I don't have much, but here's a small slide explaining "May I/Can I...? Don't forget to change the photo on the 3rd slide.


And I also showed my students this youtube clip to explain that people can have extreme talents as well: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tehJg8dvUnE (the link is pasted on the last slide.

Hope this helps a touch!

To start class I'm going to show a video of George Sampson on Britain's Got Talent. He is a teenage boy who does this amazing street dance stuff there are loads of videos on YouTube of him..this is one of his first:

The PPT below has some different "What do you think of..." questions and then it leads into a Code Breaker game to practice different dialogues. The Code Breaker game is NOT mine, but I can't remember where I got it on Waygook...I just changed the pictures and dialogue and made a code answer sheet for students to work in pairs.

I gathered ideas from others, but the majority of this PPT was created by me. I used it for my open class. The students are a higher level class so it may seem a bit heavy, but they  blew right through it. Also, I used a smart board for this lesson especially for the last two activities...the What Do You Think Of and What Did We Learn Today.
Good Luck

Start of with the video the other poster suggested, but stop halfway. Use it as bait and tell them if they are good, you'll show the rest of the video later.  Explain today's vocab (may/can/could I) and ask for volunteers, or pass a ball around etc.

Then it's time for codebreaker. They LOVE this game. After a while you need to give handicaps to certain teams as they are too good. I gave 1 sheet of paper per group and made them work together, but rotated who was writing every time. So even if the smarted kid is figuring it out, the low level students still participate in writing.  If they are too slow, only for 1/2 the worksheet and move on.

Finally have them complete the worksheet. Tell them they have to be funny. This will result in many "May I be your boyfriend?" "May I kiss you?" "May I see your poo?" "Can you punch me" etc. Then randomly select 2 students and have them ask answer questions. The students need to answer correctly "Of course/No way". Students enjoyed this activity, but only when the questions were humorous.

Then finally the review.

I'm struggling a little with this chapter.

Here's an activity. Students time travel and talk to their future selves. Then ask 2 other students about their future selves. They talk about what their talents in the future may be.

Some brief instructions in the ppt comments section.

Hello all,

I was struggling to think of an activity for Listen & Speak 2 of Lesson 11. Finally, I just decided to use Hidden Picture.

You should download the files to get a better idea of what to do, but basically...
1. Teams RPS to determine the order.
2. Each box on the hidden picture slide has a letter. The team whose turn it is chooses a letter to take away and guesses the location within 5 seconds if they can. (The slide asks "where is this?") This continues until a team guesses the location. The team that correctly guesses in a complete sentence gets the point. (Only the team whose turn it is can guess.)
3. The answer slide is next. It shows the whole picture and asks the students what they think of the picture. If the two can make two interesting sentences about the picture, they get another point.
