Lexis for Containers and Drinks
Procedure (38-49 minutes)
I ask the students to name all the drinks they know by asking "what did you drink in the morning?" and "what do you drink in the afternoon?" and try to elicit the answers "(coffee, cola, juice, milk, tea, beer, water, wine)". I will then put the pictures of containers on the board and elicit or expose the meaning, pronunciation and from. Learners receive a handout requiring them to write the corresponding drinks for the containers with a partner. finally they will get the answers on another handout to check their answers.
I Write Perrier, Cappuccino, Guinness, Earl grey, Dom Perignon and ask the students if they know these drinks and what kind of drinks they are.
learners will read a version of text in which the names and clues to the creators have been eliminated. After that they will try to match the drinks with their names and check that with their partners.
I begin this section by clarifying few vocabulary items that are new to the students such as ( blind, brewery and monk) through gestures and pictures. Then we go back to page 22 and I ask "What do all these drinks have in common?" a)They are all more than 100 years old. b) They are all cold drinks. c) They are not English drinks. and ask for a WCFB and ask them to explain why. Ultimately the students scan the page and the exercises on part 3, compare their answers and then I will elicit the answers in FB from all the learners.
learners ask and answer the questions from Ex. 2 on page 22. I will not interrupt them if I spot any errors or mistakes about matching drinks and containers. I will put the errors on board and elicit the correct forms from learners as feedback.
