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

On this stage, I will ask the stds what they have learnt in the previous lesson and check their previous knowledge to prepare for my speaking lesson (T-WC). Then I will start off with an example of where I am going to go for my vacation this year(T-WC). Then I will ask the same Q by asking "What about you?" (T-WC). I will nominate stds ramdomly to answer my Q.(T-S)

Exposure (6-7 minutes) • To provide context for the target language through a text or situation

On this stage I will show the pictures of 4 types of vacation: Camping vacation, beach vacation, sightseeing vacation and village tourism vacation(T-WC). By showing the pictures I will elicit both the names of the vacation types and the key vocabulary from the students like tent, fisihing pole(T-S).In this stage I will also ask some CCQs to check their understanding.

Controlled Practice (8-10 minutes) • To concept check and prepare students for more meaningful practice

On this stage, the teacher will give out cut-ups to the students. In the cut-up, there are some questions about four different vacation types and the names of the vacations. Students will ask questions from the cut-ups to their partners and their partners will answer their question like "Yes, I am." or "No, I am not". If the questions are directed to the correct stds they will sit at the same table so that this will be a structered speaking activity and a good gruoping method athe same time.

Semi-Controlled Practice (8-10 minutes) • To concept check further and prepare students for free practice

On this stage, the teacher will give stds an activity called "Who is going to....on his/her vacation?" In this activity, students will walk around the class and ask the questions ramdonly to each other from the activity sheet. They will write the names of their friends in the activity sheet if they find a person who does the specific activity on the sheet.

Free Practice (8-10 minutes) • To provide students with free practice of the target language

On this stage, students will be given a sheet with "wh-" questions related to summer vacation plans. First they will answer them by writing individually. Then they will ask these Qs to their partners without refering to their writings.
