To provide gist and detailed reading practice using a text about Hostels in the context of places to stay at during a trip
To provide speaking practice and introduce some new vocabulary
Procedure (36-46 minutes)
I will show Ss some pictures to show that we are going to talk about traveling. T: in pairs talk about 3 places we can stay at during a trip after some time I ask Ss to give me some answers (try to elicit "hostel")
I will show Ss some pictures of different hostels. T: in pairs talk about what do we call a "hostel"? I will ask for some answers,I will try to elicit words like: cheap, roommate, other people, share, ...
T: Tell me the the country of the hostel we have in text in 1 minute. (can we talk?- No) I will give them handouts in two different colors and give them 1 minute to find the answer. T: anyone knows the answer? why did you choose that?
I will put Ss with same paper color in same groups and ask them to answer the questions. here I can clarify the meaning of some words if needed. after a while I give each group an answer key and ask them to practice to memorize every answer. T: find someone from another group and sit in front of each other. (don't bring your papers) Ss ask and answer questions that they have memorized.
In their pairs, I ask Ss to take a look at their texts and talk about which one of these hostels is better for them. At the end I ask from Some Ss to tell me which one is their choice and why.
