Lesson Covers - Based on topic of holidays - aim is that students are able to use a variety of verbs in present tense to talk about what they and their friends like to do on holidays. A review of how AR verbs work in present tense, then guides students through conjugating ER and IR regular verbs in present tense. Irregulars Ser, Tener and Jugar are also included.
A roleplay is also included based on AQA GCSE style speaking exam, as an option for students to demonstrate their understanding of the present tense as well as practice using vocabulary based on holidays.
This lesson works best if your students have already started the topic of holidays and have already covered IR in present tense, accommodation vocab, transport vocab as well as how to from AR verbs in present tense. See my otherlessons on holidays if you need ideas for above! :)
