Indefinite pronouns
Intermediate level


In this lesson, students will learn more about indefinite pronouns and will be given practice questions for drilling. The students will listen to a short recording on indefinite pronouns and will then answer some questions to test their knowledge and understanding. The students will then share their answers and make sure they are on the right track. They will be given sentences and paragraphs to check their understanding of indefinite pronouns. They will also be placed in pairs and given a scenario that they have to act out using the indefinite pronouns.

Main Aims

  • Teach the students the different indefinite pronouns and when each is used correctly.
  • Use listening skills to have them practice which words are grammatically incorrect within the context.

Subsidiary Aims

  • To provide fluency and accuracy when performing a skit with their group members using the correct indefinite pronouns.


Warmer/Lead-in (3-5 minutes) • To set lesson context and engage students

I will start the lesson by having them choose a place or person that they can talk about briefly. I will try to elicit from them what they know about indefinite pronouns.

Exposure (8-10 minutes) • To provide context for the target language through a text or situation

Students will provide the correct answers in writing to the sentences they will be given. The sentences have incorrect indefinite pronouns.

Highlighting (2-4 minutes) • To draw students' attention to the target language

Have the students repeat the indefinite pronouns and make sure they pronounce them correctly.

Clarification (8-10 minutes) • To clarify the meaning, form and pronunciation of the target language

Show the students sentences that are incorrect and have them explain to me why they are incorrect and how to correct them.

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

I will show them a picture and have them fill out the missing text (indefinite pronouns) from the paragraph underneath it. They will have a list of words that they can use to fill out the blanks.

Semi-Controlled Practice (8-10 minutes) • To concept check further and prepare students for free practice

The students will be given True and False sentences. They will all be given a chance to read them out loud to the class and then they will share their answers with one another.

Free Practice (8-10 minutes) • To provide students with free practice of the target language

Have the students perform short skits from a topic they chose from the list given to them. This will test their knowledge of which indefinite pronouns should be used.
