Main Aims

  • To provide information about shopping using specific expressions in the context of shopping.

Subsidiary Aims

  • To provide clarification of receipt and change in the context of shopping


Warmer (5-7 minutes) • To set lesson context and engage students

I ask students: Do you go to malls? What do you buy? Then they start a pair work. they discuss these questions: Do you like shopping? Why?/Why not? When do you usually go shopping?

Pre-Listening (8-10 minutes) • To prepare students for the text and make it accessible by presenting new some expressions

In this stage I present these expressions: Er, Let me see and I think about it. The first two expressions allow us time to think whereas the third expresses refusal. I do that in a context. Then I ask them to practice them in other contexts.

While-Listening #1 (4-5 minutes) • To provide students with less challenging gist and specific information listening tasks

This is the first listening activity. Students listen to find the correct answer to this question: Which shops are Martina and Alex in? I tell them there are two conversations. The first is between Martina and a shop assistant and the second is between Alex and a shop assistant.They do the task then check pairs.

While-Listening #2 (6-8 minutes) • To provide students with more challenging detailed, deduction and inferencelistening tasks

Students listen again for more specific detail. They do two tasks. They fill in the gaps with the correct word from the the listening material. They answer this question: What do they buy? They do that individually then they check in pairs.

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

There is a game called a disappearing dialogue. Students practice the conversation through rubbing out parts of it till they are able to say it from memory.I ask students to practice the conversation in the context of shopping for a mobile and a bag.

Activity 2 (6-8 minutes) • To provide students with less challenging gist and specific information listening tasks

Students have a list of shopping items . They read it carefully. They listen to Martina and Alex. They underline the things they buy.Then they listen for more specific detail.They will answer some questions.
