Thursday 26th January

We start the class correcting the exercises from Tuesday. Students have to make questions and answer them,  using some words. These questions are about Elloit's life.
Then, we revise the negative form of the present simple and we finish completing a chart with the verb to work in positive, negative and interrogative form.
To practise questions and answers in present simple, we do a speaking activity. Students work in pairs and complete the information about the daily routines of different people (A day in the life...)
We continue with the book and go to next page. Students read about Lois's day (Elliot's sister) and complete the text with  correct form of the verbs. Then, we listen and check.
To finish the lesson, we listen to a conversation between Elliot and Lois. Students have to complete the dialogue.

We start the session revising the time. Students have to talk about daily routines and the time they do those activities.
Then, we go to the book on p.42 and read a text about Elliot's day.
After reading the text, students have to complete 8 sentences with correct the times (ex.2).
Students learn how to form the 3rd person singular of the English verbs in the present simple tense and the meaning of the frequency adverbs : always, sometimes, never.
They practise the pronunciation of the final -s of these verbs (ex.3) and how to form questions and negative sentences in the 3rd person singular (ex.4):

                                             What time does he get up?
                                             He doesn't go out in the evening

We start the class studying a new form to tell the time: the analogue time. Examples:

   11.20  It's twenty past eleven
   11.50  It's ten to twelve
   11.15  It's quarter past eleven
   11.45  It's quarter to twelve
   11.30  It's half past eleven

To practise these new structures, students repeat the photocopy from the previous class. Then, they listen to Vicky and write down the seven times they hear and finally, they watch a video from Real English and pay attention to some people telling the time.
We continue the class with the book, on p.41, students listen to Kim talking about her schooldays. They have to circle the times they hear. Then, they learn how to talk about their day. We study the verbs that describe habits and routines. To consolidate the new vocabulary students ask and anwer their partners about their day. They use expressionslike:

What time do you get up? I get up at seven o'clock.

Hello everyone,

We finish lesson 5 with an activity from a photocopy "Sandwich bar".With this photocopy students revise the food and the prices. They first listen to a boy reading a menu from a sandwich bar, then they complete the menu with the missing information. After that, they listen to a woman decribing how to prepare a chicken sandwich and they have to practise the new structures inventing a new sandwich and telling it to their partners.
After these exercises, we start unit 6. Students are going to study how to tell the time in English. They first learn how to tell the digital time. They ask their classmates the question:
What time is it?
ANd they answer :
In the digital time we first tell the hour and then the minutes, for example:
  9:45- It's nine forty-five
  10:15 - It's ten fifteen
  04:30 - It's four thirty
  03:00 - It's three o'clock

Students practise asking and telling the time in ex. 2, p.40; and with a photocopy where they have to complete the clocks with the times their classmates tell.

Hello everyone,

We continue studying Unit 5. We start the lesson completing the photocopy  named " Crazy party". Then, we go to the book and listen to Flavia and Terry conversation. Students have to tick the correct sentences that Terry says.(t.5.13)
After this exercise, Students practise the new structures with their classmates. They complete questions from exercise 3 and imagine a new identity to use at a party. Then they role-play the conversation in class.
We continue the lesson revising the numbers from 1-30 and we learn numbers from 30 to 100.
Students practise saying and writing numbers with their partners, ex.3.
Numbers are useful in English to say the prices. Students read and listen to some prices and then tick on the ones.(ex.6,T.5.17). To consolidate this new vocabulary they play a type of "The price is right" game, where they have to say the right price of some articles.

Hello everyone,

We are studying Unit 5. We start the lesson revising natiolities and languages and the position of adjectives before a noun. For example, an Italian pizza; a French car...
We also study the constructions of phrases with the verbs: have, eat and drink. In the positive form:

I have a French car
I drink English tea
I eat Italian food
In the negative:
I don't have a French car
I don't drink English tea
I don't eat Italian food
And interrogative:
Do you have a French car?
Do you drink English tea?
Do you eat Italian food?

Check the importance of the auxiliary verb do for negatives(don't) and interrogatives(do you?).

We continue studying nationalities and food with a photocopy titled "Eating out". Students read about restautants in London and learn common expressions in a restaurant, like "Would you like anything to drink?", I'd like to pay, please.

To consolidate the new vocabulary, students practise the dialogues with their classmates.
We finish the session matching some cartoons with the right dialogues. These are common expressions at a party.

Do exercises from the Workbook, Unit 5, ex.11-12.
