Task before audio technique. To provide deduction listening practice using a text about world cities in the context of travel.
To provide speaking practice in a conversation in the context of travel
Procedure (32-51 minutes)
Four photos of different places/cities will be placed around the room. T will ask: "What do you think you can do in these places?" "Do you like this place?"
Students will walk around the room in pairs and look at the pictures. They will discuss what they can do in the various places ("go shopping, go camping, go swimming.....")
T will play each of the four audios which correspond to the four pictures, pausing after each to ask: "Which place is it? What did they do there?" **Students will individually write down activities done in the city, then in pairs, establish and discuss where it is and what activities they did there.
T will have the four photos now on the board and several statements underneath. One by one the statements will be shown for students to match with the pictures. **Students will say which statements match which photo. They will come up to the board and place the statement under the corresponding picture.
T introduces the activity and will show students a photo of New York City. T will say "We went shopping, We went sightseeing....") T will distribute photos of different cities and in pairs, one student will tell the other what they did there, but won't say the place. ("I went shopping...." "I went to museums....") The other student will guess the place.
