What’s happening in this lesson?

End of week video.
Okay, now you have probably noticed that there are some words in here with bold, okay? What I would like you to do, is have a look at this table. Here you have the words, the same words, and here you have some definitions. I would like you to match the words and the definitions. What kind of words are these? Phrasal verbs, very good. And there are three types of phrasal verbs. So first one, no object. Second one, object in the end. Third one, object in the end or in the middle. It doesn’t matter.

We’ve come to the end of another week. Watch the next part of Amal’s lesson to get a flavour of what we’re going to be doing next week. Week 4 will be all about language and what teachers need to know about language. Watch how Amal tackles some language work with her class. While you’re watching, answer these questions:

  • What’s happening in the lesson now?
  • Why does Amal get the learners to match the words from the text with the definitions?
  • What is she teaching when she places examples of language on the board?
  • Post your comments and see what other participants think. We’ll answer these questions next week.
