A2 ( elemetary) level
To provide scan and detailed reading practice using a text titled "Room to let" in the context of accommodation
To provide ss an opportunity to talk and justify their choices in the context of accommodation
Procedure (41-46 minutes)
elicit the characteristics of good accommodations from the students by writing the word "accommodation" on the board and brainstorming the class ideas then the students work in pairs talk about the kind of accommodation they like to live in if they go to another country e.g. England to study at university, etc. If some of the students are puzzled about the meaning of accommodation, the teacher elicits the meaning from the rest of the class so every one is clear about the concept.
ss get a handout containing some vocabularies and their definitions. They need to work in pairs and match them together Based on the time they took, the checking can be whole class check when ss say the correct answers or they get an answer key to self-check their answers
Ss receive a text of some accommodation advertisements and a chart with two questions on. Ss read the text quickly and then work in pairs or small groups try to complete the information asked on the chart. After finishing the task, ss come to the board and complete the chart (or if their doing the task took long, I'd just project the answer key on the board for the ss to self-check)
ss read the text to understand what are the conditions of each accommodation and then in pairs walk around the class reading the six profiles on the wall and try to match each person with the best accommodation possible based on what they mentioned in their profiles.Then pairs in turn will report their matching results to the class justifying their choices.
Ss work in small groups trying to write a short advertisement about their imaginary accommodation. Then a representative from each group will read their advertisements to the class and they choose the accommodation best suit them.
