B2 level


The students will be introduced to short answers and negatives within conversations. First Ss will be shown a picture that contains five guys in it and will be asked to guess who the people are . T may give hints if students are struggling . They will then check if their answers were correct while playing the listening track ( students should not be allowed to read , just listen). Track then will be played so the students can listen for gist and answer exercise 3 questions . Ss next will be working together to complete the blanks in the interview transcript. Now T will clarify the TL using questions and answers from exercise 3 while drilling pronunciation. Give instructions on how to do Workbook ex7 and 8 page 20 and T will do ICQ. At the end Ss will do ex5 p20 while T does ICQ and CCQ afterwards .

Lead-in (3-7 minutes) • To show Ss a picture and make them predict

T will show a picture to Ss and stick it on the board, T will ask (instructions using gestures ) Ss to predict who the guys in the picture are and will try to give them hints in case they didn't understand the instructions (ICQ) . T will have them do WF after giving predictions .

Listening for gist (10-12 minutes) • To have students listen and verify predictions

T wil play the listening track to verify if Ss predictions are correct . Ss will be paired and will discuss the predictions together while T is monitoring ( Ss shouldn't be given the text although it's said so in the book , they should only listen)

Highlight (10-12 minutes) • To have students work together to complete the blanks in the interview transcript

Students will be paired together in order to complete the blanks of exercise 2 . T's aim at this step is to make them elicit what they learned so far so they can practice together and benefit from each other. T should pair strong Ss with shy or weak SS so that everybody will be engaged . T should interact sometimes and check if they're on the right path ( CCQ)

Clarify (14-16 minutes) • To get to TL (Short answers and negatives) using the questions and answers from ex3

T will clarify the target language using questions from exercise 3 . T will break down the rules and will have Ss make their own sentences to test their understanding . T will do CCQ and will give wrong forms to see Ss reactions and make them correct it themselves. For ex ; Is Istanbul in Brazil ? Answer : No it is not . T will be drilling mispronounced words over and over .

Practice (8-13 minutes) • To provide with an opportunity to practice what they've learned

Ss will mainly be practicing what they've learned through some more challenging exercises from workbook .
