How to teach the Somebody, Something lesson
Before we begin, remember:
- We use some in positive sentences (e.g., I usually eat some bread with pasta)
- We use some for offers and requests (e.g., Would you like some tea?)
This lesson goes over:
- how to use somebody, someone, something, and somewhere
- how to use anywhere and nowhere
- how to form sentences with something/anything + adjective/infinitive (e.g., something new, something to drink)
Students will have plenty of opportunities to practice through fill-in-the-blank questions and create their own sentences.
