Warmer/Lead-in (5-10 minutes) • To set lesson context and engage students

Teacher writes on WB: good morning everybody! i'm tuğba yıldırım. i'm from bursa, turkey. Ask what's the problem with these sentences. Ellicit answers from students, Clarify the rules for using the Capital Letters. *At the beginning of a sentence, for I, for countries, for cities, for names. Clarify that we use capital letters for the UK and the USA. We don't use capital letters with things: It's a camera, it's a pencil, etc..

Exposure (12-16 minutes) • To provide a model of production expected in coming tasks through reading/listening

Ask students to look at the pictures and guess their jobs. Show a business card to the students and ask what it is? Point the business cards on the book and tell students to read the cards and match them with the people in pairs. Handout sets of cards from exercise 2 without options. E.g. Scott David is a manager. He's from Sydney. Practice the Language in SB 2a Exercise 11, which will help the students remember and practise this important daily language use, and the new students to keep up with the previous information. Write on the board: A: Scott David is a manager. B: I think that's true/false. A: Yes, you're right. / No, you're wrong. Drill the phrases individually and chorally to make sure they can use it comfortably. Ask students to stand up make two lines to face eachother, Model once with a student and !step away from the process to monitor.

Useful Language (10-14 minutes) • To highlight and clarify useful language for coming productive tasks

In order to "storify" the ongoing of the lesson, Ask questions about people in the context to clarify use of more points where capital letters are used: Ask students: What's Janet's company's name? WB: city computers - companies Is she married? We don't know. WB: ms. Janet Richards. - titles What's Lucy Smith's address? WB: 76 queen street, Manchester - addresses What's her postcode? WB: m18 3js - postcodes What's Scott's nationality? WB:He's australian. - nationalities Clarify: postcode (UK) = zip code (US) Exercise 4: Make a relay race. Put sentences onto strips of paper and put them into envelopes. Sts are in teams with one envelope per team. Sts take it in turns to take one sentence from the envelope and add the capital letters to it. Handout answer keys per pair and ask students to check.

Productive Task(s) (10-12 minutes) • To provide an opportunity to practice target productive skills

Exercise 5: To continue "storifying" the lesson, say: Lucy is on a tour now( acting out in different cities), and she's come to the Park Hotel. Please look at her business card again, and fill in the online hotel form. Students do this part in different pairs and change their pages with another pair to check. Monitor and give individual feedback. Exercise 6: Say: You go to see Lucy's theatre play and you stay in the same hotel (the Park Hotel). Please fill in the form by yourself. Students fill in the form and check with pairs..
