To provide students with practice in listening for gist, specific information and detail in the context of lifelong learning
Vocabulary and Speaking
Procedure (34-49 minutes)
Begin with a brief discussion about the students, asking when they started school. Then we can discuss school-related questions together. What subjects did they enjoy? Who were their favorite teachers? Where did they go to school?
Students read the introduction to the radio program and then have a discussion about Luis, Pierre, and Margaret. The teacher asks the students predictive questions about them. Where are these people from? What are their jobs? How old are they?
While listening to the recording, the students answer the questions and try to match the pictures with the characters
The teacher asks the students if they know any students like Pierre, Margaret, and Luis. Which one did they like the most and why? Which one are they the most like?
Students fill in the blanks in exercise 7 individually and then check with their peers. Then we go over the words together
Students listen to the teacher read the vocabulary words in 7a (except school) and draw a bullet point over the stress. Then they compare with their peers and the teacher gives them feedback
