My main aim is to make students know the meaning, form and pronunciation of the modal verbs(should, shouldn't and must) and use them correctly in the context of "cultural differences".
listening to an interview that include the target language.
Procedure (38-45 minutes)
First, I will mix students because I noticed some of them sit always together and talk a lot during the lesson. I'll say: Who drinks tea 3 times a day? then: Who drinks tea 2 times a day? then: Who drinks tea once a day? then: Who never drinks tea? I'll ask them to stand in line and order themselves depending on the answers of the previous questions. Next, to remind them of the idea of cultural differences I'll say: Do you drink tea in turkey in small glasses or in cups? They'll say: in small glasses. I'll say next: well in England they drink tea in cups. Do you remember any other cultural difference?
I'll give Ss the text and handouts where they have to fill in the gaps according to what they can see and understand from the text concerning the meaning and form of the modal verbs (should, shouldn't and must). It is to test how much they know about the target language. And they check their answers then with their partners.
I'll draw a table on board with three category(should, shouldn't and must) and ask students to write on board their answers. After that I will check them with the whole class and ask some CCQs like: Do we use should, shouldn't and must in the past or in the present? In the present. Can we use them in the future? Yes. With should and shouldn't do we have a choice? Yes. With must do we have a choice? No. Do we use should for advice? Yes. Do we use must for very strong advice? Yes. Then I'll drill the pronunciation and confirm that should is pronounced as /ʃʊd/ not /ʃʊld/.
I'll give Ss cut ups and they have to arrange it in the right order to form a question and they will work in groups. Then each group will check the other then a whole class feedback.
The first exercise will be to fill in the gaps(should, shouldn't or must). Ss do it individually then in pairs they will check their answers. The next exercise is to arrange the words in the right order to make questions. Ss do it individually then in pairs they will check their answers. The feedback for the two exercises will be on handouts.
Ss listen to an interview talks about cultural differences and they have to choose the correct answer according to the listening then they will check their answers in pairs. The feedback will be on a handout.
I will ask Ss to give me pieces of advice to visit my friend's parents which is Turkish and I will give them some questions and the answers will be the pieces of advice they choose. I'll ask them next to see what their partners wrote and to choose the best ones. Then to see what other groups wrote and if there are any similarities. Then I'll mix Ss again by asking: Who likes to go to Japan?, Who likes to go to Thailand?, Who likes to go to Russia?, Who likes to go to an Arab country?, Who likes to go to America?. This way I'll have new five groups and I'll ask them to write some pieces of advice to travel to the country they have chosen. Then they will check their answers in pairs and choose the best ones.
