Task 1
Look at the following range of anticipated problems and decide if they are target language-focused or non-linguistic and then if they are lesson-specific or generic.  Anticipated problem Target language-focused / non-linguistic Lesson-specific or generic Students will have problems with, or be reluctant to use, the contractions or over-stress am/you/is in question forms. There are an inappropriate number of students for tasks noted as PW/GW, particularly in Stage 1. There are an inappropriate number of students for tasks noted as pair-work. Students will think the structure refers to the present because of other uses of the form they have met earlier and because of the use of the present simple form of ‘be’. Students will prefer to use ‘will’ rather than present continuous. Students may arrive back late after the break. The students do not have a bad travel experience to talk / write about (Stages 1 and 11). The data projector does not work or is not available (Stage 2). Students may be of different levels. The students are of a lower level than expected and have trouble answering the reading tasks set (Stages 5-8). The reading tasks take longer than planned (Stages 5-7). Students will omit ‘be’ and say “I meeting”. Some students should be kept apart as they do not work well together. Students will omit the time marker when it is needed to make the future time reference clear. Students will say /In/ or over-stress the /g/ at the end of the –ing form. The students do not like the critical attitude to Polish Rail which the writer displays (Stages 5-7). Students will not be able to read the texts. Students will use the base form of the verb and say “I am meet”.
