TP5 - Across Cultures
A1 level


In this lesson, students will be engaged in a vocabulary matching exercise where they will be learning a few words that are relevant to the context and mentioned in the readings. After the exercise, students will work on their receptive skill development by reading for the gist and detailed information through two reading texts about hostels. Finally they will be focused on their productive skill development by speaking for accuracy and fluency.

-Project matching exercise on WB -Pair ss and tell them to match the words with the definitions or pictures -Demonstrate, match one yourself -Give them HOs -Give the answers on WB

Stage 3 (Pre-Reading) (4-6 minutes) • To provide students with less challenging gist and specific information

-Divide the ss into two groups (A and B) -Show them HOs, and tell them to find and write the things that the hostels have. -Demonstrate -Tell ss to do it individually and that they have one minute -Give ss HOs (to group A "Three Black Catz Hostel" and to the group B "Lighthouse Hostel") -Ask them to discuss their answers with their groups -Give WC feedback

Stage 4 (While-Reading) (10-15 minutes) • To provide students with more challenging detailed, deduction and inference

-Ask ss to read the text again and answer these questions individually -Give the HOs -Monitor them -Tell ss to discuss their answers in their groups -Give them the answers keys -No WC feedback since they will discuss their answers in pairs as A and B

Stage 5 (Post-Reading) (6-10 minutes) • To provide with an opportunity to respond to the text and expand on what they've learned

-Tell group A to line up on the left and group B to line up on the right. -Make them pairs -Ask group A to hand up, tell (and show) them to ask these questions to their partners -Do same thing for the group B -Demonstrate how to do it -Give them HOs -Ask them to check their answers with their partners -Give WC feedback

Stage 6 (If Time Allows - Freer speaking activity) (4-5 minutes) • To get students to practice what they have learned more freely

- Divide them into groups of four - Ask them to discuss if they would stay in one of the hostels they have read and why - WCFB - After that in their groups, ask students to make their own hostels and a list of things that they want in their hostel and have them name it. - WCFB
