Remind the picture from the previous lesson. Ask if they can remember what it showed. Have them discuss in pairs: Have you ever been for a job interview? What kind of questions did they ask? Did you get the job? Elicit answers.
Tell them that they will listen to five people talking about their job interviews. What questions were asked to them? Post the pictures related to the questions on the wall and ask them to predict the questions in pairs. Write their predictions on the board. Pre-teach the vocabulary items, reincarnated and sexist by using the pictures.
Ask them to listen and complete the questions. Then peer check before the feedback. For feeback, ask if their predictions are right or wrong and then, ask what the question are in the text.
Ask them to listen again and fill in the chart with more details such as their answers to the questions and the result of the interview. Have them work alone then peer check before feedback. For feedback, nominate each pair to provide one answer
Make them groups of four. Nominate two ss in groups A and two B. They are doing group interviews – two interviewers working together & two interviewees taking turns to answer the questions and they decide which of the two were better. For feedback, each pair decide on employing one of their group friends and they share their decision with the reasons.
If time allows, students may write 2-3 interview questions of their own and go around asking everyone in the class. Take feedback and finish the class.
