Theme: “Transport  in Our City”

Objectives: practical: to develop pupils’ speaking skills; to practice using active vocabulary on the topic; educative: to develop pupils’ readiness for taking part in the process of English communication; developing: to incorporate team work; to teach pupils to express their opinions; to develop a creative way of thinking and the ability to think logically; cultural: to teach pupils to respect each other.

Equipment: Click on 2 (Work Book, Student’s Book), cards with grammar task, blackboard, pictures with transport, papers, pencils.

I. Introduction. Greetings. Good morning my dear students. It’s so nice too see you. Are you happy to have our English today?

Ps. – Yes.

So, let’s sit down and start our work.


II. Introducing the theme and expected results.

Look at the blackboard. There is a theme of our lesson. But all the words in it are written together. Try to divide these words and read the theme of our lesson.


Pupils read the theme.

Well-done. At this lesson we’ll have a discussion about the advantages and disadvantages of different kinds of transport in our city. Before the end of the lesson you’ll learn to express your own opinion, give arguments and discuss it in groups using active vocabulary on the topic.


III. Warming up

To check your knowledge about the kinds of transport guess my riddles:

This is a house on wheels in running a race,

Taking people from place to place.  (A bus)

Houses run upon these rails

Over hills and over dales. (A railway and a train)

When it is driven it goes,

When it stops, it falls down. (A bike)

We’re half a tram and half a bus,

Will you come and ride in us. (A trolley-bus)

What is it? That has no wheels

And leaves no tracks behind it? (A boat)

Through not a bird, not a butterfly,

I can fly high up in the sky. (A plane)

Great. You’re very smart. You’ve guessed everything. Make up a sentence with these words and tell us.


IY. Main part

Answer the question: What kind of transport do you prefer and why?

Take the first sheet of paper and read with me:

Traffic, black cab, underground, crowded, stressful, double-decker, economical, tiring, comfortable, convenient, safe, frustrating


Match these words with their definitions.

Traffic                                    a railway system under the ground

black cab                                involving or causing a lot of pressure or worry

underground                           the vehicles moving along a road or street

crowded                                 London taxi

stressful                                  containing a lot of people, especially too many

double-decker                        a bus with two levels

economical                             pleasant to use or to spend time in

tiring                                       used about something that is not expensive to make, to buy, or use

comfortable                            making you fell annoyed and impatient because you are

prevented from achieving something

convenient                              making you feel tired

safe                                         easy to use or suitable for a particular purpose

frustrating                              not likely to cause any physical injury or harm

Let’s revise the degrees of the adjectives. Form comparative and superlative degrees from these adjectives. Traffic, stressful, economical, tiring, comfortable, convenient, safe, frustrating.


Take next sheet of paper and using these words (slower, worse, more, faster, better, more, more) fill the gaps.

Fill the gaps.

1. Buses are _______ than taxies.

2. Today the traffic is _______ than yesterday.

3. The first class compartment is _______ expensive than the second class.

4. In rush hour a taxi isn’t _______ than a bus.

5. In summer the weather is _______ for travelling than in winter.

6. Rickshaws in China earn _______ than in Madagascar.

7. The job of a pilot is _______ stressful than a taxi driver.

Read the sentences.


Scrambled Story. Cut up a story in separate strips of paper. Students then attempt to reorganize the pieces into a whole that makes sentence. Divide pupils into pairs.

Put the text in correct order.


If you are on holiday in London, travel by bus. London buses are called double-deckers. They have a driver and a conductor. Look at the sign on the front, on the side or on the back of the bus to know where the bus is going. Read a notice board at the bus-stop to know the places on the bus route.

When you get on the bus, the conductor says, “Fares, please”. You say where you want to go, he tells you how much to pay, you pay him and he gives you a ticket. Keep it till the end of your trip!


You can get to most places in London very quickly by the underground. There are many lines on the London Underground. All the lines are of a different colour on the map. Buy the ticket from the ticket-office at the Underground station, or from the automatic machine. Keep the ticket till the end of your journey.


If you are in a hurry, the fastest way of travelling is by taxi. Do you know what a London taxi looks like? Their special shape and black colour are famous all over the world. The black cabs as they are called, have become the symbol of London. Now the taxi drivers have their cabs in different colours – red, green, even silver. And soon the shape is going to change, too. London drivers have green badges on their jackets. They have to know all the routes around the capital perfectly.

Let’s check.

Please, answer my next questions

1.  Whom can you see in the double-decker?  (We can see a driver and a conductor.)

2. What did you know about London underground? (There are many lines of different colours on the map of the London underground.)

3. How does a London taxi look like? (Nowadays they are in different colours: black, red, green, even silver.)

4. What interesting information have you learnt from the text? (I learnt that the black cabs had become the symbol of London.)

    Уважаемые коллеги! Спасибо за отзыв огромное-огромное. Когда был анализ урока мне тоже указали на этот пункт, а если еще и добавить, что это была тема моей методической проблемы, то вывод был: не знаю англ., не знаю методику преподавания и не знаю интернет.

    От ИКТ отошла сознательно, обычно приношу на урок свой ноутбук, на нем и работаем. А здесь решила без технологий.

    С уважением, Маргарита Калюжная

    В целом урок понравился. Спасибо. Но не везде даны предполагаемые ответы, что затруднит контроль на уроке. И. конечно, желательно на уроке использовать ИКТ
