    Hi. Thanks for posting this here. I’m trying to learn how to make my first lesson plan, and I’ve found it very helpful. Originally I was going to try to split the regular and irregular verbs into two different lesson plans. Do you think this is necessary, or do you usually do it in one lesson plan? What do you do to ensure the students don’t get too bogged down with all that information. Thanks again. This has been a great help!

  2. Hi,
    You can do it differently if you want. For example, you can start by introducing the verb to be in one lesson, with all the drilling and the meaningful practice. Later, you can introduce the other verbs in another lesson. The idea is that you should try what may work for you, depending on your students needs.

  5. Hi,

    To start with, for very young learners, it might be a great challenge to teach any point of grammar. I always prefer to use a lot of activties in which very young learners learn by doing (dancing, playing, singing…). This is because it is usually very difficult to keep them 100% concentrated and may feel bored when they are introduced to abstract language concepts. I suggest that you introduce tenses and other language elements in a very amusing manner such as games and songs.
