Warmer/Lead-in (1-4 minutes) • To set lesson context and engage students

I will start the lesson by putting a picture of New Year's fireworks to elicit the topic from the Ss. Then, I will ask Ss to tell me, "What did you do at the New year?" We will discuss the answers in OC.

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

I will tell the Ss to listen to three recordings about people speaking of future arrangements during the New Year. They have to match the topics to the correct recording using GS. After that, we will discuss the answers together in OC. Then, they will listen to the same recording, but this time they have to listen for details to fill in the gaps with the correct forms of verbs for 2-3 minutes. After they finish, I will ask them to discuss answers by private chat for a minute. Finally, we are going to check out the answers together.

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

In this stage, I will cover the meaning, form, and pronunciation of the present continuous for future events. For the meaning: I will show ss three sentences containing plans for the future. 1. My sister is having a party tomorrow night. 2. I am flying to New York next month. 3. My mum is helping me make a cake tomorrow. I will draw a timeline where they tell or mark themselves on the timeline where these events happened. I will check their understanding of the meaning by asking them for the first sentence: Will my sister be free tomorrow night? no she won't The second sentence: Am I in New York now? now i am not The third sentence: Am I going to see my mum tomorrow? yes i am We will discuss this as a whole class. For the form, I will put a barcode of the game ( kahoot ) and ask the Ss to scan this one and enter the game they will answer the questions from their phones. The questions are : Choose the correct structure for the following sentences: 1. My sister is having a party tomorrow's night The answer: Subject +verb to be + (verb+ing) +complement. 2. I am flying to New York next month. The answer: Subject+ verb to be + (Verb+ ing) + complement. 3. My mum is helping me make a cake tomorrow. The answer: Subject + verb to be + (verb + ing) + complement. After they submit each answer, we will discuss if there is any misunderstanding. For the pronunciation: I will ask the students to do an activity where they should choose the correct verb to fit the context. After the finish, I will choose three sentences and play a recording for each sentence and ask them to identify where are the stressed words.
