Elementary level


In this lesson, students learn how to ask and give answers about prices through a PPP based on a listening conversation about Kate and the ticket seller at the cinema. The lesson starts with eliciting some places that the teacher go to in her/his free time using pictures. This is followed by an activity where students should elicit the name of the places at the adverts which the teacher will hand them. Later there is some semi-controlled practice through a pair work activity where students will dictate some prices to each other. Finally there is a scan listening where students listen and get a specific answers to fill the gaps.
