Students work in pairs to decide on the five most important things that a hotel must have. Students give their ideas as an open class activity and teacher writes them on white board to make a list.
Students do the exercise Vocabulary&Speaking1 individually and then compare their answers in pairs. Students check their answers by comparing them with the correct answers on board provided by the teacher. Teacher elicits the meaning of the unknown vocabulary by drawing or pointing and asking concept check questions. e.g.; twin room, double room. ( after drawing a room with two beds, the teacher asks; how many beds are there? Two, Is this a twin room or a double room? a twin room.)Students do the exercise Vocabulary&Speaking2 in groups. Teacher does the first one as an example. Then students check their answers by comparing their answers with other groups as an open class activity.
Students read the article once and match the topics to the paragraphs. They compare their answers in pairs and then the teacher checks the answers as an open class activity.
Students work in pairs and answer four questions about the reading as a detailed reading activity. Students compare their answers with other pairs and give feedback.
Students change pairs / groups and share experience about the best or worst hotels they have ever stayed in.
While students are doing the final free practice activity, teacher collects data on students' language use and then gives language feedback on board in terms of good language and reformulation.
