This is a powerpoint based lesson on how to write an article with an explanation and exercises on how to express wishes. I’ve used a question from Cosmic B1 (Pearson).
Step 1: Ask your students what they would do if they could take a year off school.
Step 2: Go over the explanation of how to express wishes and tell your students to do the exercises.
Step 3: Ask your students to read the question and the sample article. Present the powerpoint – encouraging the students to find and highlight the content points, connecting words, etc. on their worksheets. Note: each slide gives the students a chance to point these out themselves before revealing the answers. Don’t forget to remind them of the structures when expressing wishes.
Step 4: Ask your students to write a similar article for homework.
