E-shopping TP 4 Session 1/3
Intermediate level


In this section of the lesson, students will practice a range of receptive readings skills by undertaking a number of reading activities, both individual and group work, in the context of E-shopping. In the first activity students will practice scan reading (reading for specific information) by being presented with a number of scenarios with the task of choosing the right link to click on on a picture of an e-shopping website. The second activity will allow students to practice skim reading (reading for gist) in small groups by matching descriptions of stores with the store names. The third activity will require students to use intensive reading skills (reading for detail) to determine which stores offer which services.
