I am going to play a conversation between Piers and his mum at the market. I want you to listen and tick the things they buy from this list (show list). When you have finished I want to know what they don’t buy. I play will a short clip first and you can guess what item is bought. Then I will play the full clip and you tick those items that the Mum buys. What am I going to do first? (play a short clip). What do you do? (tick the items the Mum buys). What will I then do? (play the whole clip). What do you then do? (tick all items that the Mum buys and let me know at the end what items she does not buy at the market). Play first clip. Play whole clip.
Show tapescript. It is the conversation you have just listened to. Mum, Piers and stall holder. Split SS in the three roles. Mime the first example. Issue each SS with tapescript.SS leave seats and stand in their threes – imagine you are in the market. Ask: who are the Mums?/Who are the Piers?/Who are the stall holders? What are you now going to do? SS practise the conversation in role.
Like the shopping list I gave you I want each of you to write your own shopping list items – it should be the food you normally buy . What are you to do?/write list of ten shopping items. SS write list. Split into pairs – stall holder and customer. Mime some representative target phrases (show HO). Distribute HO.
