Teaching Practice 4
Elementary level


In this lesson, Ss will learn some words related to the free time activities. They will learn it in the same context. A listening activity follows the vocabulary part and provides them with information about a man who works in Antarctica and especially his free time activities. At the end Ss will work in pairs and produce the language that has been promoted in the listening.

Main Aims

  • To provide gist and detailed listening practice using a text about Free time ctivities in the context of Working in Antarctica

Subsidiary Aims

  • To provide clarification and practice of Free time activities


Warmer/Lead-in (3-5 minutes) • To set lesson context and engage students

by using the OHP, I show Ss a table that gives them an opportunity to guess the context. Afterwards, I ask some questions (Do you like weekends?, Do you go out with your friends?, Is it good to work at weekends?) to engage them and attract their interest. Then, I play a short clip related to the topic. After the video, I elicit "Free time activity".

Teaching Vocabulary and Pre-Listening (10-12 minutes) • To introduce new vocabulary and prepare students for the text and make it accessible

I introduce the vocabulary one by one by using pictures and try to elicit, drill in different patterns and show them the written form to Ss. Then I show them the pictures again and they have to remember the words. From "go skiing" on, I focus on the form (go+verb+ing) and I also highlight the use of 'the ' in 'listen to the radio'. Then, I give them HO1 and give instructions by OHP and Ss should stand up and do the task in a mingling activity. After a short time Ss sit down and I do an open pair feedback. Afterwards, I elicit "Antarctica" and "Weather station" by pictures. At last, I show them Paul's picture and They should answer some questions before listening to the recording.

While-Listening #1 (10-12 minutes) • To provide students with less challenging gist and specific information reading/listening tasks

I give them HO2 and instruct them to listen to the recording and answer the questions and then they check their answers with a partner.Afterwards, I do a WC feedback.

While-Listening #2 (14-16 minutes) • To provide students with more challenging detailed, deduction and inference reading/listening tasks

I give them HO3 and instruct them to answers some detailed questions while listening. Then, they check their answers in pairs and whilst I give them HO4 as an answer key.

Post-Listenign (8-10 minutes) • To provide with an opportunity to respond to the text and expand on what they've learned

I give them a chart that shows the different activities that Paul does in his free time. They should make some questions about him regarding the chart in pairs.
