To develop skills of speaking for accuracy and fluency
To practice transport vocabulary
Procedure (31-47 minutes)
To revise the transportation vocabulary (a car, a taxi, a plane, a train, a bike, a motorbike, a bus, an underground, a ferry) I stick the pictures onto the board. Divide a class into two groups to line out in front of the board facing it. We play the game - find a word. I name a word and they should find it pointing to the word. I add up a point every time to a team who made that faster. Then we sum up the points and reveal the winner. After we do a a fast review of the words, and drill the names of the transportation one by one and in chorus.
I divide the class into 3-4 groups and handle a pack of mixed words with four questions -How do you get to work? How long does it take? Do you like the journey? How much does it cost? Students put the words into the correct order. When they finish I open Power Point with the question themselves, stress and intonation are underlined. We drill the sentences.
To instruct the students to have a small talk to at least 3-4 other students in the group asking them these four questions and writing their answers into the empty lines. They are being handed a chart with 4 questions given. While they make these I follow the groups and observe them regarding all the possible errors they may have. Make notes. I put the errors I hear on the board not naming those who made them. We do corrections as a class.
To finish off the lesson I offer my students to listen to the sounds of transportaation in order to guess what kind of transport it is. For this purpose I use a video from utube using only a soundtrack to it to make the students guess.
