To provide clarification between the use of ''used to'' and present habits following by a controlled oral practice focused on using the language accurately.
To provide accuracy of speaking practice in a discussion in the context of habitual past.
Focus on the instructions and give Ss time to think about how a couple they know met. Put Ss in two circles (if they are even-numbered) or in pairs and get them to share their stories. Get some feedback and if you have a story about meeting a person in unusual circumstances, tell the class.
Focus on the instructions and on places. A-E in 1a. Write A-E on the board for easier referance. Play the audio once, pausing after each speaker for Ss to write the correct letter. Get them to compare with a partner and then play the audio again if necessary. Check the answers.
Tell Ss they will listen again and they must write down more details about how the people met. Play the audio and pause it after the first speaker. Get Ss to compare their notes with a partner and then elicit as many details as possible. Repeat for the other speakers. Find out with a show of hands which meeting Ss found the most romantic.
Focus on the task and the two questions. Do this as an open-class activity and elicit answers. When do we use ''used to''? How do you make negatives and questions? How would you change these sentences (using usually) if you wanted to talk about present habits or situations?
Hand the grammar part from the grammar book (1st and 2nd) Focus on the example sentences and play the audio for Ss to listen to the sentence rhythm. Then go through the rules with the class. Then focus on the exercises on grammar book (a and b) and get Ss to do them individually. Check answers by giving them the answer key.
Play the audio once the whole way through for Ss just to listen. Then play the audio again, pausing after each sentence for Ss to listen and drill.
Give Ss a few minutes to choose their three topics and plan what they are going to say. Put Ss in pairs, A and B. Tell the As to start talking about their first topic, giving as much information as they can and then Bs do the same afterwards.
