This lesson sets the context of keeping in touch for all three lessons. Students learn pronouncing fractions and their equivalent percentages. This is followed by reading stage in which students read and discuss on a survey.


Main Aims

  • To give students practice in the integrated skills of reading for detail and speaking - discussing ideas- through the context of ways of keeping in touch

Subsidiary Aims

  • To review pronunciation of fractions.
  • To give practice in listening for specific information


Warmer/Lead-in (8-10 minutes) • To get to know students' names draw their attention to fractions

1- Check students' names 2- Stick printouts that show fractions and their pronunciation on the board. 3- Define fractions with the images on the Board. 3- Ask Ss how we say them.Let Ss try to say them first but don't give any feedback. 4- Give a printout of pronunciations to every pair. They discuss and match the printouts on the board. 5- Get Ss to check the answers on the board. Correct if there is a mistake. 6- Drill

Clarification (5-8 minutes) • To clarify the meaning and pronunciation of fractions

1- Show percent printouts at the center and ask Ss to define them. 2- Check their answer and give feedback. 3- Give each pair a printout and they can match them with fractions on the board. 4- Check answer. 5- Drill percentages.

Pre-Reading (8-10 minutes) • To provide necessary vocabulary items for reading stage

1- Explain the expression "in touch". Point out that it refers to any kind of communication with someone, it does not have to involve a face-to-face meeting. You can say "We keep in touch by phone/by letter/by email, etc. 2- Ask Ss to write down five names and how they last communicated with these people. Work in Pairs. 3- Ask pairs how they communicated with their friends, write communication methods on the board so the Ss can find out different ways of communication. I can also add some alternatives if necessary.
