Teaching Practice 2
A1 (Beginner) level


In this lesson, students will improve their vocabulary and speaking ability. The lesson will start with learning colours and then there will be a slide show presentation to teach the students colours of the flags and nationalities. After the slide show, students will play a matching game in small groups to practice the vocabulary they learned. Also, I will give them handouts to do this matching practice again but they will do it individually to test their understanding. Moreover, we will focus on the stress of the nationalities. Lastly, they will do a speaking activity to use nationalities.
