(Transition): You seem very curious about that.
T: Ok, then let’s start our lesson.:)
(Creating the context)
Photo of a Captain
T: (Showing the picture and sticking on the board) This is my friend Kivanc and he is a
captain. He always travels around the world. He came for the holiday and visited me. He sets
off tomorrow morning and he won’t be in Turkey for a long time again and he told me the
things he planned (predicted) to do/ finish in a certain time through his following journeys. He
set some certain dates before his journey and made some predictions.
S: What are they?
T: Be patient. I will tell you one by one.
T: Look at the picture (Showing and sticking it on the board). Do you know where this castle
T: (Showing the flag of the country) Now?
S: Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus…
T: Yes. Northern Cyprus. He said ‘I will have visited the Girne Castle in Cyprus by next
week.’ Then he will start his journey from there. He will complete his works in Cyprus. Ok?
(Teacher writes the sentence on the board.)
T: Will he be in Turkey next week?
T: Will he be going to the Cyprus next week?
T: Good. Then, will he complete his visit to Cyprus next week?
T: That’s right. He will have visited the Girne Castle by next week.
(Clarifying the meaning)
T: Look at this photo now. (Sticks it on the board) Where will he go?
S: He will go to Italy.
T: Right, he’ll go to Napoli in Italy.
T: Yes and he will have seen the beautiful sea sides of Napoli in a month. (Teacher writes the
example under the first example.)
T: Will he stay a month in Italy?
T: Will he go to Italy after one month?
T: Will he be ready to set off his journey from Italy in a month?
T: Good. He will have seen the beautiful sea side and been ready to go.
T: (Showing the pictures) He goes on his travel. He will be in… (with raising tone of voice
to make students continue)
T: Yes, Barcelona in Spain; very good. He will have watched a football match in Barcelona
by three months. (Writes the sentence on the board)
T: Will he be watching a football match for three months?
T: Hmm… Will he be travelling around the Spain for the following three months?
T: Will he finish his journey in Spain in three months?
S: Yes, he will.
T: Great, you are doing well today.
T: Yes, he doesn’t stop. (Showing the picture and sticking it on the board) Do you know
where this statue is?
T: It is in P… (giving the first letter teacher wants students to guess it)
S: P, P… Portugal?
T: Yes, that’s right, Portugal, Lisbon.
T: By the end of five months, Kivanc will have already strolled in the streets of Lisbon. (writes
T: Will he go to Portugal after five months pass?
T: Will he accommodate in Lisbon through five months?
T: Will he complete his journey to Lisbon in five months period?
T: Yes, you are right. Thank you.
T: And lastly, he will visit…(with raising intonation to make the students guess it from the
flag in the photo)
T: Waow, yes. He will have swum in the North Pole Sea in six months period. (writes the
sentence on the board)
S: He will complete his journey very well.
T: Will he be going to the Netherlands in six months?
T: Will he complete his journey in six months period?
T: Wonderful. He will be ready to set off to come back to Turkey, then. Right?
T: Great, you are doing very well today. (Teacher writes the name of the tense – WILL
HAVE -FUTURE PERFECT on the board above the examples.) Now remember the previous
lessons. What do you see that you know in the sentences?
T: Yes, you know will is used for…?
S: Future events.
T: Yes… And here there is something more than ‘will’, isn’t it? Let’s find out them
altogether. Firstly, Kivanc is…?
T: Yes, subject (underlines and labels it on the board). And then?
T: Right ‘will’ future marker. After?
T: Yes, there is ‘have’ and more…
S: Verb 3
T: Yes and V3 comes after ‘have’ (Teacher underlines and labels all the things said while
they are telling)
Teacher writes the rule under the examples –S+Will+Have+V3…(Checking understanding of the meaning and the form)
T: Do we use future perfect tense for the future events that are planning to be done
T: Can we use this tense to mention about the things that are still on the way to be done?
S: No. It should be finished.
T: Yes, exactly. Then we can say that we use future perfect tense while making predictions
about the completion of a future event before another future time. Is it right?
T: Do we use only ‘will’ to give this meaning?
S: No… Will+have+been(V3)
Rationale: Teacher used an inductive approach in this plan and involved the students in all
stages of the presentation part. Teacher created a context at the beginning of the lesson and
took their attention with a photo of her friend, then used different pictures to clarify the
meaning of the structure. Afterwards, teacher clarified the form and wrote the structure clearly
on the board by asking all elements of the sentence one by one. Lastly, teacher made a brief
conclusion using eliciting.
Transition: Congratulations, you get the idea I think. Let’s work on the structure a little
T: Yes, now. Here is an activity.
