Lesson Overview

Do you follow in your parents’ footsteps? In this lesson, students will discuss family and personality traits. Students will learn and practice superlative adjectives and vocabulary relating to this topic. The lesson includes plenty of engaging discussion activities and worksheets that have been developed for adults and teenagers.

Lesson Objectives

  • Grammar: Students will learn and review superlative adjectives to describe family members and personality traits, focusing on forming and using superlatives correctly in sentences. They will practice identifying the most extreme qualities among groups, such as "the tallest," "the most intelligent," and "the happiest."

  • Speaking: Students will engage in discussions about their families and personality traits, using superlative adjectives to talk about family members who stand out in certain ways. They will share stories about the "most memorable" family events or the "best and worst" family gatherings, developing their ability to express opinions and experiences in English.

  • Vocabulary: The lesson introduces vocabulary related to family relationships, such as "parents-in-law," "half-sister," "extended family," and adjectives to describe personality traits, including "outgoing," "honest," "bossy," and "shy." Students will also learn words related to superlative forms like "the most expensive," "the fastest," and "the happiest."

  • Homework: Homework tasks are designed to reinforce the lesson's focus on superlatives and vocabulary. Students will identify true or false statements about family relationships, fill in blanks with missing words to complete sentences about family members, use the correct adjective to describe personality traits, complete sentences with the superlative form of adjectives, and match sentence pairs that describe people using superlatives.
