BRIEF OUTLINE: Students aim to understand the grammar and form a free dialogue around various questions.





  1. BINGO
    • Students read the dialogue from the textbook.
    • P
      ractice the dialogue as a class.
    • Hand out the bingo sheet with the following questions:
      • Would you like to play soccer after school?
      • Would you like to listen to music with me?
      • Would you like to play guitar at lunch?
      • Would you like to read a book?
      • Would you like to speak English with me?
      • Would you like to play video games?
      • Would you like to use my pen?
      • Would you like to come to my house?
      • Would you like to go to the movies?
    • Also, teach the response to these questions: "I’d love to," and "No, I wouldn't." The answers should be followed by a reason: "Yes, I'd love to. That would be fun."
    • Afterwards, students walk around the classroom, asking their friends the questions and aiming to complete the bingo card with 'Yes, I'd love to' responses.
    • Students make pairs. Explain that students are to make a dialogue about an invitation.
    • Students choose one of the invitations from the bingo game as their focus.
    • Give students about 10 minutes to write their dialogues and practice presenting.
    • If the mood is right, have the students perform in front of the class. If the class isn't genki, have the students create groups of fours (2 pairs) and have the pair perform for the other pair.



  • Award points for the best performances based on props, voice, eye contact etc.
  • If the students perform in front of the class, get the other students to vote on the best performance (you may need another lesson for this).
