To provide clarification of present form of to be in the context of introducing themselves.
To provide accuracy and fluency speaking practice in a conversation taking place when two people meet and introduce themselves in the context of meeting new people
Procedure (38-50 minutes)
T shows a picture of two people talking to each other next to an info desk and elicits their thoughts to set the context. * What do you think they are talking about? * What do they ask each other? * Is it a social or formal introduction? * What information do you think they need to know?
T plays the audio file to see if their predictions were correct. When they hear the conversation, * T plays the audio file 2 to highlight the TL and gives a handout. * Ss will fill the gaps, check in pairs.
Ss fill the gaps and T plays the audio once more for the Ss to check their answers individually. * T clarifies the meaning: We use am/is/are to describe things and to talk about things that do not change (currently). * T plays the audio file 2 once more to check individually and clarify the TL, uses finger technique to show contracted form of the TL. * T clarifies the pronunciation by drilling and then the form. (Positive, negative and question forms)
Students will listen to the information about Bill and fill the gaps with the verb "be" and possessive adjectives.
Ss will answer the Qs about Sabine and check in pairs. One st will ask each information at a time and the other one will answer. When the pair check is done, T runs a WCFB to fill the information on the WB.
T give the handout "find someone who" and Ss walk around to find the matching student.
