The main aim is reading.
The susidiary aim is lexis.
Procedure (45-55 minutes)
The teacher will put some pictures on the whiteboard and shortly discuss with them about the pictures. All of the pictures are related to the text and the context. One picture is related to a word from the text (gate-ball) which the students would otherwise have trouble with. Once the topic has been defined we will go on to the task.
Task 1 will have the students pair up. They will answer the questions according to their own opinions. Their handout will be folded and they are not to unfold it until the next task. The teacher will write the letters a-f on the board and have volunteers come up to write the correct word/words. The teacher will go over and correct this.
Task 2 is to read the text. Now the students unfold their paper and read, looking for the answers in task 1. The teacher needs to remind the students about the meaning of gate-ball and show them where it is found in the text. The other vocab words will also need to be taught right now. Then they start the task, they are to work individually. After 10 minutes the teacher asks for students' answers and gives the correct answer finally, which is 'all of them'.
In task 3 students are to work individually and the first person to finish this task is the winner. The teacher must first explain the meaning of extended family before this handout is given by referring to it in the text.
Task 4 the students are to do the part called 'Anecdote' with a partner. They will discuss about the healthiest person they know and what that person does to stay healthy. At the end of the task the teacher will ask the students to share what they came up with, specifically what the most important aspect to being healthy is in their opinion.
