Copy of Reading/E-Shopping
Intermediate level


In this lesson, I will start off with a lead in of pictures on the W/B, showing them different ways of shopping and leading (Malls, supermarkets, and vegetable markets).then asking them what other ways of shopping there are? Then, I will pre-teach the vocabulary words and pass a handout of a picture of an E-shopping website,the Ss read the situations and find the link they need to click on (scan reading). Then, they are put in groups by matching the descriptions of the stores(pg.133) with the store names. (skim reading). Then, they will have a race- intensive reading- (reading descriptions 2-3) and in groups. At the end, we will have a freer speaking activity.

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.

While-Reading (14-16 minutes) • To provide students with more challenging detailed, tasks

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
