Lesson plan overview

This lesson plan focuses on sports psychology and techniques each of us can use in our everyday lives. it is aimed at intermediate and upper-intermediate students. Students will learn adjectives to describe traits of sportspeople, watch a video and speak about the topic. You can combine it with the lessons “Dealing with setbacks and failure“, “Doping in sports“, “Phrasal verbs: psychology“, “Idioms: sports performance“, and “Phrasal verbs: role models“.

Vocabulary: the lesson starts with an activity to revise and expand vocabulary about personality traits (self-discipline, drive, passion, determination, self-confidence). Students discuss which are the necessary traits athletes need to reach top level. After that, there is a pre-listening vocabulary matching exercise followed by a few questions in order to practise the target vocabulary.

Listening: Students watch a video named “4 secrets from sports psychology you can use in everyday life” and complete a table with relevant information from the video. Then work on prepositions used in the video.

Grammar: The grammar focuses on the structure “the+comparative…, the+comparative” with 2 exercises to encourage conversation.

Homework: 3 research topics are suggested which aim to develop the topic further. The topics, combined with the additional resources provided on theenglishflows.com provide plenty of extra opportunities for contact with topic-related vocabulary in order to reinforce and enrich it.
