In this lesson, students will do Listening and speaking activities. The lesson starts with a lead-in to set the context where T shows Ss some funny images to elicit the words "Weekend Activities". T will then pre-teach some vocabulary by showing Ss some pictures and eliciting the words from them. Ss will be asked to listen and choose the topics they hear on the recording. There will be then some scan and detailed listening exercises followed by a speaking task as a post-listening activity.


Main Aims

  • To provide gist, specific information and detailed listening practice using a listening about weekend fun in the context of weekends

Subsidiary Aims

  • To provide fluency speaking practice in a conversation in the context of vacation


Warmer/Lead-in (3-4 minutes) • To set lesson context and engage students

In this stage, T will show Ss some funny images of different weekend activities and ask Ss some questions to elicit the words "Weekend activities" to set the context. To warm Ss up, T will then ask which one their favorite weekend activity is.

Pre-Listening (7-8 minutes) • To prepare students for the text and make it accessible

After the lead-in, T will pre-teach vocabulary through the slides of the pictures. Then Ss will try to match and stick the cut-ups to the pictures. Finally, the main picture of the listening text will be shown and the characters of the conversation will be introduced.

While-Listening #1 (7-8 minutes) • To provide students with less challenging gist and specific information reading/listening tasks

In this part of the lesson, T will ask the Ss to listen to the recording once and choose the topics the speakers have talked about. Then, T will ask the groups to discuss their answer and see if they have chosen the same topics. After giving FB and writing the answer key on the board, T will move on the next stage of listening.

While-Listening #2 (10-12 minutes) • To provide students with more challenging detailed, deduction and inference reading/listening tasks

There are 2 activities in this part: scanning and detailed questions. First, Ss will be asked to look at the questions and underline the key words. T will do the first question as an example. Then they will be asked to choose either True or False option for each statement while they're listening. T may need to play the recording twice. Ss will then check their answers and discuss them. Finally, T will give feedback by checking and talking about their answers.

Post-Listening (10-13 minutes) • To provide with an opportunity to respond to the text and expand on what they've learned

In this part, before Ss start doing the task, T will model how they are supposed to do the task. Then each student will be given a set of questions and asked to imagine they went on vacation. They will be required to come up with any holiday destinations using the questions they have. Then one student in each pair is supposed to prepare a talk about their vacation. The partner will guess where the speaker went on vacation.
