This is the fifteenth SS for Level 1. To understand this SS student is expected to have a working knowledge upto SS-14. You can confirm their knowledge by taking them through the <Level selector tests>
How to use this SS-
After setting up the class follow these steps:
First, cover the vocabulary section by explaining to the student the meaning of the words in their local language. Ask the students to note down these word meanings in their notebook. The words in the vocabulary section (below) will be used in the table which we will create next.
Now, recreate the table (below) on the black board (you can use fewer words in column 3 to speed it up). After this, make some sentences using the match the following style i.e. choose one word from 1st column then choose an appropriate word from second and then choose the appropriate 3rd column phrase/word. Demonstrate this process to the students and lead them to make few more sentences like this. A few sample sentences made using the table words are given below the table for quick reference.
After this stage students when you feel that students have some clarity about the Table then begin the individual exercises. The exercises can be taught in any order but it is recommended to teach them in the given order. After the exercises move on to the story section. This section is made so that students are able to apply all the sentences taught in this SS in their day to day conversations.
About this SS- Interrogative forms including all 3 tenses.
Note: for future continuous tense the temporal (time specifying phrase) is essential and it is more specific than the ones used in simple future tense.
The aim here is teach the student that only when a specific time ( like 5pm , 8 30 pm etc) in future is mentioned in the question then they can use the future continuous tense. so basically all future continuous tenses are answers to such questions: What will you be doing tonight at 5pm ? What will you play at the party tonight? – I will be playing the guitar at the party tonight.
In case if the time being asked is general then we use simple future tense only. What will you do tonight? – I will play cricket tonight.
