Procedure (37-47 minutes)
- T introduces herself to students - T introduces the lesson and makes the context of the lesson interesting for the SS
Vocab ex. 1 - SS will listen to a set of email and website addresses and write them down - SS will check their answers in pairs - Then a whole- class check will follow - T puts the answers on board. -T elicits from SS what these are. (= website / email addresses) Vocab ex. 2 - T pays SS' attention to the symbols used in website and email addresses - T checks that SS pronounce them correctly through WC drilling.
- SS are asked to work in pairs As & Bs - T distributes cards A to half of the class & cards B to the rest. If there is an odd number of SS, a group of 3 SS will work together. - As dictate Bs some email and website addresses and Bs write them down. -Then Bs dictate As some email and website addresses and As write them down. -Later As & Bs check their answers. - T moves around and monitors SS, T collects a few errors, if any, for whole class feedback.
- T sets the context of the listening by using the pictures from p. 13 - Gist listening : T plays it only once for SS to do exercise 1. - SS checks their answers with their partners before T does feedback with the whole class - Listening for detail: T plays it twice, if need be, for SS to do exercise 2. - SS check in pairs before T does feedback with the whole class. - T hands out the answer key to SS to check their answers
- T gives SS a small piece of paper and have them write their email address and favorite website ( but not their names). - T makes sure they don't show their partners - T collects all of the papers and redistribute them. - T has SS stand up and mingle - they should say the email address and website until they find the person who wrote it. - T emphasizes that SS shouldn't show each other their papers- they must speak.
On the board, T puts the following questions: * Do you often stay in hotels? Why? Why not? * What's your favorite hotel? * What's the best hospital in your place? T has SS discuss these questions in pairs ( it will likely be a brief discussion). If T has time, she can regroup them so they talk to other people. T can collect a few errors for whole class feedback.
