Procedure (22-45 minutes)
I will start the lesson with a story about my last marriage with the usage of past simple, then I will tell them that it failed because my wife spent all the money, to make it connected to the listening exerciser.
First, I will show Ss an image about a couple on the WB and I ask Ss to discuss in pairs what the couple are talking about and I will ask them to write their ideas about the couple on a paper, then I will paly the audio about the couple to let the Ss understand the context, then I will ask them to check there ideas in pairs after that WCF and CCQs.
I will hand out the conversation of the couple with gaps and ask the Ss to fill the gaps in pairs with past simple and present perfect, then I will ask ICQs, then I will play the audio again to let Ss check their answers. After that, I will get WCF.
To clarify the meaning, I will hand out the Ss some sentences written on paper and ask them to work in pairs to asnwer the CCQs in the paper, then I will ask a student to write a sentence from the text on the WB, then I will ask some CCQs to clarify the form. Finally, I wil write a sentence on the WB with Phonemic symbols to clarify the pronunciation.
I will hand out the Ss an exercise (find some who..........) and I will ask them to work in groups. Then, ICQs. Finally Ss get the answers from each others and start to say it out loud. In addition, I will ask the Ss to work in pairs and write about the last summer vacation of their partner.
