Free ESL lesson plan – Future Continuous

The following English lesson plan focuses on Future Continuous and is suitable for B2 (intermediate – advanced) English learners. Answer Sheet is available below.

Presentation

1. Listen to the text and draw an airport map.

Next week I will be going to Helsinki for work, and will be having a stopover in Istanbul. I will have only 4 hours before my next flight, hardly enough to go to the city center and spend some time there. That’s why I have decided to spend the time at the airport.

Ataturk Airport is quite big and busy but I hope I will be able to find my way around. As I am looking at the map, I can see that the international terminal has two floors: arrival and departure. Around it, on the whole eastern and northern sides you can see the planes ready to depart.
[adrotate banner=”8″] Next Tuesday, after passing passport control and immigration, I will be going to the business lounge which is at the east side of the terminal. When I am well rested, I’ll be going to the Food and Beverages Sector which is right opposite the lounges, to the west. I will probably be having just a small snack. Then, I’ll be spending some time and money in the Duty Free area which is further west. I have promised my children to bring them Turkish delight.

Waiting for a connection flight might be boring but I’ll be enjoying the airport services.

2. Mark the sentences T for true and F for false.

  1.  Sara will be going to Istanbul for work next week.
  2. She will be having dinner in the city center.
  3. The international terminal of Ataturk Airport has two floors.
  4. Sara will land in Istanbul four hours before her next flight is scheduled.
  5. Sara’s children would be getting Turkish delight for a present.
  6. The duty free area is south of the Food and Beverages Sector.

 

3. Match the beginnings and endings of the sentences.

When next year I go on a world cruise, so I’ll be getting a taxi.
I will probably be driving I will be enjoying every moment of it.
Janille will be joining sailing for three months next summer.
