Lesson Plan Text
Cambridge First Certificate (FCE) Use of English Part Two Brainstorming Games
Part One – Prepositions in Use of English Part One Open Cloze
Your teacher will read out one of the prepositions from gaps in real FCE Use of English
Part Two papers below. Work together to brainstorm as many (full) example sentences
with that word as you can, avoiding words that you have already used. You get three
points per sentence, but lose one point per repeated word. Your teacher may restrict what
parts of speech are allowed, e.g. not allowing “like” as a verb.
When your teacher stops you, your example sentences will be passed to another group to
check. They can challenge your sentences if they think an example sentence is wrong, but
they will lose three points if their challenge is wrong.
Do the same again, but this time with one team choosing which preposition above they
want everyone to brainstorm example sentences for.
Do the same again, but this time with different teams choosing different prepositions to do
it with at the same time.
Do the same again, but with use of dictionaries allowed.
Do all the same games for the more expanded lists of words which can go in gaps in Use
of English Part Two on the pages below.
