The students are supposed to talk about their summer holidays with the beginning of introducing themselves. Then they can make a survey to get to know what they all have done in the holiday in the form of group ( which contains 4-6 students).
This lesson is the first lesson of the new term. And the most important point is that it is the first time that the students have met each other. So this is a good chance to get to know each other by introducing themselves. Meanwhile, the teacher can also get to know the students ability to speak English. The teacher may teach the students how to greet and how to let others know you. Also, the students must have a lot of different experiences during the long summer holiday. Therefore, it is a good chance for them to understand what they each do during the holiday. The teacher can ask the students some general questions about their summer holidays. Such as, Did you enjoy your summer holidays? What did you do during your summer holidays? Where did you go in the holidays? Then the students can have group work or pair work---- they exchange their ideas about their summer holidays. The students ( in the form of group )can make a survey about their experiences. And then each group may choose one group leader to give the whole class a report about their groups summer holidays. The group leader may introduce it by using the third person. For example:
Mary went to Shanghai during the summer holidays. She went to many places of great interests, such as …… She thought the most interesting part in her summer holidays was ……
The survey is based on the questions of Part Two of the first lesson. The students can also ask some other questions if like. Or the teacher may ask the students to bring some photos that they took in the summer holidays and them show the photos to other students and explain what the photos were about. The teacher may set an example to the students first by showing her/his photos to the students and them the students may know what they are supposed to do.
After the introduction the students may play a game--- who can recall the other students names and the student who can name the most students names is the winner.
1、區別Nice to meet you 和 Nice meeting you
Nice to meet you用的是一個不定式。而不定式的作用是表示將要做的事情，所以這個詞組常常在剛一見面時說。
Nice meeting you用了一個現在分詞在此表示完成的動作，所以它常常用在談話結束時或分手之前。同樣我們也可以說：
Nice to talk with you. Nice talking with you.
Glad to have you here. Glad having you here.
2、So+ be/ have/ 助動詞/情態動詞+主語 與so+ 主語+ be/ have/助動詞/情態
Example: So+ be/ have/ 助動詞/情態動詞+主語
(1)--- He is a good student.
---- So is my brother Bob. (我弟弟Bob也是一個好學生)
(2) ----She lives in Shanghai. ----So do I . （我也住在上海）
(3)---They have done the work ----So has she. (她也已經做了)
(4)---John can sing songs very well.
--- So can I . (我也能唱的很好)
(5)--- She went to the party yesterday.
---- So did Mike. (Mike昨天也去了)
Example : so + 主語+ be/ have/助動詞/情態動詞
---I think she is a good student.
--- So she is. (是的，她是個好學生)
She always studies very hard and helps others with their homework.
(1) --- I guess the book must be borrowe by John.

(2) --- She did the job successfully.
--- So she did. 是的，她的確做地很成功）And she was praised by the others in her company.
如果表示某種情況也同樣不適用于另外一個人或物， 要用“Neither / Nor + be/ have / 助動詞 / 情態動詞 + 主語” 這個結構。
(1) --- He has never been to Beijing.--- Neither / Nor have I . 我也沒有去過）
I really wish to go there some day in future.
(2) --- I cant swim across the wide river.--- Neither / Nor can my sister. (我妹妹也不能)

Teaching Plan for Lesson One
Step 1 Lead in questions
Introduce yourself to the class by saying Hello everyone. Im very happy to be your new English teacher this term. Do you like English? I am sure that we can become good friends and I will try my best to help you speak English well. Do you want to speak English as well as the native speakers? So you must study hard and do what I will tell you to do. Now Id love to introduce myself to you so that we can become friends very quickly. My name is ……and it is really nice to see you. Now I would love you to introduce yourselves to us. In your introduction you have to tell us what your name is and what middle school you come from and then tell us what you are interested in or what you are good at. (The students can do this task one by one in a very short time.)
Step 2. Listen to the dialogue
Do you want to make new friends when you come to a new school?
Suppose you and a classmate of yours meet at the school gate for the first time at the beginning of the new term. But you dont know each other. So you will have a talk with each other in order to go to the classroom together. And maybe you and her/him will become very good friends later on.
Ask the students to listen to a dialogue that happens in such a case in order that they can know what they should say for the first time two people meet.
The students should find out the answers to some questions that the teacher shows them:
(1) Were Bill and Harry at the same school last year? ( No)
(2) Did Harry know Bob? ( Yes )
(3) How do you know it? ( They were in the same class )
Step 3. Listen to the second dialogue
Ask two students to come to the front of the class. Get to know their names by asking What is your name ? Then the teacher will point to these two students and speak to the whole class, I am very glad to introduce you my new friends. This is Mary and this is John. The students are then supposed to ask these two students some questions to get more information about them. Then let the students listen to the second dialogue which teaches the students how to make an introduction.
Step 4. Practice
The students are supposed to do group work---- four students make a group and each of them give a brief introduction about themselves. After they get to know each other they are supposed to ask and answer some questions about their summer vacation. The teacher may set an example----the teacher may let the students to then ask them some.
