Procedure (48-58 minutes)
- Project the photos of Auckland, Keswick and Eyeries. - The Ss predict in what country this places are. - Instructions: 'In what country do you think this places are? I think this one (pointing at Auckland) is in Japan, because there high buildings and it's nearby the sea. Decide in groups. 2 minutes.' - FB: Ask for a volunteer in each group to share their ideas. Move behind the Ss talking so that the attention of the rest is focused on him. - Monitor. Write down relevant errors.
- Stick on the walls the photos of the places in exercise 1. Place the words facing up on a table in the middle of the semicircle. - Demonstrate without oral instructions. Take a word and read it. Stick it next to the correspondant photo. Ask one of the Ss to do the same. 'Now, everyone'. - Clarify relevant vocabulary for the listening activity: Bed and Breakfast CCQs: -Is it similar to a hotel? Yes -Is it bigger or smaller? Smaller - What meals are included? Breakfast Flat (US: apartment) CCQs: - Is it a home? Yes - If you live in a flat, is there other people living above you? Probably yes. - And next to you? Probably yes. A square in a city. Draw the shape on the board. CCQs: -What can we find around? Buildings, houses, shops. I assume the meaning of the rest of the words will be clear with the photos. - Drill a couple of words Pre-listening activity: - Instructions: 'In groups, decide which 4 things are important to you where you live.
