In tli is lesson Sts revise going to, which they learnt at
Elementary level to tal k about plans and predictions. The
context is a listening based on interviews with people at
Heathrow airport in London, who are all questioned about
their plans. The lesson begins with vocabulary, and Sts
learn useful vocabulary related to airports. They then listen
to the interviews, which leads them into the grammar,
which is revised and practised. The pronunciation focus
is on sentence stress and fast speech, which helps Sts to
recognize the contraction o f goin g to (go n n a ), and Sts then
ask and answer questions about their plans. The lesson
ends with an article about the world’s top airports, and
what makes them special.








In this lesson Sts learn a Dew use of the present continuous:
to talk about fixed plans and arrangements. The context
is the continuation of the story of Lily, one of the people
they listened to in 3A, who was going to a conference
and hoping to meet up with an ex-boy friend. They begin
this lesson reading messages between her anti Ben, the
ex-boyfriend, in which they make contact, and they then
listen to her leaving hima voicemail about her travel
arrangements. After focussing on the grammar, they
get more practice through a listening where Lily and
Ben arrange to see each other, and finally they hear what
happens when they actually meet. The lesson continues
with a pronunciation focus on friendly intonation, and Sts
then complete a diary and try to make arrangements to
go out with other Sts in the class. The lesson ends with a
vocabulary focus on verbs which are normally followed by
prepositions, and Sts then use both the grammar and the
vocabulary to write an email about travel arrangements.









The topic of this lesson is words. First, Sts are introduced
to simple, defining relative clauses through the context
of a TV game show, where contestants have to define
words to each other. This context shows Sts that relative
clauses can help them with the essential language skill of
paraphrasing. After practising the grammar, they go on to
iearn other useful phrases which will help them keep going
in a conversation when they don’t know the exact word for
something. Sts then read an article about new words which
come into the language each year, and finally, Sts see how a
dictionary can help them pronounce new words correctly.
