Teaching Practice 4b
Pre-Intermediate level


In this lesson, students learn the Present Perfect Time. The lesson starts from reading the text about amusement parks in the context of leisure. In this text there is one sentence used in Present Perfect. This sentence will help the teacher to move from reading to grammar. Then the students will listen to two records that will help them to pronounce some irregular verbs in Participle II correctly. Finally, the students will do some speaking exercises, which will combine new vocabulary, grammar and the topic of leisure.
