Pre-intermediate level


In this lesson, Ss will practice the use of present perfect and past simple in the context of interesting things they have/haven't done. The lesson starts with examples from my own life, then eliciting some follow-up questions from Ss. Then Ss will do freer speaking practice to talk about interesting things they have or haven't done yet. After that, Ss will try guessing who has/hasn't done some actions while playing a game.
