The Ss will talk about their own experience with moving to another place. T: In pairs answer these questions. [Ask a couple of people] T: What were we talking in the previous lesson with Haya? What were the reasons why the people left their countries?
Ss will be given 2 model sentences from the reading of the previous lesson. They will analyse them with regards to meaning and form.
Ss will focus on MPF of the TL. T willl elicit meaning and form and drill pronunciation. M+F: Elicit answers to M+F and give feedback. P: Mark on WB stress + backchaining (WC, half, ladies etc.)
Ss will practice the TL by filling the gaps with to or leaving them blank. T: Look at ex. 2. Complete the sentences with to or nothing. For example, the first sentence "We came..." First work alone. T: Check in pairs.
Ss will work in groups. They will be given cards with items useful when travelling. First, they will write what the purpose of the object is, then they will say it to the group and the others will guess what the object is. T: Look at your card, it´s secret, don´t show it anyone. Then think why you use it (at least one reason). [elicit example with the word computer -> T: why do we use it? We use it to send emails. What else? To read the news... ] Tell your group "you use it to send emails and to read the news." the group has to guess what the object is. [DEMO with the word TV "You use it to watch series, films...."] ICQ1: Will you show the card? [no] ICQ2: Will you say the word? [no] ICQ3: Will you say why you use that thing? [yes] [Groups of 3] Error correction
