Teaching "The 2nd Conditional"

  1. 1. Teaching «2nd conditional»
  2. 2. Lots of money Helping poor people A sport car A big house A world map
  3. 3. Draw a picture “presenting the new language in a meaningful context.”  when presenting the 2nd conditional, I draw a picture of little girl with thought bubbles of lots of money, a sports car, a big house, a world map and helping people.  I ask my students what I'm thinking about and then introduce the target language.  I practise and drill the sentence orally before writing it on the board (positive, negative, question and short answer).
  4. 4. 1. If I were taller … I wouldn't have to wear high-heeled shoes 2. I'd buy a new computer… … if I had enough money. 3. How would you feel if… … you lost your job? 4. If you could visit any country in the world … where would you go? 5.He'd be really upset… … if he knew about the theft. 6. I'd marry him tomorrow… … if I thought he really loved me. 7. I'd forgive you… … if you apologized. 8. If I didn't feel so ill, … I'd come to the party with you.
  5. 5. Controlled practice  Students work in groups  I give students some mixed-up sentences. (conditional sentences with a question and answer)  Students are asked to put them correct order
  6. 6. Freer practice  Students are asked to talk in groups about what they would buy or wouldn’t buy if they were rich.
  7. 7.  1. What would you do if you found £100 in the street?  2. What would you do if you saw your boyfriend/girlfriend’s diary left open?  3. What would you do if your friend arrived at a party wearing a horrible new dress and asked you “how do I look”?
  8. 8. Personal questions  I would try to personalize the lesson by giving students a list of question prompts to ask others in the class.
