BRIEF OUTLINE: Students survey their classmates to find out why they study English

 

MATERIALS NEEDED:

 

DETAILED EXPLANATION:

  1. Review Grammar ( ~ to + reason).
  2. Handout the worksheets.
  3. Make sure students understand each reason.
  4. Explain that the last line is for them to write their own sentences (if they can). You can give some examples.
  5. Have the students walk around the classroom asking each other "Why do you study English?" Have them make a mark beside each response they get.
  6. At the end they can make their own pie chart based on how many students gave each answers. Give them an example on the board.
  7.  Have them write.

 

TEACHING SUGGESTIONS:

  • This is supposed to accompany the first page in Unit 3 (pg. 22) of New Horizon.
  • Act out the process of asking, making the marks and then making the pie-chart at the beginning of class. It doesn't need to take long, but the students will be more into asking lots of people if they understand that they'll make a pie-chart after.
