Abc Starightforward CD1, Track 47

Main Aims

  • To provide the students with the parts of a house.

Subsidiary Aims

  • To provide an opportunity for speaking about parts of a house.


Lead in (5-7 minutes) • To generate interest in the context of the listening.

I will write the parts of a house in the middle of the board and display a big picture of a house. I will play with them a miming game. The class will be divided into three groups. A student from each group will come in front of the others and mimes an action. The other students will decide where he/she is now? I will start by a model for them to follow.

Listening Task (5-7 minutes) • To practice listening for detail

The students listen to the beginning of a documentary about the house at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. Then, they work in pairs to put the questions in exercise 1 in the right order. The students listen to the track for a second time to check their answers. I will write the right order on the board for them to check their answers. As for exercise 3, I will read the numbers and elicit that they are going to complete the sentences with the numbers. The students listen again to the recording to check their answers. The students work in pairs to answer the question in exercise 4. They may tell the class about their opinions.

Clarifying Target langage (6-7 minutes) • To clarify MFP so learners know how to use the new lexis.

The students listen to track 1.48 and repeat them. I will use some flash cards for the target words with pictures of the words. I will present the picture first and ask the students about the word. Then, I display the words on the board and discuss them with the students. I start with the meaning of the words. Next, I will show them how to write them correctly. Finally, I will show them the right way to pronounce them. The students listen another time to check their answers.

Language Practice (5-8 minutes) • To provide controlled oral practice focused on using the language accurately.

I elicit what exercise 3 is about. The students work in pairs to ask and answer questions using the target vocabulary. They follow the example given to them. This activity is time limited. I go through the class to check their performance or guide the students who need extra help.
