Lead-In (3-5 minutes) • To introduce and to generate interest in and a short practise of speaking Ss will be asked to discuss two given questions in pairs shortly.

Ss will be asked to discuss one given question in pairs shortly, e.g: What is your daily habit?

Pre- listening / Vocabulary Pre-teaching (5-8 minutes) • To prepare students for the text and make it accessible

I will say: Now we are going to listen to Laura's conversations about her father and his car. But first let's check some of the word. I will try to elicit the word ritual, like this: I will draw a man on the white board and I will write four sentences. He doesn't drink tea. He goes to church every Sunday. He smokes. He drives fast. Then I will ask students . What are these sentences? What do you think? Then they will say oh,these are his habits. Yes, you can also say these are his rituals. Then I will write it on the white board.

Listening for Gist (3-5 minutes) • To provide students with less challenging gist listening tasks

I will distribute handouts to the students and have them listen to Laura talking about her father and his car. They will listen once and link the pharses in A with the phrases in B. Then they will compare their answers with a partner. I will have them work in pairs to complate listening. They will have some sort of task that they will complate. For the text, I'm going to see if they can remember what they listen. I'm going to give them about five minutes to complete this exercise with a partner.

Listening for Details (8-10 minutes) • To provide students with more challenging detailed listening tasks

I will have students listen the article once again for more detail. They are going to do following statements true or false. They are going to compare their answers with a partner. We will check answer as a class. I'm going to give them about eight minutes for this exercise.

Semi-Controlled Speaking Practice (8-10 minutes) • To allow students to speak about the exercise they completed and practice their discussion skills.

Now,they will do exercise three. They will use expressions in the box to complate the sentences. They will work in groups. Then we'll check answers as a class. I will give them about eight minutes to complete this exercise.

Fallow-up (5-8 minutes) • To talk about their own experiences related to the subject.

For this time I will come up with a questionniare, e.g.: Do you have any unusual habits? Give details.Do you have any bad habits? Please explain. Do you think bad habits lead to personal and professional problems? Why/not? Do you think drinking coffee is a bad habit? Why/not?Do you think smoking is a bad habit? Why/not?
