Warmer/Lead-in (3-5 minutes) • To set lesson context and engage students

T starts the discussion by asking 'Do you enjoy inviting your friends to your house for a meal or going to their places?' 'How often do you go for a meal to your friends' houses or invite them for a meal?' Ss work in pairs and discuss the questions in ex. 1 about the last time they had a meal at someone else's home. T takes feedback by asking SS what they learned about their partners.

Pre-Listening (3-5 minutes) • To prepare students for the text and make it accessible

T explains that students need to know some words for the listening they will do. T checks understanding of the words: SS recall or learn the selected words and answer concept questions. lay the table Before you eat a meal, what preparations do you make? what kind of things do you take to the table? (glasses,plates etc.) Do you put them in an untidy way or in an order? do the dishes What do you do after you finish your meal? Do you leave everything on the table? sunshade How do you protect yourself from the sunlight? ( hats, sunglasses etc.) If you are sitting in the garden outside around a table with other people, how can you protect yourself? Is a sunshade big enough to protect two or three people? Do we need a sunshade inside our house? Can we use a sunshade on the beach?

While-Listening #1 (5-7 minutes) • To provide students with less challenging gist listening task

T shows Ss four pictures. Ss work in pairs and discuss what is happening in each one and what people in these pictures are saying to each other. Ss listen and match the dialogues 1-4 to the pictures A-D. Ss check their answers in pairs. T writes 1-2-3-4 on the board and one student from each pair comes to the board write the answer. T asks if everbody agrees on these answers or not.

While-Listening #2 (8-10 minutes) • To provide students with more challenging detailed listening task

T ask Ss read the sentences in ex. 2 and decide if these sentences are true or false. Ss listen to the recording for the second time. Ss work in pairs and check if they have the same answers. T puts the answer key on the board. One student from each pair comes to the board and dictates the answer to his/ her partner. Then they swap roles.

Post-Listening (10-15 minutes) • To provide with an opportunity for free speaking

T gives each student a different question on modern manners. Ss work in pairs and ask questions to each other. Ss change partners until they finish answering all the questions.
