Lead- in (7-10 minutes) • To enable students to relax and start feeling comfortable . To provide students with speaking practice.

First of all I will ask the sts how their weekend was. I will start with the photos of cheap and luxury seaside hotels and to start a discussion I will write two questions on the board. The questions are; - What are the reasons that people stay in hotels? - What differences are there between very cheap hotels and luxury hotels? Then I will tell the sts that they are going to stay in a seaside hotel in a nearby country like in the photos. I will ask them to work in groups of three and discuss and agree on the five most important things that the hotel must have.

Pre- teaching of Vocabulary (10-15 minutes) • To enable students to learn vocabulary which is essential for the speaking practice.

First of all, I will introduce the concept which is staying in a hotel. Then I will stick the flashcards which have categories and the words about hotel on the board. I will ask them to put the words under the correct category in pairs. Then I will check understanding of some of the words; When people stay in a hotel, they prefer the rooms with air conditioning. - Do we need air conditioning in summer? - use realia (show the air conditioning in the classroom) In most of our apartments, we have central heating system. - Do we need it when the weather is cold ? - Do we need it only in winter? The hotel is in an amazing countryside near the sea. - Is the hotel in the city center? - Are there any huge buildings in countryside? - Do millions of people live in countryside? Is it crowded? In the morning I came up to the 5th floor in the lift. - Is it electronic? - Is taking a lift less tiring? - Do you waste your energy in a lift? In the hotels they also have twin rooms and couples prefer to stay in these rooms. - Is there only one bed in twin rooms? - Can two people stay in a twin room? I will help them with the pronunciation of the trickier words. I will focus on word stress, re-eliciting the words and drilling. These words are; - 'air con|di¦tion|ing /ɛː kənˈdɪʃ(ə)nɪŋ/ - cen|tral 'heat|ing /sɛntr(ə)l ˈhiːtɪŋ/ - 'coun¦try|side /ˈkʌntrɪsʌɪd/
