upper intermidiate level
To provide Ss with practice in listening for gist , detail and specific information through a text about a paranormal happening.
to give Ss practice in speaking for fluency
Procedure (45-60 minutes)
I would bring an actual cup of Turkish coffee with me and as my students are Turkish , i assume they will have some background information about coffee fortunetelling , i could use this to help them realize what are they going through as well as giving them some hints to start the activity.
in this stage , Ss will listen to the whole conversation to get a gist of what it is all about, they will be asked to answer some questions like how many people are there in the conversation , their names and...
We have 9 questions about the listening in this part which will be assigned to particular students or groups to each answer their own question at the end of the audio file. Then they will have time to check their answers in their groups and finally share them with the whole class.
A handout containing the script of the audio file is given to the students with some missing words. Ss will listen to the file for the last time , find out the missing words , write them down , check their answers with the partners and finally with the answer key.
Ss will be asked to discuss in groups about the same abnormal happenings in their own lives , a handout with questions is designed for them to to provide some ideas. then , they will be asked to share any interesting story with the whole class
