Lesson Overview

What skills do you have under your belt? In this lesson, students will discuss different skills and abilities people may have. Students will learn and practice using adverbs to describe how to do certain things 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 practice using adverbs to describe how certain actions are performed. The focus will be on forming adverbs from adjectives, using them in sentences to modify verbs, and understanding irregular adverbs. This includes recognizing how adverbs answer the question “how” something is done.

  • Speaking: Students will engage in discussions about various life skills and abilities, expressing opinions on what skills are important and why. They will describe how actions are performed in their daily lives or in specific professional contexts, using adverbs to detail the manner of these actions.

  • Vocabulary: The lesson introduces vocabulary related to skills and abilities, such as "communicate," "make decisions," "negotiate," "do chores," "study," "use a computer," and adverbs that describe the manner of performing these actions like "carefully," "patiently," "quickly," "clearly," "rudely," and "enthusiastically."

  • Homework: Homework exercises are designed to reinforce the lesson's focus on adverbs and vocabulary related to life skills. Students will correct underlined verbs, choose incorrect options in sentences, rewrite sentences using adverbs, fill in blanks with phrases indicating proficiency levels (e.g., "really well," "quite well"), and select the correct adverb forms to complete sentences. They will also answer questions about personal proficiency in various skills, using adverbs to express the manner and quality of their abilities.
