T shows ss names of some dishes that they can order at a restaurant and elicits answers for the question; 'Where can you find this on a menu?' 'Is it an appetiser, a main course, or a dessert? T gives ss names of the dishes and asks them to categorise them to: starters, main course and desert. SS work in two small groups. SS create their own menus on board by sticking the paper slips.
T asks ss CCQs to check the meaning of 'starter/appetiser, main course, and dessert. T models and drills the correct pronunciation of the words and displays stress on the board.
SS listen to the dialogue on p.84 and fill in the gaps. SS pair check their answers before they listen for the second time. SS listen for the second time and T shows the answer key on the projector.
T gives each student a role play card and asks them to play the role of a customer in a restaurant and plays the role of the waiter. SS ask the T the questions written in the role play card and she answers. T then gives her card to another student and asks the student to play her role as the waiter. T uses the open pair as a demo. SS are asked to play the same roles in pairs. T monitors and gives feedback if necessary.
