Exposure and physical descriptions
To provide exposure and practice of lexis related to physical descriptions.
To provide practice of listening for gist and specific detail.
Procedure (41-45 minutes)
Elicit the sentence frames
I ask the students to divide the words into words they know and don't know. I show the pictures of the words they don't know. I also check the pronunciation difficulties.
I set the context of the listening. Students do the exercise and then I check the answers. Finally, for feedback, I provide the transcript to check.
I put them in different small groups and make this competitive (they get points for a correct answer).
