Abc WB

Main Aims

  • To provide gist and detailed listening practice about names, surnames, jobs, age, country, city/town, address, phone number, marital status in the context of personal information.

Subsidiary Aims

  • To review, practice and reinforce personal details by providing a post listening speaking practice that has Ss talking to the WC.


Lead-in (3-5 minutes) • To activate Ss' existing knowledge of the topic, to set lesson context and engage students

T will show a picture of Diego and Grace. T will point at the part of the picture that has Deigo's name written. T says his name is......... Her name is......... T will ask S are these Turkish names? So where do they come from? Where are they now? So what is their jobs? T will give 2 minutes to discuss in pair and elicit some guesses about Diego and grace. T will elicit ideas onto the WB.

Listening for gist (2-4 minutes) • To provide students with less challenging gist listening

T will ask S to listen and check if their guesses were right. T will remind S that they are checking for Diego & Grace's jobs and where they are by pointing her finger at the elicited answers on the WB and writing a question mark above or below the answers previously elicited. T plays track 3.8 and has S check their guesses. T will S ask WC is that right? T will write the correct answer on the WB

Detailed Listening (6-8 minutes) • To provide students with more challenging detailed listening.

T presents S with a chart. T tells S to listen and complete the chart. T tells S that they will listen in groups. T gives S 1 minute to look at the chart (you have 1 minute to look at the chart) T plays track 3.8. . T asks Ss to stand up and check with other groups and see if they have the same answer or not. T monitors the groups. Provide S with answer key.

Controlled speaking practice (7-8 minutes) • To provide controlled spoken practice of the TL they have listened to.

T will show Ss HO 2 and will tell them to ask and answer the questions with a partner. T will change their partners. T will give Ss 5 minutes to ask and answer. T encourages a partner to ask about Deigo and the other to ask about Grace. When they finish, T will tell S to check answers with other pairs.

Focus on contractions (6-8 minutes) • Highlight and remind of the usage of contraction

T uses 2 marker sentences from the listening that can be contracted (1 positive, 1 negative). T writes on the WB (He is not married) referring to Deigo (She is a shop assistant) referring to Grace T asks S do you agree? S provides T with gesture indicating the presence of a shorter way of saying the sentence. T will elicit answer. T writes answer on the WB: (He isn't married). (She's a shop assistant). T puts S in pairs. T provides S with a HO and tells S to work in pair, tick the correct sentence. After Ss finish and if enough of them, T asks Ss to stand up, separates them in two groups in 2 columns facing the WB, gives each group a marker. T tells S to write the sentence they hear from the T (extracted from the HO), race to the board. T checks which group has written what they heard correctly. Her name's Anna. She's a teacher. I'm not a doctor. They aren't from Italy.

Post-Listening Speaking activity (8-12 minutes) • To allow an opportunity to talk about themselves regarding the context, to develop oral fluency on the topic and expand on what they've learned

T shows S her ID card. T tells S, this is mine but you also have yours chesting the profile card made by the T. T tells S that they will find out about 4 friends' details by asking them questions. T demos this first. T tells S to stand up. S has two alternatives depending on the number of students. 1- Onion ring: (T demo needed) T puts half of S in an inner circle facing out and outer circle facing in. T helps with the configuration.T gives HO. When T claps S changes moves to a different person. 2. S talk to another S and then changes to another S.
