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

Tell ss about what I wanted to be as a young kid and Ask ss what is their dream job? and if they can now choose a job, what will it be? Elicit answers from ss and then start introducing them to the TL.

Elicit language (8-10 minutes) • To elicit samples of the TL onto the white board

start eliciting different jobs from ss and ask them some questions about the jobs they might not know, ask ss what do people use in these jobs and where do they work.

Clarification (8-10 minutes) • To clarify the meaning, form and pronunciation of the target language

clarify meaning through a simple activity on the board. Ask ss to match pictures with the correct profession, tools and working place. hand out each ss three straps of paper with a profession, tool and a place and the have to put them under the right picture on the board.

Focus on phonology • To provide clarification of the pronunciation of the TL

After clarifying meaning. I will ask ss to put the matched picture and words in a complete sentence then write it on board then start highlighting stress on the difficult vocab and drill with the ss.

Controlled Practice (8-10 minutes) • To concept check and prepare students for more meaningful practice

Divide ss into pairs. Give each ss a role play card with 4 sentences in which two of them are missing and they will have to elicit from each other the missing sentences in the card.

Free Practice (8-10 minutes) • To provide students with free practice of the target language

Divide ss into pairs or three small groups depending on the number of ss, give each ss a small card which they have to write their name on it. Give each group a monopoly board but with pictures of different professions and a coin to flip, if it's head the ss moves a single step if its tails the ss moves two steps. On each picture they have to answer four questions What do they do? What do they use? Where do they work? What do they wear?
