Stage 1. Lead-In (4-5 minutes) • To prepare students for Listening

T shows SS pptx with photos of a house and tells them a story of his friend Donald who lives in that house. He asks them if they would like to have such a house to live in, or such a friend, etc. Finally, he asks them if they know where this house is. (The WH) Then T gives SS list of Qs about the WH. In pairs, SS try to work out the answers. (No WCF at this stage!)

SS DO NOT use their dictionaries. CCQs: Are we using dictionaries? Guess-game The class is divided into two groups. We are playing a guess game. T shows SS pptx with fragments of photos, SS guess which room or part of a house that is.The team which shoots the correct word first scores a point. Each group can only give one answer. If there is no correct answer or SS think for too long (20 sec+), T scores a point.

Stage 6. Controlled Practice (10-15 minutes) • To practice TV and to introduce TG

SS are divided in pairs. On the board, there are words. Teacher folds his sheet and reads the sample text non-stop beeping where there are gaps. SS listen and THINK which word best fit each gap. T reads the text again sentence by sentence, SS say words. T writes them down. T gives SS their papers, makes sure they fold them. Student A reads the text two times, Student Z says which words suit the gaps best. Swap the roles. Students divide into two groups - A and Z - and check their answers.
