Distribute gist task activity and have students listen once to the recording. Follow with PC and WCFB by nominating a student. Write answers OB.
Distribute exercise 2 from Global Intermediate page 60. Instruct students to mark T for tiffin and B for bento. Pair check. "Run and report" for WCFB. Instructions: Go out the door and look to your left. You will see a piece of paper taped to the wall. Pull back the green piece of tape and read the answer to question #1. Come back and tell us what the answer is. ICQ: Where is the piece of paper? Are you going to bring the paper inside? Are you going to tell us all of the answers?
Handout ex 3 from Global Intermediate pg 60. Play the recording for Ss as they fill in gaps individually. Check in pairs before WCFB via unfolding paper. Play the recording twice if necessary.
Rearrange chairs so that each student sits face to face with another student. Give students 3 minutes to answer the first question with their partner before rotating to the next seat to answer question 2 with a new partner. (Think speed dating.) Monitor and continue until 3 minutes before the end of class. Give delayed FB OB.
