Listening Past Simple Lesson
A2 Elelmentary level

Description

In this lesson students will have the opportunity to develop their receptive skills by listening for gist and specific information. They will be listening to a relatively complicated text three times, initially for the gist and the following two for the information they need to extract from the text. This will be followed by an exercise of writing the missing letters to make the present and past forms of the verbs. Finally, they will have the opportunity for a semi controlled speaking practice for accuracy and fluency.

After the first listening if I do not get an answer to my initial question I will make them listen once more. When I get the answer of great-grandfather I will ask his name.

I will ask students to look at Exercise 1 on the hand out and listen to the audio once more and try to reply to the 4 questions. I will demo the first question of ''Where was George born ?

When they are all finished I will ask them to check the answers with their friends sitting next to them.
