Ordering food and drink
To provide accuracy speaking practice in the context of ordering food and drink in a cafe.
To provide specific information listening practice using a text about listening in the context of in a cafe.
Procedure (29-40 minutes)
The teacher gives the HOs with some vocabulary from the previous lessons scrambled. The teacher write a few examples on the WB and models the activity. T tells students to work in pairs, and gives Ss two minutes to unscramble the words in the list. Full-class feedback will be given.
The T gives a HO which includes all the sentences from 'assistant-customer dialogue', but they are all mixed up. Ss try to find out which sentences are said by the customer, and vice versa.
Ss focus on the conversation between the assistant and the customer. The teacher uses a disappearing dialogue to provide a model for Ss to learn the phrases that the assistant and the customer says in a cafe. First, Ss see the whole conversation, and the T highlights some points. Then in the following slides, some words are missing and SS try to complete the conversation.
First, the T get Ss to repeat the learned phrases by using the pronunciation part in the book, or saying them him/herself shortly. Second, Ss are given a menu template and an order pad. Ss work in groups and create a menu deciding on the prices and the restaurant name. After that, the grouping will change and Ss will get the roles of an assistant and a customer. They will do role-play and practice the target language. The T monitors the Ss and write the mistakes the Ss made on the WB.
Ss will talk to their partners about which cafe is the best, and the T will ask Ss to share their answers with class. Also, the T asks Ss some questions like "What did your first customer want?", to lead them to remember the things they learned. Then the mistakes written on the WB from the role-play activity will be analysed as whole class.
