This material rounds off the lesson. It continues with the topic of journeys and provides the Ss with listening and speaking skills practice and the opportunity to use the grammar from the previous lesson.The context stays the same : Journeys.The students will first be taught new vocabulary and are consequentially asked to make up stories based on pictures they are given. Students then listen to the recording and match the pictures to the text. An exercise will require them to match sentences to the stories they listened to. Later, they will be given a text related to the listening with mistakes to correct. This all will be followed by a speaking activity during which students interview each other.
