Objective: Talk about superstitons in your country and all over the world, learn about some strange beliefs and about conditional type 1.


First introduce the topic by asking students if they know what a superstition is - for example by asking them if they know what happens if they see a black cat (this is the most common one out there).
Write down the sentence on the blackboard/piece of paper:
If I see a black cat, I will have bad luck.
Ask them if they know the structure. Explain how to create sentences and when you use it, give several examples. Ask them to create their own examples.

Do the next exercises:
matching - please notice the changes according to the person (if girl DRINKS, but she WILL)
filling in the gaps
creating sentences - you need to make changes to create the sentences;

Ask your students to work in pairs and talk about their own experiences with superstitions, encourage them to tell what kinds of supersitions are popular in their homes and countries, and elicit conditional 1.

ADDITIONAL exercise for higher levels: TED-Ed talk

This downloadable printable is recommended for at Advanced (C1) and Upper-intermediate (B2) level. It is great for practising Conditional 1 (first conditional) in English, and is a valuable material for improving your students' Speaking skills. It focuses on the theme of Traditions, national customs.
