TP 6 "Speaking"
By the end of this lesson, students will have learned to use some adjectives appropriately in the context of "family description"
Students will practise speaking for fluency.
Procedure (63-81 minutes)
The following three incorrect sentences will be written on the board and then I will ask them whether they are correct or incorrect and why. This discussion will remind them of the use of "some", "any" and "an" that they studied in the previous lesson. - Are there some chairs in your house? -There are any books in the classroom. - I saw a elephant in the zoo.
Eleven pictures of the following adjectives "happy-poor-hot-friendly-noisy-short-interesting-ill-clean-intelligent-crowded" will be put on the walls and students will be asked to go around the room and write one word describing each. This mingling activity will get the students interested in the lesson. When they finish, I will discuss their answers with them and select the best adjectives describing the pictures.
A power point slide that includes the pictures of the new adjectives "tall-unhappy-dirty-well-cold-empty-rich-stupid-quiet-unfriendly" will be shown to the students. A detailed discussion about the form, meaning and pronunciation will be followed. Students attention will be focused on the sressed syllables of these adjectives. I will use different drilling strategies in this stage. I will also use CQs. This will be followed by a practice on the use of these adjectives in sentences.
Students will be asked to work individually to fill in the gaps using words from a list. Clear instructions will be given before handing in the task. When they finish, they will be asked to check their answers in pairs. FB for this activity will be will be given to each pair.
Students will be asked to match the new adjectives to their opposite. Students will be asked to work in pairs. Clear instructions will be given. There will be also a model for the students. When they finish, students will be asked to change their peers to check their answers. FB will be shown to them on power point slide.

Clear instructions will be given before this game. There will also be a model for them. I will monitor the students to make sure that they do well in the game.
Students will be given a number of cards about the adjectives studied about and will be asked to speak about these cards using the structure "It looks...." or "He looks ......"
