Parler d'un problème
A1 level


in this part of the lesson, the learners will practice talking about or describing common house problems. they will also try to offer solutions. the context has already been set with a listening task in which they listened to three conversations about house problems and solutions. As a result, I will continue the lesson by drawing their attention to the useful expressions and words used in the aforementioned conversations. Then they will use them to complete another dialogue between 2 people in order to make sure that they have understood well. Finally, they will try to prepare a conversation for describing the problem they face at their house and offer a possible solution.

Main Aims

  • To provide fluency and accuracy speaking practice in a conversation in the context of problems at house

Subsidiary Aims

  • To provide review and practice of words for describing a problem in your house and words for offering solutions


Warmer/Lead-in (1-2 minutes) • To set lesson context, activate their background knowledge and engage students

This stage has already been done. At the beginning of the lesson, I told the Ss that I'm sad because I have a problem in my house. I showed a picture and asked them to try to explain my problem.

Exposure (3-6 minutes) • To provide context for the target language through a listening task

This stage has also been done. The Ss listened to three conversations about 'describing a problem in the house'. They answered the questions of part A on page 112 of Èdito A1 hence they are now familiar with the context and learned words related to the context.

Highlighting (2-3 minutes) • To draw students' attention to the target language

My micro-demo starts from this stage. I show slide 2 and say: Vous avez écouté les trois dialogues. Maintenant, en utilisant le tableau complétez les phrases I wiil try to elicit the target laguage and will tell them : Écrivez vos réponses dans le chat

Controlled Practice (3-6 minutes) • To concept check and prepare students for more meaningful practice

another dialogue with missing information on slide 3 will be shown. the learners will have 3 minutes to complete the conversation. I will say: Alice a un problème à la maison. Elle téléphone à un professionnel. Complétez le dialogue avec les mots suivants. then they will listen to verify their answers. 2 learners will be chosen to practice the dialogue. I will ask a learner to read the green box ' pour parler d'un problème' In slide 4 in order to draw their attention to the useful language they can use in the following stage.

Free Practice (5-9 minutes) • To provide students with free practice of the target language

I will show slide 5 and ask a learner to read the task. I will clarify and ask them some ICQ, and CCQ questions to make sure they have understood the task. then I will give them 3 minutes to prepare themselves for the task and take notes. Then I will choose partners and will ask them to practice. I will provide them with feedback and correction if needed. To wrap up the lesson, I will show slide 6 and ask them to practice the target language at home in order to be able to describe the problems shown in slide 6. Next session they will practice without their notes.
