pre-intermediate level


In this lesson, students develop their reading and speaking skills and they also learn about some vocabularies related to show. The lesson starts with a discussion about all they can guess about the picture. This is followed by skim reading where students read the first part of the text very quickly to get an idea about the whole text and answer a couple of general questions. There are two more different types of tasks afterwards: "Reading for Detail" in which students read the text more carefully and decide which sentence is true and which one is false; "Reading for Inference" in which they practice reading for inferred meaning.
