Main Aims

  • To provide gist and detailed listening practice using a text about family and other relationships

Subsidiary Aims

Warmer/Lead-in (3-5 minutes) • To set lesson context and engage students

-T uses pictures from different weddings to have a little brainstorming about who the people on those pictures are as a WC. -Using the pictures, T elicits different relationships among those people and smoothly introduces new vocabulary to the Ss.

Pre-Reading/Listening (4-5 minutes) • To prepare students for the text and make it accessible

-T puts Ss in pairs and gives them a picture of a wedding from the book. -T asks Ss to pick one person in the picture to describe but their partners should be the one guessing who that person their partner is talking about. (3-4 minutes) (give an example)

Pre-teach vocabulary (10-12 minutes) • To pre-teach/unblock key lexis needed to help students understand the text / To pre-teach/unblock key lexis needed to help students complete the next task

-T projects photographs on the WB and introduces new vocabulary to the Ss. (3-4 mins) -T asks Ss what they have learned so far and writes those words on the WB. -T also writes four prefixes (ex-, step-, grand-, -in-law) on the WB and asks Ss to produce different words using those prefixes in groups. -T takes a WC feedback.

While-Reading/Listening (16-18 minutes) • To provide students with more challenging detailed, deduction and inference reading/listening tasks

-T provides Ss with 2 general questions about the dialogue. -T tells Ss that they are about to listen to a dialogue between Dom and Charlie and that they need to listen to it to have a general idea about the dialogue. -T puts Ss in pair and has them answer those two questions. -T provides Ss with a true/false exercise. -T tells Ss that they will listen to the dialogue once more, but this time they need to listen to it carefully in order to catch the details. -T puts Ss into groups of 4 and asks them to answer the true/false statements. -T goes over the true/false exercise very quickly so everybody has the right answers. -T gives Ss jumbled sentences from the listening text and asks them to put those key sentences in the right order of the event and makes them to listen to the dialogue one last time. -T gives the answer key.

Post-Reading/Listening (2-4 minutes) • To provide with an opportunity to respond to the text and expand on what they've learned
