Main Aims

  • To provide clarification, and practice of language used for advice in the context of the recruitment

Subsidiary Aims

  • To provide fluency speaking practice in the context of the recruitment


Clarification (10-15 minutes) • To clarify the meaning, form, and pronunciation of the target language

T will write 'You should think about your future career' on the board, and ask sts to tell where they heard this before. After getting answers from the sts, she will say let's find more sentences from the listening part. T will show HOs to the sts and tell them to reorder the words to make questions and sentences. Sts will have 3 minutes. They will work in pairs. ICQs; Are you going to work individually? (No) Are you going to order the words to make sentences? (Yes) How many minutes do you have? (3 min) After the activity, t will project the answers. She will clarify the form analysis (see Language Analysis) by asking CCQs: T will point the sentences and ask CCQs. After should/shouldn't, what do we use? (infinitive) After would, what do we use? (infinitive) After why don't you, what do we use? (infinitive) After how about, what do we use? (verb + ing) Later, sts will be asked to separate them into two as giving and asking for advice. Also, t will ask which ones are stronger advice and weaker advice. Finally, t will put the stresses on the sentences on the board. After her, the sts will repeat them (for more information please see Language Analysis).
