TP # 4

In this lesson the ss will have a receptive skills lesson (Listening), they will be listening to a conversation between 3 people (a waitress and 2 customers) in a cafe and they are ordering drinks and talking about activities that they do. I shall perform pre, while and post listening activities to get them listening to the conversation and I will present the TL that they can use when requesting something in a cafe or a restaurant. The main aim is Receptive (listening) and the sub aim I chose it to be Productive (speaking)

Main Aims

  • To provide gist, specific information and detailed listening practice using a text about In the cafe conversation in the context of a conversation between two friends about drinks and activities

Subsidiary Aims

  • To provide fluency speaking practice In the cafe in the context of ordering and discussing activities in a 'freer-post-listening task' in the context of "ordering in a cafe", which means they will have the chance to ask and answer questions in pairs and talk about their favorite cafe and what they order there and their free time activity


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

I will elicit from them: what do you drink in the morning? and then where do you drink it? at home or outside your home? where ? until they say : The cafe.. then I will proceed to the pre listening

Pre-Reading/Listening (5-10 minutes) • To prepare students for the text and make it accessible

I will show them a photo of the cafe and then will ask them questions like : What is this? a cafe Why do people go there? to meet eachother What do people do there? buy drinks and talk What do you buy from a cafe? drinks and food What do you see in the photo? and they say what is there in the photo Who works in a cafe? and who sits in a cafe? waiter and waitress and customers Do you go to a cafe? What do you order? Who do you go with? After eliciting the answers from the ss, I move to the next stage of pre-listening

While-Listening #1 (6-8 minutes) • To provide students with less challenging gist and specific information listening tasks

I will give the students an exercise about choosing the items they hear in the listening activity, this will help them to concentrate only on the specific info asked about in the question and they will do it individually and then pair check and then I will write the answers on the board after taking it from the ss

While-Listening #2 (10-15 minutes) • To provide students with more challenging detailed, deduction and inference listening tasks

I will give them more detailed exercises to listen to other details in the L , they will do them individually and then pair check and then task FB on the board at the end

Post-Reading/Listening (8-10 minutes) • To provide with an opportunity to respond to the text and expand on what they've learned

First I will give the ss the TL for ordering drinks in a cafe using: I'll have ..... and I'd like .... The ss will perform a role play in groups of threes, whereas one of the three is a waiter/waitress and the other 2 are customers and they proceed with their productive skills presented in S.
