Teaching Practice 4
Intermediate level level


This lesson is focusing on a receptive skill, which is listening. The context of the lesson is about "experts". The students will also be pre-learning the necessary vocab. before the listening task. Afterwards they will have a post-listening task, so they will have a chance to perform their productive skills, speaking and writing.

Main Aims

  • My main aim is listening.

Subsidiary Aims

  • My subsidiary aims are vocab. (to clariy the key words at the listening record) and speaking, to improve the communication skills of the students.


Warmer/Lead-in (3-5 minutes) • To set lesson context and engage students

The lesson context is "experts"! I will divide the students into three groups and give them images of objects such as "hair dye", "anti-aging cream", "a diet list" or fashion items. Tehn I will ask them to match those images with correct expert names, such as "hair colorist", "skin-care expert", "fashion consultant" or "nutrition expert". This way, students will warm up for the lesson.

Pre-Reading/Listening (10-12 minutes) • To prepare students for the text and make it accessible

I will have to pre-teach necessary vocab. for the prediction task and the listening tasks.I will teach the words "erupting", "army colonel", "ideology", "honour" and "reason" through the ECDW method. Aterwards I will give the students a prediction task. I will write the name of the book written by Jamieson on the board: "Father Knows Less". They will try to guess what the record could be about.

Gist task • students try to guess the answers to a set of questions. (10 minutes)

Students will be given a set of random questions related to the record. They will try to guess the answers to those questions, before listening to the record. They will have a chance to brainstorm and interact with each other. They will also be using two productive skills, that are speaking and writing through this gist task.

While listening task (gist) #1 (10-12 minutes) • To provide students with less challenging gist and specific information reading/listening tasks

The students will listen to the record twice and try to find the real answers of the questions that were given to them for the gist task. They will work alone while doing this and check with their peers later on. We will do a whole class feed back after this task.

Post-Reading/Listening (8-10 minutes) • To provide with an opportunity to respond to the text and expand on what they've learned

The students will be divided into three groups. Each group will prepare two child-like questions that they're curious about. They can be just random questions from any field. They will write the questions to two seperate piece of papers. In the end, the chief of group A will select someone specific from group B and ask him/her one of the questions. When he/she answers the question he/she will select someone from group C and ask him/her the question. We will go on like this until the end of the class.
