Lesson overview

In this A2 ESL lesson, the student will read and talk about past events (mostly holidays) using past simple forms of irregular verbs.


Warm-up discussion

The student reads a quote about holidays and discusses what they like doing on holiday, where they like to go, and their overall experience with holidays.


Grammar: Past Simple – irregular verbs

Irregular verbs are explained and some of the most frequent irregular verbs are presented to the student (e.g. eat – ate, drink – drank).

The student then learns irregular forms by matching them with their present forms.

Then, they need to transform sentences in the present tense into the past tense, most of them being irregular.

The student reads a few paragraphs about a holiday with a friend and completes the sentences with the correct irregular past forms from the box.

As a wrap-up, the student talks about their past holidays as well as their plans for holidays in the future.
