Teacher Training Course | Lesson Plan


Date:

August 9th, 2016


Main Aim:

Team Members:

Blanca Rodrguez, Mnica Vargas, Aarn Garca.

By the end of the class the students will have practised and developed speaking skills in the context of reporting the weather.

Secondary Aim:

SS will be introduced to a lexica set related to the weather.

The students in this class are between 19 to 60. There are 3 women and 3 men. Three of them are university students, there is a dog trainer, one is retired and a waiter. The class starts at
2:00 in the afternoon and finishes at 3:00. They are enthusiastic and tend to use L1 in order to communicate. It seems that the majority have had some sort of approach to the English
Language, though there are some beginners. Considering the interaction and abilities, we can identify a level of A1 according to the CEFR for the majority of the students. The rest would be
between the range of A2 and B1.
