Procedure (36-49 minutes)
T will welcome all Ss and tell them about the absence of one teacher. T will also be careful with sitting arrangements at this point and make necessary changes for further grouping and pairing.
T will put a picture of two people talking on the board and ask the following questions for the Ss to answer first in pairs and then for the class in order to both elicit some vocabulary items and set the context: - Who are these people? - What do you think they do on weekends or after work?
T will give out HO1 and monitor the Ss work on it and monitor the Ss work. If there are any vocabulary that is not familiar for more than 1 person, it will be elicited for the whole class. An exercise will be done, using the target language and vocabulary items to make the content of the next stage (listening) more clear for the Ss. It is then checked in pairs, then with the answer key from the board.
Ss will be given the HO and asked to stay on page 1. They will listen to a recording and fill in the gaps. The answers are checked in pairs and then the answer key goes on the board and the Ss will check their answers. The questions are then drilled as a whole class.
Ss will be asked to answer the following Qs in pairs after they listened to Tanya and Robert as they are looking at their picture on the board: - Where are they? - Are they good friends? PART A of HO T will check their answers as a whole-class.
The Ss listen to the recording again and are asked to answer PART B, then check in pairs. Then the answers go on the board and the Ss check their answers. If there was a part that someone could not get, the listening will be played again, this time with a pause after the information needed.
Ss are asked to answer PART C while listening, check their answers with their pairs then, and check their answers with the board afterwards. False sentences will be corrected.
T will give out HO2 and ask the Ss to choose the correct answer, check in pairs and then check with the board. T will then model the pronunciation and drill. The Ss will also answer the questions on the HO about themselves.
Ss are asked to get up and find a pair and make a similar conversation with them. Pairs are changed as and when instructed by T. T will monitor and take notes of any common mistakes in order to help correct them in the next stage.
Ss will be asked to make a list of 5 different free-time activities such as: - going to the cinema on weekends - having coffee with friends on Saturday - doing sports on Sunday in the morning They are asked to go around the class and Find Someone Who does all those things and will do them with the speaker. Modeling will be applied for instructions with a strong S.
The Ss are asked to sit back down and are asked to correct the sentences on the board with the person beside them. The answers are shared with the class.
