Exposure (8-10 minutes) • To provide context for the target language through a listening task

T says "To buy clothes, we need to go to the shops. Now, we will listen to a listening/conversation at a clothes shop. Please, listen carefully and number the sentences." T plays the audio twice. After that, students pair check their answers. T elicits answers and give feedback. Before T plays the audio again, T says "Now, listen carefully again, look at the sentences and write S for shop assistant and C for customer." Students pair check before whole class feedback.

T makes pairs, one takes handout A, the other takes B. T says "Now, A will be shop assistant and B will be a customer. Complete the blanks in the dialogue by asking the questions to each other. So for example, who starts first? (Shop Assistant-T reads the sentence) Now, look at B's paper, it's blank. So she'll write what I said." T notes down any language errors. Students check with other groups. Then, T projects the answers on the board.

T says "If you're a customer, go and ask the shop assistant if they have what you want to buy. If you're shop assistant, decide if you have it or don't." T repeats the instruction again if needed. T continues "You need to speak at least three(depending on the number of the students) shop assistant/customers. When I clap, change the roles. You have 7 mins." T monitors and helps students if needed. T makes note of good language and vocab use. T writes down the errors.
