Procedure (43-57 minutes)
In this stage the map of Turkey will be displayed on the board by OHP. Then students are asked to talk about other cities of Turkey. They start by....It's in the north/south/west...... near the mountains/sea........ ............on the River
In this part, students will listen to a conversation between two people who compare Paris and London. This provides the input and the context for the grammar of this lesson which focuses on comparing two cities or objects using comparatives. This texts includes such examples: bigger than,smaller, more romantic, better.
In this stage, students students will fill a grammar spot which tries to elicit the grammar rules from learners. Learners will say why some adjectives get -er at the end and why get more at the beginning.
In this stage students have the opportunity to practice the comparative form of adjectives.First, they will have two minutes to practice the comparative forms of some adjectives such as polite,bad and warm from a box then they will practice some other adjectives from a chart that I have prepared from the end of the book page 140.
At this stage which is an optional stage, I will clarify or explain any structural or pronunciation problem I have observed. It can be a error correction phase. I will elaborate on difficulties learners may face.
In this part there will be two listening practices.In the first one, Rob, an English man, will talk about the differences between London and Paris. Students will listen and fill in the gaps and there is an example for them at the beginning. The next listening focuses on more complicated comparatives with the use of much and more.Before this part, I will show and explain the grammar related to this part. I have prepared it from the grammar practice at the end of the book page 140.
The final freer practices will be speaking and writing practices, both of which are productive skills.In the speaking task, there are some pictures and students will make sentences by saying I think......... they have some ideas too. For example, the weather, the building and so on. In the writing task, they are completely free. They should write sentences about different cities and compare them.
