In this lesson, Ss can learn about different jobs and workplaces. they are also supposed to learn different forms of collocations by focusing more on prepositions. Teachers can do it by enlarging the pictures and introducing themselves by telling about their job and the place where they work. Ss also can learn it by matching the pictures or working in groups in order to use the words accurately and fluently. To add extra information about jobs Ss can be put in a conference game ( preparing some cards for the new words). Organizing a mingling activity in pairs for the Ss can be a good speaking practice as long as teachers use a different form with their colleagues.
