TP 3 Lesson 1 Lexis
To practice and revise extreme adjectives in the context of celebrations
To enable students to extend their lexical range as they start using extreme adjetives.
To enable students to practice their speaking skills by exchanging opinions and answers between each other.
To enable students to practice their reading comprehension skills, as they need to understand the context in which the extreme adjetives are used.
Procedure (35-45 minutes)
I will share my screen and put in context the students, so I'll ask them: "When was the last time you celebrated something?" also showing two pictures. I'll nominate 2 or 3 students.
I'll give students a handout with a transcription of a phone call, they'll read the TL in context because they are highlighted already, and they should answer some simple questions about the text. After that I'll introduce the concept of extreme adjetives.
I'll use the three highlighted words and elicit the meaning, form and pronunciation in the slides. So, they will get them very clearly and we will create some examples together.
I'll do a fill the gap activity with extreme adjetives, then they'll compare their ansers in BORs and then I'll show the correct ones.
I'll ask learners to prepare a short story about their last celebration, in which they have to use the TL and if they want, some new extreme adjetives of their own. I'll give them some time to think, then they'll go to BORs and come back to the main room to conduct feedback and share our experiences.
