Procedure (33-45 minutes)
T reminds ss of how salespeople persuade customers to spend money by asking questions. T elicits some of the examples of how people negotiate.
a) T gives the HOs to the ss and writes two examples on the board. If I buy lots now, I won't have to come back later. If the advertisement makes us feel good, then we start to associate good feelings with the product. T elicits the structure and asks CCQs to clear the concept. Are we talking about the present or the future? Is coming back later a real possibility ? Does it happen always? Is it always true? T divides the Ss into pairs and asks them to do Ex. 6a. T monitors and once they have done the exercise, asks them to check their answers from the board. b) T does the first gap fill of Ex. 6b with the ss and asks them to read the examples from 6a and fill in the gaps.
a) T splits the ss into pairs and gives them the paper cards. T gives demonstration by doing the first sentence with the students. T uses ICQs. SS finish the exercise and check their answers from the answer key stuck on the wall. b) T divides the ss into two groups and gives the HO. T asks the groups to choose a spokesperson who would tell their answers. T uses ICQs. Ss do the exercise and discuss how the meaning changes by using different words in the same sentence. c) T gives the HO. It is an IND task. T does the first one with the SS. Ss finish the exercise and check their answers from the screen.
T puts the paper cards on a table and demonstrates by making a sentence. T asks Ss to ask her about what she says in the sentence. T asks ss to choose two cards and use those to generate more speaking. T monitors and gives feedback at the end.
