Present and imperative tenses
How did you pick this theme or topic?
They had learned vocabulary in the previous lesson, but the topic of food is so vast that there is a lot activities that can be done in order for the students to learn more words and cultural things such as recipes, dishes, etc… It’s also a nice way of making them practice other things such as the use of certain tenses.
How did you present the material? (Handouts, group work, general discussion, student presentations, etc.)
Fill in the blanks
How did students react?
They reacted well. But they took longer than expected to do it.
Did they engage with each other and you?
Yes. They had to read a text to each other and fill in different blanks, so they had to ask questions about the spelling of words, etc…
What materials or media did you use? (articles, satellite tv, digital projector, etc.)
