Put the students into pairs, put the three questions from Ex 1 onto the board and ask them to discuss. Elicit answers from a few students as a whole class
show the students the three images from p.10 and elicit names and check spelling and pronunciation. Elicit where Trinidad is, show a picture' as students to guess which instrument is played there. Show a picture of Natalie and tell them they will listen to an interview with her
Play the recording Give out the questions from Ex. 2 (side A) Ask the students to try and answer the questions ( in pairs in needed) Whole class feedback
Ask the students to look at the 5 T/F questions (side B). Ss listen and decide if they are true or false. ( T can play again if needed) WCFB ask the students to all stand-up, go through the questions one by one and ask the students who think the answer is false to sit down.
T Puts the students into 4 or 5 groups (depending on numbers) using the A-B-C-D (-E) method. While the students find their groups the T puts endings around the room. Nominate a writer for each group and give S a copy of the sentences without endings. Ss walk around the room in groups and try to match the endings to the correct sentence. First group to finish is the winning group. Show the answers on the board and all other students can write down the answers.
Students can discuss personal music preferences in their groups (or in pairs withing their group) and try to find someone with a similar music taste to them.
A chain game, the T starts I can play Violin and the students to take it in turns to say the name of an instrument ( or music genre, as there are a lot of students). S who cannot think of an instrument are out.
