No materials added to this plan yet.

Main Aims

  • To introduce and provide practice of writing a short email (35-45 words) inviting friends (in another country) to visit them.

Subsidiary Aims

  • To provide clarification and practice of starting and finishing emails with semi-informal phrases (Hi Laura, How's it going, You're going to love this, etc.) in the context of a short email (invitationt to visit).


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

For this stage of the lesson, I am going to cue my Ss the following question as a lead-in: Who can we write an email to? I will have an open class discussion in order to give the Ss some exposure as to what we are going to be doing during the lesson.

Exposure (5-7 minutes) • To provide a model of production expected in coming tasks through reading/listening

Comprehension Show Presentation on screen share. Get Ss to read the e-mail in 2 mins. Where is Romeo inviting Laura to? ICQs: How much time do you have? (2 mins). What do you have to do? (Answer Q: Where is Romeo inviting Laura to? / What other things do I say? ). Ask Ss to submit answers and display responses. To come visit Mexico.

Useful Language (8-10 minutes) • To highlight and clarify useful language for coming productive tasks

Layout Display Jamboard task. The Ss will work through the email in pairs in order to check the useful language in the text. I am going to have them identify the correct expressions that a semi-informal email should contain. I am going to check pronunciation and stress with the following expressions: How's it going? /haʊz ɪt goʊ-ɪŋ/ You're going to love this! /ˈɡəʊɪŋ/ I will drill individually and chorally. Then, we will come back to the main session and check answers in open class. Next, the Ss will work in pairs to identify the different stages of the e-mail. Share link in chat and check Ss have access. Tell Ss they have 2 mins. to do this. Answers: 1. receiver 2. subject 3. greeting 4. introduction 5. body 6. conclusion 7. sign off

Productive Task(s) (16-18 minutes) • To provide an opportunity to practice target productive skills

During this part of the lesson, I am going to ask the students to write their own e-mails. Before they begin their writing, they will brainstorm ideas as to what they can recommend to each other about their country (specially where they live). They will use the language that we have previously seen with the model email. They are to work on the emails individually for 8 minutes through the Google presentation link I will provide. Once in the main session, I will have them go to the BORs in order to check each others work. They will correct any mistakes and talk about the checklist. After 3 minutes, I will bring them back to the main session.

Feedback and Error Correction (4-6 minutes) • To provide feedback on students' production and use of language

At this point of the lesson, I will have the Ss in the main session where we will do some error corrections. I will display any sentences with mistakes and elicit from the Ss where the mistake is at.
