Main Aims

  • To practice speaking in the context of things you can't live without.

Subsidiary Aims

  • To practice listening for a specific information in the context of things you can't live without.

Procedure

Lead in (3-5 minutes) • To generate interest to the topic and set the context.

I will show the Ss a picture that has important things that we couldn't live without. I will ask them to describe the picture. For example, what do you see in the picture? which things you couldn't live without? Then, I will elicit answers. Next, I will tell the students that they are going to listen to 6 students talking about their valuable things, but before we listen we have to work on some difficult vocabulary.

Pre-teach vocabulary (8-10 minutes) • To prevent Ls blocking on unknown vocabulary in the questions or answers.

Pre-teach the new vocabulary: ornament /ˈɔː.nə.mənt/ sentimental value /ˌsen.tɪˈmen.təlˈvæl.juː/ “jewellery” /ˈdʒuːəlri/ “helmet” /ˈhel.mət/ "acoustic guitar” /əˈkuː.stɪkɡɪˈtɑːr/ I will teach the new vocabulary in a test through mix and match activity. The new vocabulary and their definitions are written on 2 sets of flash cards. I will demonstrate the activity first to the class that they have to match the word with its definition. I will do one with them as an example. Then, divide the class into 2 groups and give each one a set of flash cards to match the word with the definition. I will give them 5 minutes to do. After that Ss will check in pairs followed by my feedback and answer key.

Listening for a specific information (10-11 minutes) • To give the Ls a reason to listen for individual items of information.

The Ss will listen to 6 people talking about the their valuable things that they would hate to live without. Ex no1 T8.6 pg86.They will have a table to fill it out with the name of the object, its description, and why it is important. I will do a demonstration for no 1 and Ss have to continue. Then, the Ss with check their answers in pairs followed by the answer key. Instructions: Please listen to 6 people talking about the things they would hate to live without. As you listen fill out the information in the table.

Speaking activity (17-19 minutes) • To practice speaking in the context of things you can't live with.

I will provide the Ss with a list of things that we'd hate to live without. I will ask them to choose 3 items from the list to speak about. Then, I will provide them with sheets of questions to help them in describing these items. For example: what is the object? where/when did you get it? why is it important for you?...etc. Then, I will do a demonstration and provide them with useful language For example: I couldn't live without my... I'd hate to be without my.. I bought it from....in.... It's really important to me because... it's got great sentimental value. After that, The Ss will have a preparation time for 3 minutes. Then, Ss will be asked to talk in pairs about their valuable things. Next, I will ask the Ss to stand up and to change partners and try to find someone that is the same as him/her. If I got enough time, I will give them content feedback.
