Teaching Practice 1
To review and give students practice forming questions
To practice listening for gist and detail
T shows some pictures of hobbies (e.g football, paragliding, horse-back riding, etc) and ask students to discuss two questions in pairs: 1)What are their hobbies? 2)What is the most interesting sport or activity you have done?
T asks students if they know what paintball is. Have them read the exercise one and discuss the questions with their partner.
T writes up a list of words from the listening text on the board (The big day=an important event --- Nutter=Crazy --- Pellet=A small ball used for shooting). First, T tries to elicit the meaning from students, but if they don't know the meanings, T explain the words and drill the words with the whole class.
T focuses students on exercise 2. T draws 3 people on the board with their names (Dave,Jane and Harry) and tells students that these 3 people are colleagues and they are talking about paintballing. T tells students to listen to the audio and write true/false next to each sentence. Students check in pairs and have the whole class feedback.
T gives students a minute to read the sentences in exercise 3. Then the students have to listen again and complete the sentences. Students check in pairs and the whole class feedback.
T asks students who do you agree with -- Dave, Harry or Jane? Why?
