To enable students to learn how to speak if they go to a restaurant in an English-speaking country.
Procedure (35-47 minutes)
The teacher greets students and creates a positive impression. He then that they are going to watch a video. You are going to watch a video and answer these questions (chests the questions) Once done, the teacher elicit the answers then ask them what they think about eating out in restaurants and if they usually do so. After the students schemata is activated, the teacher could carry on to the next stage.
The teacher tells students that they are going to listen to an audio and that they need to tick the different food the speakers order on the menu. After they are done, students are encouraged to check answers with their partners. Then the teacher gets feedback and moves to the next exercise.
The teacher asks if there was any word students didn't understand in the audio. If they are reluctant to answer, he then starts presenting and checking some words that are supposed to be difficult for this level. After he elicits the meaning of the words, the teacher does some drilling and also shows students where stress is. Once the words are clear, the teacher moves to the next stage.
The teacher tells students that he is going to play the audio a second time and that this time they need to complete the dialogues with the words they hear. Listen again to the audio and this time complete the dialogue in exercise two. After they are done, teacher encourages them to compare their answers with their partners and then takes their feedback and moves to the next stage of the lesson.
Students tell students that they are going to listen to another audio. Students need to listen carefully as they need to be able to figure out what happened at the end of the story. Now you are going to listen to another audio Listen carefully and try to find out what happened at the end of the audio. Once done, students are asked to share their answers with their peers.
