In this lesson Sts learn how we express movement in
English using a verb and an adverb or preposition, e.g. walk
under the bridge, go out of the door, and the context is sport.
At the start of the lesson in Pronunciation and Speaking Sts
practise pronouncing the names of sports in English before
doing a questionnaire about which sports they like and don’t
like, etc. In Vocabulary they focus on words which describe
movement (up, down, along, through, etc.) and in Grammar
they learn how to combine these words with a verb to
express movement. In Reading and Speaking Sts reada
newspaper article about some famous bad losers in sporting
history and talk about their own experiences of good and
bad losers. Finally, in Writing Sts read a model essay about
football on TV, and then write an essay of their own.

This lesson provides a gentle introduction to phrasal verbs
and how they work. Phrasal verbs are an important feature
of English, and are very frequently used by native speakers.
At this level Sts only need to know the most common ones
like wake up, turn on / off, look for, etc.
The context is waking up in the morning and whether
we are ‘a morning person5 or not. The lesson begins with
Speaking and Reading where Sts talk about waking up in
the morning and how they feel. Then they read an interview
with a BBC journalist, who works on an early morning
music programme, in which she talks about her early
morning routine. In Vocabulary the tocus is on common
phrasal verbs and in Grammar the word order of phrasal
verbs is analysed. In Pronunciation Sts have more practice
of linking and the lesson finishes with speaking where
phrasal verbs are recycled and practised in a questionnaire.

The topic of this lesson is coincidences. The structure So c
am I, Neither am I is presented through the true case of
identical twins who were separated at birth, bur reunited
40 years later. The pronunciation focus is on the two
possible pronunciations of th, j6j as in neither and /0/ as in
both, and sentence stress in phrases like So ami, Neither
do I, and Sts then have a speaking activity where they try
to find things they have in common. At this level Sts will
find it hard to manipulate this structure with much fluency,
so here just practise using the present forms So am j do I,
Neither am / do I.
The vocabulary focus is on different words / phrases used
to express similarity, and the lesson ends with a listening
about another more modern real-life coincidence, where
a man and a woman find out via the internet that they
have exactly the same name {Kelly Hildebrandt), and
subsequently meet and marry.
