The main aim is for the students to practice their listening skills and the sub skill of understanding the gist in the context of a doctors appointment.
The subsidiary aim is for the students to practice functional language in the context of a doctors appointment.
Procedure (39-53 minutes)
Firstly we will use the projector to show a short 10 second video of a person entering a doctors office and starting a conversation about his health. As a whole class the students will be asked what the video who the people in the video were (doctor and patient) and what was happening (doctors appointment) One this is established students will have a short time to speak to each other in pairs about their experiences with doctors appointments and what they think about doctors in Turkey. This similar to exercise 3 in the listening section but has been moved to the beginning to personalise the context.
The students will listen to the first short conversation between a doctor and patient and have to answer what the patients symptoms and treatment was. They will get two chances to listen. The students will pair check and we will check as a whole class. We will then repeat this for another conversation between a doctor and a patient.
Students will receive a gap fill exercise based on the conversation they listened. They will complete it in pairs and then check. We will check the answers as a class.
Students will receive an exercise with 10 phrases that are used in a doctors office. As a group they will label them as either doctor or patient depending on who would have said the phrase.
Students will each receive the gap fill exercise and after filling in the relevant words they will peer check and they will go through the answers with the teacher.
Students will be asked to stand up and will be put in to random pairs. They will have equal time to role play being a doctor and a patient.
