1.

2. 3.

4. 5. 6.

Get a student to read the instructions out loud (TT2) and check that they are clear (TT3). N.B. You don’t need to explain the new vocabulary to the class - the students will discover the meaning of the new words as they do the exercise. Get the students to read all the sentences first without writing anything (TT14). Tell the students to start doing the exercise on their own. Tell them to guess the answers if they don’t know some of them (TT6). Stop the activity (TT7). Get the students to check their answers together in pairs or small groups (TT13).

Get feedback (TT8).

Answers:

  • 1.

    as nice as pie

  • 2.

    not my cup of tea

  • 3.

    a piece of cake

  • 4.

    nuts

  • 5.

    full of beans

7. 8.

Consolidate pronunciation (TT4).

Then show them how to make questions from the statements:

Example:

1.

I think our English teacher is as nice as pie.

9. 10.

Do you think our English teacher is as nice as pie? (!) Elicit (TT12) follow-on questions to keep the conversation going. Do the other ones together if necessary or let the students do it spontaneously as they have their conversation together. Whatever you think best.

2. 3. 4. 5. 11

.

Do you enjoy learning English pronunciation? Do you think that learning English grammar is a piece of cake? Do you know anyone who is completely nuts? Are you always full of beans? Let the students begin their conversation, speaking together in English (TT5). Encourage

students to build the conversation in a natural way by asking supplementary questions of their own as long as they are relevant to the topic (TT16).
