To provide accuracy and fluency speaking practice in a conversation in the context of travel
Procedure (44-51 minutes)
Students look at the photo of someone who is in trouble while travelling. Elicit what is happening in the photo and ask the question; What are the worst things that can happen to you when you are travelling? Students talk in small groups of 3 or 4. Write the answers from the students on board as a list and then as a class students choose the worst three.
Students look at some pictures on board and brainstorm as a class to find the correct vocabulary. Write useful vocabulary around corresponding pictures.
Students complete the puzzle and check their answers in pairs. Write the answers on board by getting the feedback from students.
Students fill in the gaps in the questions and check them with the answers provided by the teacher on board.
Students get up and move around the classroom to ask the questions in the gap-fill handout. Students ask the questions to two different students.
Students share their worst travel experiences in small groups of 3/4. Teacher monitors closely.
