Ss will be asked to listen to the audio file and draw the route to Andy's cottage. Ss check in pairs and the T does o/c feedback. In the next step, Ss unfold their handouts to complete the second part of the activity, where they will fill the gaps with the missing prepositions. Ss check in pairs and the T does o/c feedback.
For each preposition,The T shows students a picture of the movement in question and Ss have to supply the correct preposition. Drill every preposition and make sure to drill "into" in a sentence. He's walking into the shop.
Ss listen to the second audio file and fill in the gaps. Ss check with their partners. T does o/c feedback. Ss fold the sheet to hide the text. They will use the pictures to tell Joel's story.
In pairs, Ss will be given a map on which they will first write the names of the missing places. Next, they will work in pairs. One S gives directions, and the other follows them and has to find out what his destination is. Ss will take turns in doing this. T will demonstrate by giving an example first. T gives directions and Ss follow them. They will then have to say where they are.
