Speaking Practice Lesson
To give controlled and semi-controlled speaking practice through the context of expats.
Simple Present-positive and negative, verb-noun collocations.
Procedure (25-39 minutes)
The students will be given an example text to read, while the teacher is putting prompts on the whiteboard. The students will them write a new life for themselves based on what they have just read using the prompts on the board to help them out. The students are then put into pairs and tell each other about their new life.
Students are then put together with another pair and then they have to introduce their partner to the other pair. Students are using the third person, eg. he or she.
The students are put back into pairs. Show the students the worksheet. Explain to them that the worksheet is about expats and that they have to fill in the gaps by asking each other questions. All of the empty boxes in table A should match the boxes in table B and vice versa. Both tables should be exactly the same. Students are not allowed to show each other their pieces of paper. After all the boxes are filled, the students look at the information and read the complete sentences to each other.
