Step 1: Daily Objective

By the end of the class learners should be able to invite a friend to watch or play a sport at their proficiency target.

Step 2: Making Plans Brainstorm

What information goes into making plans?

Let them brainstorm with a partner or small group and jot down words or phrases they might need.

Next, talk it out as a class and write out KEY IDEAS on your smart board/whiteboard.

Step 3: Sort It Out

Ask students to look over the information for making plans and try to match them with the correct question.

They can make a chart on their own paper or whiteboard OR you can print the charts for them to use in small groups.

Is there anything else they’d like to know?

Step 4: Practice inviting

Model how to invite someone to watch or play a sport. There are several images to use (but don’t feel like they have to know all of this!) to cover the many parts they may hear/see in an invation.

There are two versions of this practice. Pick the one you like the most or mix & match. There are lots of ways to do this.

Show learners the visuals above to explain how to do each one. They will probably need to see the “Do you want…” structure again.

Idea – To make it a bit more challenging, find this download in their native language (English page). Then they won’t have the question words or the days of the week in German.

Learn how to make plans

Show learners the visuals (click to enlarge) to explain how to make plans. Encourage them to take notes and add more examples.

The video below is good, but may be better for the intermediate level.

Dice Version

This is the easiest version. It does not get into the time and other details. It can be completed with words, phrases or sentences.

Print one dice sheet and one answer sheet front/back. Give one to each person.

Put them with a partner or in small groups (3 max). They need 2 dice or 4 if you have colored dice.

If supplies are limited, you can do 1 or 2 and they just have to roll more.

If you have colored dice, you can color code the dice sheet (see example) and they roll all 4 at once.

The person who goes first will roll the dice. The number will tell them what they will invite the others to do.

Example: If I rolled a 3, 2, 3, 1, then I’d ask “Do you want to watch (3) soccer (2) on Friday (3) at my home (1)?”

The partner or the other people in the group will highlight/circle what they were invited to do. Interpretive Listening check! Then they will give a quick answer (yes/no).

They will repeat this 4 more times. Then they will switch roles.

Cards Version

This is slightly more difficult than the dice version. There is more vocabulary (sports, places,days and times) and less language support. They may need a quick reminder that this is using military time.

Print one card sheet for each group of 3. Suggestion, put on different colored paper so if one falls on the floor you know where it goes. Cut them apart and put them in an envelope.

Print/copy an answer sheet (same on front/back) for each person. So they will have 10 boxes.

Put them in small groups of 3 people.

Put the cards in the middle, face down. Person 1 will draw a card and use it to invite

Example: This card has the eye = watch, a soccer ball, and the home picture. Then I’d ask in TL “Do you want to watch soccer on Friday at 3 at my home?”

The partner or the other people in the group will write down what they were invited to do in Native Language. Interpretive listening check! Then they will give a quick answer (yes/no).

Then they will switch roles and someone else will draw a card and ask. Continue until the cards are gone.

Play Karl’s invite message

Before playing: What words do they think they will hear in an invite?

During: Tell them to write down what they understood. Play it again if needed.

After playing: What did they understand? What did they not understand?

Would they like to watch a game with Karl and his friend?

What questions would they ask back?
