KSA Spends $25.1 Billion Abroad
To provide fluency speaking practice in a conversation in the context of tourism
To provide detailed reading practice using a text about KSA spending abroad on travel in the context of tourism
Procedure (65-88 minutes)
I will ask Ss engaging questions about travel and tourism. Example: Who has ever traveled abroad? Where did you go? Where would you like to travel? T will introduce the topic of travel and tourism, and will lead-in to the article.
T will pre teach difficult vocabulary in the article, as well as introduce ten new words regarding countries and tourism.
Ss will read the title and read for gist, and discuss what they think the article will be about.
Ss will first read the article alone, then in PW. Lastly, Ss will take turns reading the article aloud and I will do pronunciation correction.
Ss will engage with the topic and article, as we use new vocabulary words. I will elicit new vocabulary words, as well as give them an engaging exercise to 1) select a city or region in KSA that needs to be developed for tourism, 2) come up with a business idea for this region, 3) develop marketing strategies for their business in order to practice speaking and using new vocabulary.
T will make slight correction during class discussion, as well as monitor for errors during pair work and make corrections WC.
