First, I will ask about their weekends because it is Monday, the first day of the week.Then I will ask a question: ''After two days holiday,we are back, what do people do on monday?'' I will wait for the response ''go to work''. I will say that people need money,and for money they go to work. And me too.What's my job? What am I doing?'' and I will elicit their jobs from some of the students.

Pre-Teach vocabulary (5-7 minutes) • To unblock the lexis in the listening and prepare students for the listening.

Can you please tell me some of them?

Prediction Task (4-6 minutes) • To get the students ready for the context.

I will give them a handout. On the handout , they will have 11 words. I will ask them to circle the words that they know to check their background knowledge. If there are still unknown words, I will quickly explain. Then I will show the board an give instruction: Look at the pictures. There are 9 pictures on the board. Now, match the pictures with the words in the box. When they finish, I will ask them to write the correct answers on the board and repeat the vocabulary.

I will show them an handout and tell them to look at the sentences . Then : ''We talked about a and b. Now you will listen to the dialogue again. This time, you will find the correct answer for these 6 sentences.'' will explain the first one as an example. After listening, they will check the answers with their partner and then we will have WC check. If they don't give correct answers for all the statements, I will make them listen the dialogue again.

Before this listening,the students will have a handout. There will be 6 sentences on the handout. This time, they will guess the people who said the sentences. when they finish, they will check with their partners and they will listen the recording to check their answers.

I prepared a puzzle for the students. They will put the letters in order and find out the vocabulary they've seen in the lesson. They will work in pairs and then we will check it all together.

Freer Practice extra (7-9 minutes) • To make students use the vacablary they have learned

The students will play ''hot chair'' game. I will write the new vocabulary on the papers. One student will sit down on the chair, in the middle of the classroom. Others will see the paper in my hand. I will show the paper to the classroom. They will read and try to explain it to the student on the chair but they won2t use the words they have seen on the paper. If the students give the correct answer, he will go back and another one will come and play the game.
