The teacher asks the students what they can remember from the two places that they have studied. (Phuket and Bangkok). Then students talk in pairs and the teacher elicits the answers from the students. Then, the teacher draws two pictures of a man and a woman on the board and introduces them to the students: This is Monica and this is Luke. The teacher says that these two people want to go to Thailand for a holiday.
The teacher tries to elicit the word "terrible" and its meaning from the previous lesson from the students. Then, the teacher asks what is the opposite of terrible and tries to elicit the word "fantastic" from the students. If the students can't give a proper answer, the teacher will write the word "fantastic" on the board.
The teacher asks the students to listen to Monica and Luke and say where does each person want to go. And find one reason why they want to go there. Teacher asks ICQs: 1.Are going to write something? (No) 2.How many reasons you should find? (One) Then, the students listen to the track. They discuss their answers in pairs and the teacher elicits the answers from the students.
The teacher says I'm going to give you a handout. There are six sentences on it. The teacher says listen to Monica and Luke again and write true or false. The teacher gives the handout to them and students will listen to the track. They check their answers in pairs and then, some of the students will come to the board to write true/false next to the sentences on the board.
The teacher gives a handout (exe 7.b) to the students and asks to complete these sentences with comparative adjectives.Students do the task individually and then, they check their answers in pairs. The teacher puts the answers on the board for the students to check again.
First, the teacher puts the students in groups and asks choose Phuket or Bangkok for their holiday and give reasons as well. The teacher monitors the students for accuracy mistakes and makes notes. Then, the teacher asks the students to do exercise 10.a and fill the gaps about their own city and their lives. Then, they say their answers in their pairs. Following this, the students have to add two sentences to each part. Finally, the teacher puts the students in new pairs and asks the students to say the new sentences to their new partners.
