First i will go for a short discussion with the students , i will ask them if they went lately for a short holiday , i will ask some students to talk about it briefly , after that i will put some vocabs card on the whiteboard next to my picture taken in istanbul , and i will ask them to ask me questions about my trip using the vocabs given eg. (did you take some photos ?) . (did you go for swimming ?)

Stage 2 : reading (8-14 minutes) • Reading for a specific information

before starting the reading task i will do some drilling , going through the vocabs and make sure that students pronounce them correctly I will give the students some general ideas about the text , then i will instruct them to scan the text in 5 min , then i will ask them to answer the questions ( fill in the gaps ) in pairs i will put the exercise on the projector and ask some students to come to whiteboard and fill in the gaps .

( 6 questions ( 6 groups) . they will not write the answer , they will tell me the answer ( some speaking ) , after that i will try to elicit the form of the questions written in the exercise , very briefly , with the participation of the students .
