Listening, Metro 5 On Tour In Las Vegas
Beginner, Level A1 level


In this lesson Ss will listen to an interview and will practice their listening skills while doing gist and specific listening tasks. They will drill the negative form of BE 3rd personal plural. To activate their schemata they will be shown a picture of a well known Turkish band and will be elicited who, where, what questions. Then the authentic picture will be used to predict what they do, where they are and where they are from. Then students will do the listening followed by a pair work. They will discuss their ideas in pairs. Then, to check their listening comprehension skills they will listen for detail and will answer the questions in the exercise. For follow up task Ss will focus on productive skills with a group work activity(role play). They will write questions for their band and will interview in the group. They will also practice vocabulary related to the context.
