Introduction
This Guidebook is for teachers of English working with students in Second
Chance education, Primary Level 1. This is the first of a set of four
guidebooks for teaching English to Second Chance primary students.

Overall objectives
To develop skills of oral reception and production
To develop a positive attitude to English by providing a context in
which learning is stimulating and fun
To encourage students to take an active role in their learning and
to reflect on their progress
To establish a basic level of oral English on which the students can
continue to build

The target group

Pr
o

ie

ct

pi

lo

Students who take level 1 of English Second Chance primary may be


14 or over. They are unable to read and write in Romanian, and their
first language may be other than Romanian. Their motivation for
taking this course varies widely. Some may be driven back to school by
the need to obtain a certificate that will enable them to get a job,
others may simply want to obtain their driving license. When it comes
to classroom participation, some may be inhibited. However, its
important to remember that these students may be busy adults, with
families and jobs.
It is highly important to build the students self-confidence as
learners; show them they can learn and persuade them that speaking a
foreign language is an asset in todays world. It is your job as their
teacher to encourage them to reflect on how they learn best and to
cater for their preferences. Help them assess their own progress and
provide them with constructive feedback.
Remember: adults may get bored with highly repetitive, routine
activities. It is important to practice structures you plan to teach them
in situations that make sense to them and which they are likely to
encounter in real life. Move through the basics quickly and return to
them from time to time.

Language content
Level 1 assumes no previous knowledge of English. Basic
communicative functions are presented: greeting and responding to
greeting, introducing oneself, introducing people, thanking and
responding to thanks, apologizing and responding to apologies,
describing people and their concrete immediate surroundings,
describing location, talking about food and drinkis, ordering
something to eat and drink in a restaurant, etc. Topics have been
chosen to reflect the interests of adults returning to school to
complete basic education.

Second Chance Primary

I NTRODUCTION

Active and cooperative learning


You should organise the lessons so that students play as active a role
as possible. In this way, they will feel important, their motivation and
interest will increase, and their learning will be more meaningful and
lasting. Developing an active role in the learning process fosters a
sense of responsibility and cooperation, promotes confidence in the
students own capacity to learn a language and teaches a number of
skills and strategies necessary for a more autonomous type of learning.
By participating in pair work and group activities, students will get to
know their fellows and learn to work together, thus developing their
interpersonal and social skills, too.

Use of Romanian in the English lessons

ct

pi

lo

At the beginning, you will be compelled to use Romanian to make


sure that everyone understands what you mean. However, avoid
translating utterances that may be obvious from body language, or
from what you model. Simple instructions or requests (come in, sit down,
stand up, change partners etc.) will be gradually understood by the
students. Even if not all respond to what you say, they may copy other
students who are quicker to understand. In such cases, it is a waste of
time to translate. If for some reason, a student wants to know precisely
what has been said, teach them to ask a colleague or you to translate:
Please, translate. / What does mean?

ie

Evaluation

Pr
o

Evaluation can provide important information not only on the


performance of the students, but also on teaching methods and
materials. For formative evaluation it is advisable that the classroom
activities are monitored on an on-going basis. To this end, use an
activity record sheet and a simple system of marking in every session
(e.g. N need more work; OK good progress; E excellent).

Lesson / Session / Date


Learners name

Activity 1

Activity 2

Activity 3

Activity 4

Activity 5

For summative evaluation, in levels 1 & 2 you can only assess students
orally. For this, you need to have illustrations / flashcards, and to be
prepared to either interview students individually, or observe oral
interaction in a group.

Teachers Guide English I

I NTRODUCTION

Proposed session structure


Be imaginative! You may want to think up a story as the frame for
units 1-6. For instance, you may introduce the story of an English lorry
driver whose lorry broke down in a village in Romania. He meets a
Romanian farmer who puts him up for a few nights, while the lorry is
being fixed. The days he spends with the Romanian family can provide
a meaningful context for introducing new vocabulary and useful
structures to your students, as the Romanian farmer in the story may
have the same difficulties communicating in English just like your
students. If you choose to build the lessons on such stories, make sure
you think of the details and - ideally you have at least some visuals.

Then tell them you are going to call out an item, lets say spoon. Who has the spoon should
cross it out with a pencil. You continue naming the flashcards until someone calls Bingo. The
winner is the one who crosses out all the 5 cards, but s/he should also be able to name them.

YOU WILL LEARN

Tell the students they are going to talk about eating and drinking and that they will also
simulate a dialogue taking place in a restaurant.

THINK!

Show the students the picture of the table with food on. Ask them to think about what they
eat in the morning, at noon and in the evening.

LETS

LEARN!

