To provide accuracy speaking practice in a conversation in the context of travel.
Procedure (32-45 minutes)
I will show ss a few photos of various cities across the world and let them guess which one it is. I will end up with a picture of York. As they will probably not guess and know it, I will surround it with words such as "tourists, castle, north" and etc. and make them ask me questions related to York with the provided vocab and will be ready to provide the answers for them.
Ask students to look at the photos. "What can you see?". I will try and elicit the words "a train station", "a play", "a poster", "a castle", "a museum". Here I might pre-teach words such as "map" and "tourist information centre".
Play the recording. Students listen and match conversations with pictures. Whole class feedback takes place.
Give students 1 minute to read through the answers. Give instructions: "Which one is correct?". Play the recording. Ss listen and choose the correct answer. Pair-check and then a WCFB takes place.
p.64 / ex.1 Give instructions: "Complete the phrases". Play the recording. WCFB. Drill each sentence with students.
Write one of the dialogues from ex.2 on the board. Divide the class into two teams. One student from each team reads the conversation while I erase words. When a student can't guess a word the other team gets a point.
