Procedure (36-48 minutes)
T asks Ss what do they do in summers and elicits the answer vacation. Then T asks where do they go for vacation. Depending on their asnwers T asks where do they stay when they go to that city and elicits the answer hotel. T tells Ss they're going to stay in a seaside hotel and asks them to discuss and agree on the five most important things that the hotel must have in pairs.
T divides the class into 5 groups. T tells Ss to work alone and fill in the blanks in 3 minutes. ICQs; "How much time do you have to complete it" "Are you going to work alone or in pairs?" Then, T gives Ss the HO1. After that, Ss nominate each other to give and discuss the answers for FB. T gives the HO1 AK.
T determines the areas the Ss have problems with and gives them HO2 to clarify the meaning part. T writes two marker sentences; "We need to book a room before we go to a hotel." "A 5 star hotel has a sauna facility." "The thing you rest your head on when going to sleep is a pillow." And clarfies the form of "to book" and "facilty". Then T drills the pronunciation of "facility" and elicits the meaning of "twin room" and "family room". After that, T asks CCQs: "Do we book a single room or twin room for two friends?" "Do we book a twin room or family room for a family?"
T tells that Ss have 3 minutes to complete HO3 on their own. ICQs; "How much time do you have to complete it" "Are you going to work alone or in pairs?" T hands the papers. Later, Ss check other tables and a WCFB.
