To practice speaking for fluency.
Procedure (28-47 minutes)
From the very beginning, the students will be engaged by reading five short examples and following that they will match them with five pictures. Then they will answer three questions related to the texts and check in pairs.
I will give five words to match with its definitions and then the answers will be given to them to check and then they will be asked to answer 18 controlled questions to do and then they will check in pairs and after that they will be given their answers and check them again.
I will put some cut ups on the white board and put some papers on a table in front of the WB and ask them to stand up and put them in the right place which are the 'modals'. Obligation, ability, possibility, permission in both negative and positive form. Then i will ask them to check them carefully if it needs any changes. Following that i will start by showing some pictures on the whiteboard which are the road signs and i will illustrate by asking some CCQs related to the grammar. Am i allowed to cross the red light? No. Can I speak while watching the film at the cinema? No.
I will ask the students to read the questions of practice 1, and then they will listen to the audio CD to fill the gaps with modals. Upon finishing it, they will check in pairs if they are correct.
They will have almost 5 minutes to talk about the following question with their peers. Did you have friends whose parents were strict / more liberal than your own? in what ways did their rules differ?
