Main Aims

  • To provide gist, detailed and deduction listening practice using a text about Charity shopes in the context of Giving to charity and moral dilemmas

Subsidiary Aims

  • To provide clarification, review and practice of Charity shopes in the context of Giving to charity and moral dilemmas


Lead in (5-8 minutes) • The purpose of the lead in is to familiarize students with the topic and it acts as a warm up for studnets to get involved.

I will write the word "charity shops" on the board and ask them to read it and to ask if they know anything about it. If they had pronunciation and definition problems I will correct them .I put them in pairs by naming them "apples and bananas" so that stronger students get mixed with weak students. I explain about charity shops existing in UK and how it is a common tradition so that they will have a clear view of what's coming next.On the bored there would be 3 questions which they will ask each other in pairs.1,do charity shops operate in your country?2, are they popular? 3,what sort of things do they sell?. I ask: what is it called when you give money to charity? the answer would be" Donation". They will repeat it and I write it on the board. I will ask the students to start a discussion about "What is the most common way Turkish people help each other?" They will do this in pairs and then I ask for feed back from 2 or 3 students.

While listening ( listening for gist) (5-10 minutes) • The aim is to listen to get the general idea of the listening about charity shops and moral dilemmas.

listening is the main aim so it will be played 3 times. The aim of the first one is to get a gist . On the board there are 3 general questions related to the listening. I will give them 1 minute to go over it quickly, I will do the ICQ and ask them:"are you going to listen and write? Yes." Then questions will be given to them individually. I explain to them that the listening is about a conversation between a husband and a wife and is about the wife's job.They will listen and answer questions.In the end they will check their answers with their pair ( they change places).I will get feed back by asking "why" and "how" questions.

Listenig for detail (5-10 minutes) • The aim is to listen and to undrestand more specific and deeper part of listening.

This is the second stage for listening.The ICQ will be me asking them: are you going to work in pairs or individually? "in pairs". They will be given a set of detailed questions. I will explain to them how to complete them. The students will have time to look at the board and read the questions to be familiar with them. The same questions will be given to them on paper, they will listen and complete them . At the end they check their answers in pairs . I will get feed back by asking more "why"and "how" questions. third time they will listen to check their answers. I will give them the answer key so that they could check their and answers in pairs. At the end I will CCQ the concept of listening by saying: Did Moira take the money to the bank or kept it to her self?

Post-listening(speaking task) (5-10 minutes) • The aim is to create an opportunity for studensts to use the language and the concept in a real world and to personalize what they have learnt.

For the last stage they will complete exercise 3 which is a pair work. I will ask ICQ and tell them : "are these 3 questions about this listening? yes". They will change partners and look at the bored and read the questions and answer them with their pairs . The feed back would be me asking questions from 3 different people and check the answers.
