In this lesson, students learn about numbers with the help of some car plate photos provided in their coursebook. The lesson starts with teaching the numbers (1-10). It is followed by a listening activity where they are required to answer some questions about two conversations. Finally, there will be a speaking activity where they are supposed to do a role play from the conversations they had been listening to earlier. If there is time, there will be a free practice to make their own conversations.


Main Aims

  • To provide practice of listening for specific detail.

Subsidiary Aims

  • To review and practice numbers from 0 to 10.


Lead-in (5-7 minutes) • To warm up and to see if they have problem with saying the numbers

Introduce yourself and check students' names. Elicit the numbers 0-10 (there is a good chance they'll know them, write the numbers on the board, and go over the pronunciation)/ask them to say the numbers one by one in class. they start with 0 and then the next students is expected to say 1 and it goes on like this up to 10. the 11th students will say 0. While they are doing this activity, make sure their pronunciations are correct especially for the word "three". You might need to ask them to repeat it a few times to make sure they have learnt it.

Spelling (12-15 minutes) • to learn the spelling of numbers 0-10

First, ask them how they spell one number from 0-10. Then write one scrambled word example on the board. Next, you will hand them the spelling cards. They will unscramble the words on their own and then will check it in pairs. Check the answers with the whole class. Then, say a number and call a student's name and ask him/her to say the number that comes before and after. Then ask the students to continue the same thing by saying a number and calling each other names.

Listening (15-18 minutes) • listening for detailed information

Show the students the photo of a car plate and ask them what it is. When you make sure they know what a car plate is, then give them car plate numbers around the world copies and ask them if they can guess what country they are from. Stick some useful phrases on the board so they won't have any difficulty making sentences and questions. While they are checking this in pairs, stick the name of countries where the plates come from on the board. Now, ask them to match the names on the board with the copies. Check the answers in class. While they are doing this you can play a music to jazz it up a little bit and fasten the pace of the activity. Now that they are ready, tell them they are going to listen to two conversations. write some questions on the board for them to answer after they have listened to the conversations. Write "Where are they?" / "How many people are there" / "what kind of car do they have?" / "what are their names?" . You can play it two times so they can answer all the questions without being confused. Have them check their answers after listening. Check the answers in class. Write the question answers on the board.

Activation (10-12 minutes) • to make students produce the language they have learned freely

Ask the students if they have a car. Ask them if they know their car plates. Write on the board "The number plate is...." / "I don't have a car." Ask them to talk in pairs and use these sentences. If there is time, give them the role play cards from the listening section and ask to role play it. Ask them to look up and say their lines when talking. (memorizing would be difficult) And then ask for the volunteers to role play it in the class.