Tell them the names of the three meals: breakfast, lunch and dinner. Tell them its all right that
they cant name the food items. Instead they should simply point at them and you will help
them with the translation.
E.g. I have bread and jam for breakfast.
I eat soup for lunch.
Continue describing the picture together using There is/ There are, making sure that you
mentioned all the items in it.

Unit 4

4 If possible, arrange the tables/ desks like in a restaurant and divide students in groups of

three: two of them would be the guests and the latter would be the waiter.
Give them speech prompts and encourage them to improvise in case they forget something.
They should not forget to greet one another. Its advisable to act the scene out with another
student, to set an example.
Speech prompts:
Waiter:
Guest:
May I help you?
I would like a soup, please.
Would you like something to drink/ eat?
Yes, a tea, please.
Here you are, Sir/Madam.
Thank you!
Youre welcome!
And for dessert?
Nothing, thank you.
Of course, the students will feel the need to say more than this, so you may want to assist
them in case they need help in translating new words and structures.

CHECK

THIS!

Can you name food items and drinks?


Can you order something to eat?

Introduction
Greet the group in English as you walk into the classroom. This is your first meeting with the
group of learners, so you will need to introduce yourself. Stay with English as much as you can.
Ask students to name the countries where they think English is spoken as an official language.
Let them speak about how widespread English is, and why they may find it useful to learn
(preferably in Romanian).
As they name countries, say the names in English.
Then have a look at the world map and name the countries marked with grey. They will need
to know the names for a further exercise.

Introduce yourself to the class, thus providing a speech pattern which students may follow in
their conversations, later on:
E.g. Hello! My name is Mihaela Ionescu.
My friends call me Miha.
Im from Romania.
Write your name on the blackboard and explain:
Mihaela (at this point circle it, or write it with a different colour) is my first name.
Ionescu is my surname/ family name (write your surname with other color than your first name).
Romania (tell the students to point at it on the world map).

YOUR

TURN!

1 This is the first time you meet your students, but take into account that this is the first time
they meet each other, too. They dont know each other and it may be hard for some of them
to open up and speak, so you need to break the ice and make them talk. You can achieve
this by means of an ice breaker game.
Bring a small ball (table tennis ball) to class and throw it at one of your students (who seems
more talkative) and as you throw it, ask: Whats your name? After s/he answers, s/he should
throw the ball at another classmate of his/her choice and ask the same question. You
continue until all the students state their names.
Variation: students may alternate the questions and ask: Whats your surname? Whats your
first name? Where are you from?

Draw on the board a sketch of a man and two women.


Ask the students to label each person as Mr, Ms and Miss. Whereas Mr may be clear for
most of them, you may need to elicit the difference between Ms and Mrs. Give them a hint
by saying Mrs and pointing at your ring finger. They may guess that Mrs is a married
woman, whereas Ms is not.

4 Ask for two students help. Model a simple conversation.

ct

Teacher: This is Mrs Angela Pop. And this is Mr Tudor Voicu.


Angela: Nice to meet you, Mr. Voicu.
Tudor: Nice to meet you, Mrs Pop.

E.g. Whos this?
This is Jet Li.
Wheres he from?

Show the students the second picture from the Resources section. You may want to use the story
of the lorry driver who asks the Romanian farmer, Petre to help him. He cant fix the lorry (for
this word you may want to bring a photo to clarify its meaning), but he will take Tom to his home
and introduce him to his family. Have students make guesses about the people in the pictures,
translate the words for them and have them repeat the English words as you pronounce them.
Petre will learn English from Tom in the same way: by repeating Toms words.
Petre - husband/ father
Anica - wife/ mother
Ionut son (5 years old)
Florina daughter (9 years old)
Tom, the lorry driver shows Petre photographs of his family explaining who is who:
This is my wife, Lisa. This is my son, This is my daughter, . This is me. We live in Liverpool.

Flashcards to illustrate the target vocabulary


Picture showing the inside of a house (rooms)
Pictures of a woman cooking in the kitchen; people eating; a man watching TV in a living
room; a little boy sleeping in a bedroom; a man washing in the bathroom.

WHAT

YOU WILL LEARN

Tell the students that they are going to name different rooms in a house, some objects that
people use every day, and talk about what people do in the house.

THINk!
Tom is in the house. Ask the students what Romanian words they would teach Tom, so that he
could communicate with the host family. Have him walk through the house, from room to
room. Your students will identify the essential information, i.e. select useful words, your task is
to tell them the English equivalent. They will help you teach Tom Romanian and Tom will help
you teach them English.

24

Second Chance Primary

L EVEL 1
LETS

LEARN!

