I follow the ECDW for the new vocabulary that they may find in the listening text .

gist (10-12 minutes) • To give Ls a reason to listen

I ask them to listen for the aim of marking things in the box that Michael and Irina mentioned. I make sure they read the phrases in the box before Listening.

Specific information task (2-3 minutes) • To give Ls a reason to listen for individual items of information.

I ask them to listen to the track to answer exercise 2B.

SS are asked to read the sentences and to choose the correct alternative then they listen again and check their answers.

I ask ss ti think about the changes that happened in their countries and how much it was before than these days focusing on their ability to use present and past tenses.
