Students in the considered group are from different schools. As this is the first year they study together in the secondary school, they are not acquainted with each other very well. Perhaps they know only some of their classmates who they studied with before. That is why it is important to make a positive and creative atmosphere on the lesson that will help students know each other better and let them feel comfortable. This lesson therefore is mainly dedicated to the development of communication skills. Students will speak and work in groups or separately. Due to different students’ language levels there should be tasks that enclose new and already known vocabulary.
The lesson takes place in the morning or during the day. In the past two lessons students have been working with texts about people and their lifestyles. They have been looking at vocabulary and expressions that describe character of people, their attitude to life, and their values. Also, students have been doing grammar exercises, the theme – conditional clauses.
