Procedure (32-48 minutes)
I will begin the lesson by asking what means of transportation in long distances. I will then open a discussion about airplanes and observe what they know about them in English.
At this point I will introduce the vocabulary they will be needing in this session. I will introduce all the pictures in the context of a story and by using images. Stopover--- Round trip-- One way-- Economy-- Business-- First Class-- Flight--- Ticket---
I will play a video " https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oIaGiUX20gU". The video is about an agent and a customer wanting to purchase a ticket.
Right after the video, I will tell them that they will be doing the same thing that they have watched. The students are divided into travelers and airline-ticketing agents. The travelers are given an activity sheet and a role card. The airline ticketing agents are given an activity sheet and the schedule and fares for their particular airline.Travelers go from airline to airline and inquire about airplane tickets. They write the information down that the ticketing agents give them. They use this information to decide which ticket and which airline best suits their role.
