This is a 20 minute activity (90 minute class.)
There was warm-up conversation pair work prior to the conversation, then the students went around and summed up their week. This is the second part of the class setting up the pair-work activity. The recording stops shortly after the students start working together.
The purpose of this part of the lesson is to set up some pair work by pre-teaching some vocabulary from the book which includes (among other things) some phrasal verbs.
Its an adult class of 9 students.
The book I’m using is “Exploring English II”…
Unfortunately, the class has “rolling admission”, so not all students are at the same level, but luckily they’re pretty close.
I rate this as a fairly good lesson because all of the students were participating and focused and able to do the pair work after it ended. They were also taking notes, meaning that the material had some meaning.
I made one mistake that’s a good idea to be aware of: I ask the students, “Do you know what a verb is?” — should have asked “What are some examples of verbs?” — Most likely they would have answered correctly, alerting me to the fact that most the students are having trouble with the “R” sound.
