Pre-intermediate level


In this lesson, I'm going to review the use of (going to) for future intentions. I will start the lesson by a memory activity to try and remember the plans of the person in the previous lesson. Then I'm going to ask some CCQs to the students to explain meaning. Then molding some examples and writing them on the board and checking the students answers in the FB. This is followed by a semi-controlled activity to practice the language in context. Then at the end there's a group work activity for freer practice.
