Main Aims

  • To practice reading for gist and specific information in the context of where people are from

Subsidiary Aims

  • Sub-aim: introduce and practice adjectives fantastic/awful/ beautiful


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

Lead-in – re-introduce myself. Think of a way to get the Ss interested in the lesson with a quick warmer (a game maybe?)

Pre-Reading/Listening (10-12 minutes) • To prepare students for the text and make it accessible

Pre-reading: Put photo of myself on the whiteboard. Use this to introduce the reading. (Try to get them interested in where I am and the photo of the couple from the reading)

While-Reading # (10-12 minutes) • To provide students with less challenging gist and specific information reading/listening tasks

Reading 2 - Specific information: Write on the board (or create a HO): What is her job? What is his job? Where is she from? Where is he from? Where do they live? [you can add a couple more questions if you want] Ss read ex. 1 and answer the questions. Peer-check answers and provide feedback

While-Reading#2 (14-16 minutes) • To provide students with more challenging detailed, deduction and inference reading/listening tasks

Controlled Practice: Have learners practice the conversations. Provide feedback and error correction as whole class.
