Procedure (38-45 minutes)
After greeting - Students will see 2 pictures of a rainy and a sunny day. Teacher elicits; "What can we do on a sunny day? what about a rainy day?" for brainstorming. -Students will be introduced to the topic of listening and the people in the listening. In pairs, they will do a matching activity related to the listening they are going to listen to. Put them on the walls and check each other's answers.
They will listen for gist listening and answer "What activities are these people talking about?" They pair check and tell the class. They listen again and fill the gaps of the listening. They pair check and read the conversations in open pairs for feedback.
Students will answer "What are they talking about?" so that the teacher can elicit making suggestions/ giving ideas.
Meaning will be elicited from the students. They will work on pronunciation through backchaining drilling. The form will be elicited and written on the board.
Students will be reminded of the people in the conversations again and their suggestions. They will do a matching exercise which follows the listening task. Check it in new pairs. Listen and check. Stand in 2 lines and practice the listening(If we have enough time).
Students will sit in groups of 3-4 They will be given some cards which they need to talk and make suggestions to find out what they are going to this Sunday afternoon. The teacher should model the activity otherwise there will be too much TTT. The teacher should monitor and help if need be. Feedback and delayed error correction.
