Teaching practice 2 Main aim: Listening
To provide specific information listening practice using a conversation in the context of dinner dates
To provide fluency speaking practice in a conversation in the context of dinner dates
Procedure (38-53 minutes)
At the beginning of the lesson I will display two images of dinner dates on the board and have students discuss what is happening in these pictures and guess the topic of the lesson. After reaching the conclusion of Dinner dates through class feedback, Ss will be given a series of questions to answer and discuss in pairs, ending in the description of the meal.
Ss will be given the image for the listening exercise and asked to discuss in groups what is happening in the image and what the people may be saying to one another. This be be followed by some class feedback.
Ss will first be asked to listen to the three conversations and choose one of the three statements that I have provided on the board as the most relevant to the exercise. After class feedback Ss will be asked to listen again but this time they are to circle 5 errors in the images. They will then check one another's answers in groups before coming to circle them on the whiteboard. It is possible students may need to listen once more before realising all 5 errors, as a class we will then discuss the remaining ones and circle them.
Ss will be given a true or false exercise and be asked to listen once more. Afterwards students will discuss their answers in pairs while I stick the answer key around the room. Ss will then get up and check their answers against the key.
Ss will be asked to discuss in pairs. They are inviting a new friend to dinner in their home, what will they cook? What other preparations will they make? This will end in some class feedback, with students explaining what their partner would do.
