Main Aims

  • To provide gist and specific information in the context of Everday English

Subsidiary Aims

  • To provide fluency speaking practice in a conversation in the context of interesting situations


Warmer/Lead-in (5-7 minutes) • To set lesson context

Printing some common mistakes that most of people make in their everyday life. Divide the students in 3 or 4 groups and asking them to arrange these problems based on which are considered more important.Then take feedback as a class. Another idea is just to ask them questions about the most embarrassing mistakes they ever made. Just to engage them and present the content.

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

In this stage students answer question 1-a,b in pairs, which will probably take from 10-12 minutes, feedback included.

While-Listening #1 (10-12 minutes) • To provide students with less challenging gist and specific information listening tasks

In this first listening audio, the first thing I am going to do is eliciting some information about the picture they see. Where do you think they are? Do they seem happy? and then I will explain what is going on on this audio and try to explain the whole scene happening. That Mark and Tom are in the office and Mark is telling a story about a mistake he made which they should tell me after we finish the audio. Then I will ask them to read question 2-a, and give them 30 seconds to do so. After this, they will answer b,c.

While-Listening #2 (14-16 minutes) • To provide students with more specific listening tasks

In this stage, students will try to guess solutions for Mark's problem. and then they will listen to the next audio and find out what did Mark do next. Then I will ask them to read question 3-c and then i will play the audio again. This is followed by another audio 1.15 question 4-a and the same procedure goes, to read first and then listen. After this they answer 4-b.

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

Here, after listening to the story, they now should focus on how some words are stressed and the places which are paused in the sentence. First, I will ask them to read the green note-box ad then read the sentences. Followed by listening to the audio 1.52 to answer questions a,b. As for the speaking activity, it depends on the time specified for 3c. if the time passes 6 pm. Then There will be no space for this activity
