Description

In this lesson, Ss practice their reading skills and listening: both for a gist and specific information> They also learn new vocabulary: fixed expressions in English. The lesson starts with showing Ss some posters of movies about motorbike trips and ask Ss about the theme of these movies. This is followed by asking Ss questions related to the reading text to prepare them for the text. Then, Ss read the text for gist. After that, Ss read the text again to search for details. Ss listen to a track to know the ending. Then Ss learn fixed expressions through an activity where they use words in box to complete some fixed expressions. Finally, there is a freer activity where Ss practice speaking for fluency by discussing the sentences in exercise 2 are true or not for them.
