Procedure (35-45 minutes)
Explaining the students the aim of the class that is mainly on speaking in the context of family and being a teenager, and what we will be focusing on during the class.
Since the subject is about family and being a teenager, I will use myself as a model and show a teenage photo of mine, by using the projector, to demonstrate how I looked like by then. I will make sure that I use the lexis and vocabulary they learned in the class earlier. After I show the picture, I make sure that the students get in the groups, ask me questions about me and as me being a teenager.
After the students ask me the questions about me being a teenager, I will draw a table on the white board and I will the students to copy it into their notebooks. I will tell the students to think about their lives when they were a teenager. I will make sure that they know what teenager means, also. Then, I will ask the students to write two adjectives in each box.
On the next stage, I will focus on the students on the examples and highlight how the students should finish their sentences. Students will work on their own and plan their own sentences, by using the adjectives in their table.
Then, I will put the students in groups. Students will take turns to tell each other about the differences between now and then using the sentences they planned in.
I will encourage the students to give reasons for the changes and ask them follow - up questions. While they are working, I will monitor and correct them. Towards the end of the activity, I will ask if anyone wants to share interesting answers with the class.
