Procedure (45-55 minutes)
Teacher shows pictures from a power point slide while students make comments on it. Set the stage for the following vocabulary and unconsciously prepare them for the listening to come.
Introduce vocabulary to students via power point presentation. Elicit definitions by asking what the pictures and the words mean. Have the students discuss the words to find the meanings.
Play the recording and tell the students to tick the answers of things that Steve talks about. After playing the recording once, check to see if everyone understood. If not, play the recording on the part that they need to find the answer. Have them listen to it again, by working independently and answer questions. Play the recording again for them to get the answers. Present the answer key for them on the powerpoint
Play the second recording and have them listen to the conversation several times. Ask the students "How many times are we going to listen to this?" Have the students come up to the board as the teacher writes down two separate columns for the answers. Check with the students to see if those are the correct answers. Present the answer key on the power point.
Present the students with the questions by grouping them into groups and having them refer to the handout. Have the students answer the questions based on the number of students in the room. Have this lead into a discussion of their home town.
