1. Warm-up (10 minutes):
- To start the lesson, have students form a circle.
- Ask each student to introduce themselves in the language they are most comfortable with.
- Next, ask each student to introduce themselves in English, using a few adjectives or phrases to describe themselves.
2. Activity 1 (15 minutes):
- Divide the students into pairs, and give each pair a set of flashcards.
- Have them take turns introducing each other in English, using the flashcards to help.
- Encourage them to use as many English words and phrases as possible.
3. Activity 2 (15 minutes):
- Group the students into groups of four.
- Explain the game “Two Truths and a Lie.”
- Each student takes a turn introducing themselves in English, and the group has to guess which statement is the lie.
4. Wrap-Up (5 minutes):
- Make sure to emphasize any difficult words or phrases the students encountered during the lesson.
- End the lesson by thanking the students for their participation and encouraging them to practice their introduction in English.
- Observe and provide feedback on each students' ability to introduce themselves in English.
- Encourage students that are struggling and provide extra help when necessary.
This lesson plan can be modified to suit any group. Different activities and games can be tailored to different levels. For example, for more advanced students, the game “Two Truths and a Lie” can be changed to a game of bluff or bluffing. Additionally, the focus of the introduction can be changed to different topics, such as job descriptions or hobbies.
