Main Aims

  • To provide fluency speaking practice in a conversation in the context of meeting someone new

Subsidiary Aims

  • To provide practice of language used for completing dialogues in the context of meeting someone new


Warmer/Lead-in (5-7 minutes) • To set lesson context and engage students

I am going to show a picture to students and ask some questions about that picture such as "what's happening here?", "who are these people?", "do they know each other?". Then I will introduce our topic and ask some more questions like "do you enjoy meeting new people?", "when did you last meet someone new?", "where did you meet them?", "what did you talk about?"

Exposure (8-10 minutes) • To provide a model of production expected in coming tasks through reading/listening

I will give them some topics and they will talk to their partners discussing what topic is okay for a conversation with someone new. After 3 mins' discussion they will come to the board and write their answers in the columns Okay/Not Okay. We will together discuss their answers.

Useful Language (5-7 minutes) • To highlight and clarify useful language for coming productive tasks

Students will identify with their pairs "Dos and Don'ts" during a conversation. Then we'll discuss their answers. I will highlight some words from the context writing them on the board.

Productive Task(s) (10-15 minutes) • To provide an opportunity to practice target productive skills

Students will match the conversations and responses completing the dialogues. Then they will listen and check their answers. Following this, students will prepare five or more questions and go, ask each other making a conversation. They will take notes about what they learned from the people they talked to.
