Procedure (40-60 minutes)
T holds up pictures of job titles and introduces the word pronunciation. Ss repeat the words. T disperses HOs to students, shows the photos on the walls, and asks Ss to walk around and write down the job titles underneath the appropriate photos on the HO. T checks answers with the WC.
T hands out the exercise, and demonstrates the first two lines of #1. Ss fill out the HO and after, T gives a HO with the answers. After they check their answers, they practice reading the conversation in pairs. T chooses students to model two conversations in front of the WC.
T regroups Ss into new pairs, and then shows example on the board. T hands out sets of questions cut up into individual words. Ss order the words properly. T checks the answers with the WC: T calls on Ss to read examples of proper questions.
T passes out the roleplaying cards (duplicates to a male/a female) and shows the WC the example card to explain the cards. Ss fill out their cards. T demonstrates the activity by asking Ss about themselves. Ss get up and mingle and ask each other about themselves. Ss sit down, and T asks the WC about specific students' names, nationalities, and job titles.