1 Show the pictures and name the rooms in the house using sentences like: Anica is in the
kitchen. Petre is in the living room
Introduce different objects using This is/that is a/an . Start with objects in the classroom
chair, door, window and continue with objects in the pictures having students place them
in different rooms. Be flexible if students do not place the objects where you expect them to.
dining room table, chairs
kitchen sink, cooker, fridge, cupboard
living room sofa, TV set, shelf/shelves, carpet
bathroom toilet, bath, shower
bedroom bed, lamp, curtain, wardrobe
Rooms can be described using the vocabulary acquired so far (numbers the chairs in
the room can be counted, colours students can say what colour an object is)
There is a table in the dining room. There are six chairs. There is no TV set in the dining room.
Is there a cupboard in the dining room?
Yes, there is. / No, there isnt.

pi

ct

Introduce present continuous by demonstrating different activities, so the students can see
you actually doing what you say you are doing. Then show them the pictures in which they
can see the people doing the activities:
Anica is cooking in the kitchen.
Ionut is sleeping in the bedroom.
They are eating in the dining room.
Tom is washing in the bathroom.
Petre is watching TV in the living room.

Pr
o

Introduce prepositions by showing students an object, say a pen, that you can put on a
desk/chair, in a drawer/bag, under a table/ chair, near the door/ a book. Use pictures to
practice sentences like:
Theres a carpet on the floor.
Theres a wardrobe in the room.
Theres a lamp next to the bed.
Theres a shelf under the window.

ie

lo

YOUR

TURN!

1 Have the students practise the names of the rooms. Ask


them what rooms the characters are in. This activity can be
done as a memory game if you do not show them the
pictures when you ask: Where is Petre?

2 Have students practise present continuous by grouping


them into small groups of 4. Give each group a set of
visuals (people doing various activities), help them by telling
them three of the verbs (use short infinitive: e.g. go, play,
sit). They have to come up with as many sentences as they
can using the pattern: Somebody is doing something.
E.g. Ionut is playing.
They will score double if they can also say where.
E.g. Ionut is playing in the living room / on the sofa.

CHECk

THIS!

Ask students:
Can you name the rooms in a
house?
Can you say what people are
doing in each room?
Can you name the objects in
each room?

TRY

THIS!

Tell the students to describe


their favourite room in the
house.

WHAT

YOU WILL LEARN

Tell the students they are going to talk about eating and drinking and that they will also
simulate a dialogue taking place in a restaurant.

THINk!
Show the students the picture of the table with food on. Ask them to think about what they
eat in the morning, at noon and in the evening.

LETS

LEARN!

Tell them the names of the three meals: breakfast, lunch and dinner. Tell them its all right that
they cant name the food items. Instead they should simply point at them and you will help
them with the translation.
E.g. I have bread and jam for breakfast.
I eat soup for lunch.
Continue describing the picture together using There is/ There are, making sure that you
mentioned all the items in it.

L EVEL 1
YOUR

TURN!

1 Play food bingo. Make sure you have enough food flashcard copies for all your students. There
are 20 flashcards. Give each student 5 random cards, making sure that they have no doubles.
Then tell them you are going to call out an item, lets say spoon. Who has the spoon should
cross it out with a pencil. You continue naming the flashcards until someone calls Bingo. The
winner is the one who crosses out all the 5 cards, but s/he should also be able to name them.

2 Pair up the students and have them interview one another.


A asks B: What do you have for breakfast/ lunch/ dinner? B replies and asks A the same questions.
Then they should share their findings with the class.
Ioana may say about Dan: Dan has coffee for breakfast, pizza for lunch and steak
E.g.
for dinner.
Listen to the dialogue and ask the students where it takes place. Introduce the menu to the
students and elicit the items from them. Clarify the meaning of starters, main course and
dessert, and elicit examples from the students for each category.
Play the recording again and ask them what the man ordered.
At the restaurant
Good evening, Sir!
Good evening!
May I help you?
Yes, bring me the menu, please.
Here you are, Sir.
I would like a glass of wine and a soup.
And for the main course?
Fish and chips, please. And for dessert an ice cream.
Immediately!

4 If possible, arrange the tables/ desks like in a restaurant and divide students in groups of
three: two of them would be the guests and the latter would be the waiter.
Give them speech prompts and encourage them to improvise in case they forget something.
They should not forget to greet one another. Its advisable to act the scene out with another
student, to set an example.
Speech prompts:
Waiter:
Guest:
May I help you?
I would like a soup, please.
Would you like something to drink/ eat?
Yes, a tea, please.
Here you are, Sir/Madam.
Thank you!
Youre welcome!
And for dessert?
Nothing, thank you.
Of course, the students will feel the need to say more than this, so you may want to assist
them in case they need help in translating new words and structures.

CHECk

Can you name food items and drinks?


Can you order something to eat?

Ask the students to think about their favourite dish


and tell the recipe to the class. If its the case, group
