To elicit, check meaning, drill and then write the written form of the following vocabulary words from the text:" connoisseurs, memorabilia" First, I will show pictures to elicit both words, and I will ask CCQ's, then I say the word and drill the Ss,Finally, I write the word on the board marking parts of speech and pronunciation.
Pass out handouts of page 90. Then, show Ss the picture of the on-line shopping website. Tell the Ss to look at ex.1, read the sentences quickly and find which link you would click. Tell the students that everyone does this activity individually. In pairs, the Ss discuss these answers. Choose a Ss to write the answers on the board.
Pass handouts of descriptions of three online stores (pg.133).They quickly read the text and match them to the stores. Have them discuss their answers with their partners . Then re-group by dividing the class into 3 groups. Give them a handout ex.3, pg.90 , then give them instructions that they will have a race between the groups, they must read the descriptions again and match them with the stores. First team to finish with correct answers wins the race. Whole class feedback
