Teaching practice 4
Upper Intermediate level
My aim is to enhance students' listening skills.
My aim is to teach students vocabulary items that are usually identified with malapropism and spoonerism.
Procedure (35-45 minutes)
Teacher reads some sentences that have mistakes out loud. Students are asked to identify the mistake and write it down. After they identify the mistakes, they check with their partners. Teacher then elicits the wrong words and write them on the board.
Teacher tells students that they are going to listen to an audio and explains what they need to do. Students listen and tick the the correct boxes for each type of mistake. After they are done, teacher asks them to check with their partners then gives them the answer key.
Students listen to the audio one more time and try to correct the mistakes people in the audio made. The teacher ask them to check with their partners and gets their feedback. He then elicits some vocabulary items, explains their meaning and does some drilling.
Teacher chest explains exercise 3 and ask students to work in pairs. After they finish, students check with their partners and listen to the audio to check if their answers are correct. Teacher gets feedback and moves to the next stage.
Teacher splits students into 3 groups and ask them to come up with their own examples where words have similar sounds or where their sounds are mixed up. After they write them, they have to share them with the rest of the class and the first group to sat the correct version of the sentence gets one point. The group which gets more points wins.
