At the shops
To provide practice of language used for buying things in the context of shopping
To provide clarification of newsagent's vocabulary in the context of shopping
Procedure (27-44 minutes)
T starts the lesson with some questions to make a connection with the previous lesson. T asks questions like "Where can I buy a ..... ? and tries to elicit the names of shops to be able to move on to the next stage
T sticks a blank sheet of paper on the wall and uses teacher's desk as counter of a shop. She pretends to be a shop assistant and tries to elicit this word from students. Then T show sts things they can find at a newsagent's. A drilling of words follows. T asks if they can guess what kind of shop it is and writes the name of the shop on the blank paper behind. T also sticks a picture of a newsagent's under its name.
T gives hand-outs which include a matching activity to students to practice new vocabulary. Sts first work individually to match the pictures with the words and then work in pairs to check their answers.
T points to the picture of the newsagent on the wall and sts say which of the newly practiced words they can see in the picture. Then T gives sts handouts of the listening task. Sts listen to the listening and put a check mark next to the items mentioned in the listening. After working individually sts check their answers with their partners.
T draws pictures of a shop assistant on one side and a girl on the other side. By using strips of the dialogue T moves step by step to make a full dialogue on the board and indirectly elicit and teach 'One' and 'Ones' to sts. T then uses 'Disappearing Dialogue' activity to drill the dialogue whole class/ half class/ ladies/gentlemen. As T continues drilling he/she take one strip each time forcing sts to remember the missing parts and present the dialogue.
In this stage T gives students hand-outs to provide an opportunity for sts to put words into correct orders to make their own dialogue and work in pairs to practice 'shop language' once again. T also puts the dialogue in correct order on the board. Having practiced in pairs this time sts practice the dialogue once again with T for the last time.
T draws sts attention on 'one and ones' once again and gives them hand-outs to practice them. Sts first work individually and then in pairs to check their answers. The lesson ends with a listening for checking answers.
