Love Story
Beginner - A1 level


The main aim of this session is listening. Students listen to a love song and they should answer two questions to get the whole idea about the song, and then they listen again to answer some detailed questions. As the post stage, they should write their love story and tell the story to their partners.

Main Aims

  • To provide gist, detailed and inference listening practice using a text about Song in the context of Love Story

Subsidiary Aims

  • To provide fluency speaking practice in a A Story in the context of Love Story


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

After greeting, I name some love movies to grab the student's attention about these stories. Then I ask them "do they like the love stories?"

Pre-Reading/Listening (10-15 minutes) • To prepare students for the text and make it accessible

I play a short video about a sad love story and ask the students to talk with their partner about it. Then I ask some ideas of WC. Then, I give them some cutout with pictures to match the vocabulary.

While-Reading/Listening #1 (11-13 minutes) • To provide students with less challenging gist and specific information reading/listening tasks

First, with a clear ICQ, I explain that the students should listen to a song, and while listening, they should answer two WH questions about the whole idea of the song. Then I give them time to share their idea with their partner and check their answers. As the controlled practice, I give the students the lyric of the song with some missed words. After ICQ, I play the song again to write the missed words. Then I ask them to check their answers with their partners, and then, I give WC feedback.

Post-Reading/Listening (12-15 minutes) • To provide with an opportunity to respond to the text and expand on what they've learned

I ask the students to write a love story and then talk with their partners about it. While they are speaking, I try to write some errors down to give the students late error correction.
