To provide gist and detailed listening practice using a text about future plans in the context of skype conversation
To provide clarification, review and practice of language used for future forms in the context of future plans
Procedure (45-55 minutes)
The teacher asks the SS what type of software they use to communicate with their friends online and elicit the answers until he gets the word Skype. He then asks them when or for what reasons they use it.
The SS try to guess what the Skype conversation is about. With the three options provided, they try to make guesses about what kind of language forms they will hear during the conversation.
The SS try to check their answers with the whole class and the teacher tries to learn the reasons. He wants them to pinpoint the specific language forms.
The SS do a detailed listening exercise here by working with their pairs. They try to decide whether the sentences given are true or false. After they have finished the exercise, the teacher gives the correct answers on the smartboard and the pairs correct where necessary.
If the time permits, (as the teacher needs to make an announcement), the SS do a small speaking exercise.
