If I was/were a If I woman, I was/were would ... a man,I would ....To talk about wishes in the present we tend to use past simple; only to show that it issomething imaginary, hypothetically speaking. If only I knew the answer (I do not know the answer) I wish I could play the guitar (I cannot play the guitar)In a similar manner, we use past simple to talk about conditions in the present,which are only imaginary. If + past simple, Would + infinitive If you knew what I know, you would be upset. (you dont know what I know) If walls could talk, we would be in trouble. (the walls cannot talk, therefore we are not in trouble) Fill in the following sentences with an appropriate form.If Mary ______________________ (speak) Spanish, she _____________________ (not get) intotrouble. Now she is stuck at the airport.I _____________________________ (prepare) lunch if I ________________________ (be) a goodcook, but all I can do is order a pizza.She ____________________________ (get) a promotion if she _____________________ (make)some extra effort, but she always leaves work earlier.I wish it _______________________________ (be) Friday.

Teacher notes:Activities listed can be used in any given order, since they are all relaeted to the main topic, thatis Men vs Women, since they also work as individual units to be used in class.The whole set combines discussion (lots of it), video, song, grammar (hypothetical situations inthe present).Suggestion:1. You may start with page 1, chemical analysis to break the ice... Cut the handout in half, giving the men analysis for women and vice versa, or let Ss have the whole worksheet to themselves, and let them read it. Entice conversation, see if students (dis)agree with what is said.2. 2nd page of this lesson plan contains small cards that you may cut out and give students for the following 2 activities; a) ask them to write as many stereotypes they can think of; it would be good to write for the opposite sex, so women enumerate all the things typical of men and vise versa. Another usage is when they are supposed to list all the advantages of being of the opposite sex in your society.3. There is a truly great video, though not for vocabulary since it is a short cartoon, but it makes fun of the typical stereotypes of (wo)mens behavior. It can be used at the beginning as an ice breaker too, but I like to use it after I have asked the students to write their own ideas, to see how many they have in common with the video. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=acSvQkghfpsAsk them to jot down or remember things they are (not) doing themselves (e.g. women shoppingfor one thing, and then buying 1001 things they never needed).4. Gender role in the society... Once again you can use the cards from page two, so the Ss write all the advantages they can think of being a (wo)man in your society... Yet again, it would be perfect if you had a mixed class, so the men write about all the privileges women get and vice versa....You may use the following questions to get the conversation going:Do roles of men and women differ a lot nowadays in your country? What has changed? What doyou think will never change?What things are made easier for men/women at: a) work b) school c) relationshipsTypical jobs for women ? Men?5.Introduce 2nd conditional / or revise it with your students....In the end, there is a song by Beyonce that fits perfectly into what has been discussed in class,Cut out the pieces of paper, shuffle the papers and have the students work out the order in pairsor groups of three, and in the second listening let them guess the missing words.If needed, you can provide the missing words by writing them on the whiteboard, but if usedwith higher level classes, it is not needed.The song is great to teach phrasal verbs and phrases as well, since many are missing in the setsuch asTake sb for grantedChase afterKick it withTurn offEtc...I used it with my higher levels students and it really sparked lots of debates, especially withmixed groups. They loved the video and the song... Good luck, hope you enjoy it !
