22nd August 2020 [E Up U8 L3]
Encourage students to use at least two adjectives before the noun. (Vietnamese is similar to French in that the adjective follows the noun, so students have to think counter intuitively).
Practice using determiners (it is, they, those)
Practice sentence building (I can swim however I can’t fly)
Practice intonation and stress – avoid robot speaking 🙂
Use appropriate hand gestures to drill the four new adjectives:
fast / slow / noisy / quiet
Thay Paul is from London. London is very big. London has many cars. Look:
Also London had many big red buses. Also, I can see many taxis. Some are black, some are blue and some are grey.
London has many big red buses. The buses are slow and noisy
(use the gestures so the students shout out the adjectives. Repeat with these pictures):
The new blue car is ______________ and ____________
The small new white car is __________________ and _____________
The old grey, yellow and red car is __________ and ____________
BUT … can a car fly ? Watch this:
This car is fun. It can drive and fly.
The small white car can drive however it can’t fly.
One of our students is from Korea.
What do you know about Korea ? Tell me what you see ?
Use ‘fast’, ‘slow’, ‘noisy’ and ‘quiet’
Now, you tell me … what’s that ?
That’s an old bike (only 1 so we use that is = that’s)
Those are old bikes (more than one so we use those are)
See you next week
