To provide clarification, review and practice of Simple Past in the context of Holidays
Listening and Speaking
Procedure (34-46 minutes)
Get Ss interested through a brief introduction of a story about typical holidays in my resort home country. Make a link to the previous lesson explaining the listening task to remind them of what the people said in the reading.
Expose ss to the TL in the context through listening (ex 3a) Do the gist tasks for both speakers (ex a and c) first but only one detailed task in the following stage. Use ex d to round off this stage.
Encourage Ss to notice the TL. Use one of Listening tasks ex 3b or 3c
Focus Ss on MFP of the TL. Use the Grammar section on p.128 to design a Guided Discovery task for meaning. Then use p13, Grammar ex 4a-c, to focus Ss on form.If time, use Pronounciation ex a-c.
Check Ss' understanding of meaning and form through a gap-fill. Use p 129 for this.
Consolidate the TL and allow for some production (ex 3f). - Use p 129, U2A ex b to give Ss practice in question forms, then Ss in pairs can interview each other using the questions to bring in some speaking.
