accommodations

Free Practice (8-9 minutes) • To provide students with free practice of the target language

I will introduce the question "which of these are most important to you on holiday?" I will then lead the students to specifically use the words that we worked on when answering this question. I will send the words in chat so they can us them while they are in breakout rooms. Then they will be brought back to the main room and I will provide feedback.
