Main Aims

  • To provide ss clarification and practice in using functional language

Subsidiary Aims

  • To provide ss a model for their speaking through a listening text.


Lead-in (5-8 minutes) • To get ss interested in the topic and to provide a link between the former lessons.

Ask students "Do you travel a lot?" and receive answers as whole class. Then ask students "Which way do you travel?" Elicit some answers and write on the board. Ask students if they've ever travelled in a train. Then reflect the ticket picture on the board. Tell students they'll fill the gaps in the tickets in pair work. After that i'll talk about the lexis in the text (departure, first class, standard etc.)

Exposure (8-10 minutes) • To expose ss in context for the target language and provide a model for speaking through a listening text

Tell students that they'll listen a conversation between Brandon and Travel Agent and answer questions about the conversation. Ask them to read the questions of ex8a. Then play the audio. If necessary, play the audio again. Students will check answers with their pairs. Then whole class feedback.

Clarification - 1 (Vocabulary) (4-6 minutes) • To clarify meaning of related vocabulary for the target language.

I'll tell students to read the instruction of ex8b. I'll do the first one with them. Students will work in pairs. there will be a short feedback,

Clarification 2 - Functional Language (12-15 minutes) • To clarify the meaning, form and pronunciation of the target language

Explain students that they'll listen the text again, and they'll also have the transcript of the text. After they listen and read the text, I'll tell them to complete the "How to... box" individually with the help of the text. They'll check their answers with pairs then whole class feedback. During the feedback, I'll write on the board sentences from the box. and I'll clariify the meanings, tell why do we use these sentences / questions. Also, I'll check the meaning by giving examples and asking CCQs. I'll also show the difference of "want" and "would like". I'll emphasise that, would like is more polite than want. I'll ask students to find sentences in the text with the phrase "would like to". Drill on the pronounciation of "would like to / 'd like to"

Controlled Practice (8-10 minutes) • To concept check and give students practice of meaning and form.

Tell students to complete the dialogue individually and check the answers with pairs. There'll be a short feedback with an answer key. After the feedback students will practice the dialogue with their partners. They'll swap roles. I'll monitor and help with the pronounciation. I'll write the pronounciation of some mispronounced words on the board if it's necessary.

Free Practice (8-10 minutes) • To provide students with free practice of the target language

Explain students that they'll do a role play. Tell them to read the instructions on their HO. Ask their roles, get answers to check if they understand their role. Let students to read their part, and practice with pairs. I'll monitor and give some FB in needed areas, when they finish their task. After feedback I'll ask them to change their pairs and do role play again. If time allows, i'll ask students which train ticket option is the best.
