Level: beginner-elementary.

Timing: approximately 20 minutes.

Aims: a TPR (Total Physical Response) lesson to teach basic commands in the classroom – students learn by doing the actions.

NB For a beginner class, you might want to replace turn on the light, turn off the light and throw away your rubbish with other commands which are not phrasal verbs, such as open your book, close your book and repeat/say a word.

Procedure

1. In the first part of the lesson, do a getting-to-know you activity (e.g. drilling ‘My name’s

… What’s your name?’).

2. Say a chain of commands and do the actions yourself as you say them, e.g. ‘Stand up, turn on the light, sit down’, ‘Stand up, turn off the light, sit down’, ‘Look up “pattern”, write down “pattern”, turn over the page’, ‘Turn over the page, cross out “pattern” ’, ‘Stand up, throw away your rubbish, sit down’.

3. Look at each of the students in turn and say ‘Stand up’, gesturing with your hands. Do the same with ‘Sit down’ then do various other commands as a whole class.

4. Now name one of the stronger learners and give him/her a command, e.g. ‘Khalid, stand up. Khalid, turn on the light.’

5. Repeat with each of the learners.

6. Go and sit in the place of one of the stronger learners, to show that you are now that learner, and give some more individual commands.

7. Indicate that learners should take it in turns to give each other commands, e.g. ‘Khalid – now you. Thank you, Khalid. Now Naïma.’

8. Give everyone a big clap when you’ve finished.

9. As a follow-up, get them to do worksheet 1 in pairs. Point to each expression and say it, in case they cannot read it.

10. Check their answers as a whole class by saying an expression and getting the learners to point to the picture.

11. For classes who did well with worksheet 1, move on to the more abstract worksheet 2. Demonstrate the activity first by ticking one of the correct boxes yourself.
