Main Aims

  • Practice speaking in the contest of achievements,focusing on how to achieve a goal.

Subsidiary Aims

  • To introduce the related vocabulary(useful language)


Warm-up (6-8 minutes) • Engage the students

I start the lesson with a question to the class:if they have ever written a wish list and what's on the top of their list.

Reading (8-10 minutes) • students can familiarize with new vocabulary and phrases they're going to use in the speaking activity

Students can work in pairs:they have to guess the words in the gaps and match each paragraph to the related picture. Ex a) p.64

Listening (5-6 minutes) • Check answers

I'll check the answers by listening. After listening I'll ask them to underline all the useful phrases they can use to write their own list of dos and don'ts.

Speaking 1 (8-12 minutes) • To get FB on the filling-gap exercise and to make students practice new vocabulary

Students work in pairs:student A give a topic to student B to get a list of tips and vice versa.When they have a list they share their ideas.

Speaking 2 (10-12 minutes) • speaking

I divide the students into 2 groups and I give them the same topic:write a list of tips(at least 5 dos and 5 don'ts)for their teacher to help her to learn Turkish.When both lists are ready each group is encouraged to make comments on other group's ideas.
