To provide fluency and accuracy speaking practice in a discussion in the context of work
To provide specific information in the context of work
Procedure (43-60 minutes)
First, Ss will number the work-related items in order of their importance. They will work together and discuss with each other to do so.
Working in pairs they will match the words which are related to work with their definitions. Following this, they will listen to their pronunciation and repeat.
Giving them some handouts about work areas I will ask questions "Which industry does a chef, cook, waiter work in?", "Which industry does a model and fashion designer work in?", "What types of jobs are there in the entertainment industry?", "Which work area is good for you? Why?".
Ss will listen to ex.1A (p22) and complete the gaps. Then I will highlight the words on the board eliciting answers from them such as "Which phrases are positive?", "Which are negative?" "Which is not positive or negative?".
In this stage Ss will do the tasks Ex: 2A and 3A (p20) and they will compare their answers with each other. I will give them feedback considering their speech. As an additional stage when there is enough time Ss will read a short text from BBC programme and try to guess the meaning of highlighted words in it. (p.24)
