I like and I'd like
Functional Language at a restaurant
Improving speaking skills
Procedure (41-53 minutes)
I am going to show the students a picture of a restaurant and ask them what it is and then I will ask my CCQs like : Is it a restaurant or a house? Are they eating now or waiting? Afterwards, I am going to ask them if they like going to restaurants.
I am going to show the students the picture of listening before they listen to the audio and I am going to tell them that these are Duncan and Nick I will set a gist by asking where they are and what they are doing and I will ask them to discuss. Afterwards, I will use my CCQs like : Where are they? Are they at home or in a restaurant? Did they eat something or Are they going to eat? Then I will ask who is she? Is she Duncan's friend? I will tell the students that they are going to listen an audio and read the tapescript about these two guys in a restaurant and I will ask them to underline the questions in the tapescript and I will ask my CCQs to make sure that they understand. My CCQs are, Are we just going to listen or listen and read? Are we going to underline negative sentences?
I will ask the students to do the exercise 4 according to the tapescript but firstly they won't look at the tapescript. They will listen and do the exercise. After they finish the exercise, I will tell them to look at the tapescript and check their answers with their partner.
I will write the sentences on the board which the students underlined in the activity. e.g : Are you ready to order? Would you like sparkling? I'd like the spaghetti. I will explain the meaning by modeling as if I am a waitress or customer and at some point I can explain by words but I will ask CCQs like;Am I a customer or a waitress? so in this case Am I taking order or giving order? I will drill the students and backchain for pronunciation part and I will write the form from the sentences that I will write.
I will give the students instruction about the role play. There are going to be ones and twos. I will tell them that one of you is going to be waiter/waitress and one of you is going to be a customer and you are going to stand in front of each other and you will role play by using the sentences that we have learnt. ICQs; Are we going to work in pairs or alone? After giving instructions and ICQs I will model it for the students so that I can make sure that they understand. If we have more time, they will play a game. These are some sentences about restaurant collocations and they are going to be divided into 2 groups and put the sentences in an order.
