Main Aims

  • To provide practice of listening for gist, specific information and detail in a listening based on license plates from different countries

Subsidiary Aims

  • To review and practice numbers from 0 to 10


Warmer/Lead-in (6-9 minutes) • To set lesson context and engage students

- re-introduces yourself and check students's names. * students tell their names - stick the numbers printed from " numbers" on the floor. ( you may do it before the class) - stand next to each number and elicit the numbers 0-10 or probably more based on the number of the students * students tell what they know about numbers - check the pronunciation of the numbers - do ex.1 in pairs * students do ex.1 in pairs - check the answers or ask some students to write it on the board - tell students to stand up and stand next to the numbers on the floor. when you clap once. they go one number up ( if they are standing next to 5 and you clap once, they have to stand next to 6). when you clap twice, they go two numbers up. you stand behind them and touch them on the shoulder. the person you touch should say his number, and after that the person before him and finally the one after him. (If you touch number 4, first he says 4, then number 3 says 3 and then number 5 says 5) * the students stand next to numbers and tell numbers

Pre-Reading/Listening (10-12 minutes) • To prepare students for the text and make it accessible

- set the context of the listening (use the pictures of the number plates from " license plate") - elicit from the students what they are, and when you might need to use them * students tell what they know about license plate - Check the countries pronunciation and clarify useful phrases " Is it from Ireland, what about this one" * students practice countries' pronunciation and learn useful phrases - do ex.1 * students do ex.1 in pairs - check their answer

While-Reading/Listening #1 (6-9 minutes) • To provide students with less challenging gist and specific information reading/listening tasks

- Tell them they are going to listen to 2 conversations. Write on the board “Where are they? / “How many people are there?” Ask the students to listen and answer these questions (Play it only once. Have them check in partners before you do feedback with the whole class.) * students listen to answer questions written on the board individually and then check it in pairs and with the class

While-Reading/Listening #2 (6-9 minutes) • To provide students with more challenging detailed, deduction and inference reading/listening tasks

- do ex.2 * students listen and then check in pairs and class

Post-Reading/Listening (5-8 minutes) • To provide with an opportunity to respond to the text and expand on what they've learned

- ask them to write their number plate or their father's or family members on a piece of paper( you can use the license plate on " license plate" as well . Tell them to hold the paper in their hand going around the class talking to other people asking : " Do you have a car? , What is your number plate? , once they talked about their number plate to a person, they exchange their papers and go around talking to others * students go around the class talking about number plates - if you have time, you can give them a couple of minutes to look at the plate numbers, and then to write as many as they can remember
