Main Aims

  • To provide detailed reading practice using a text about places of a town in the context of daily life practices

Subsidiary Aims

  • To provide gist listening practice using a text about places in a town in the context of journey


Warmer/Lead-in (2-3 minutes) • To set lesson context and engage students


Pre-Reading/Listening (3-5 minutes) • To prepare students for the text and make it accessible by exposing new lexis

Projecting the VAs. Ask Ss to discuss on what they see. Ask which one we haven't got in Beşiktaş. Give the lexis. Drill.

Pre-Reading-Making Assumptions (2-3 minutes) • To elicit the gist of the reading

By looking at the 3 pictures of the towns, T asks what Ss see on them. Ss make assumptions about the places before the main target reading. Clarify the difference between city, town and village by eliciting.

While-Reading (10-13 minutes) • To make students read the texts in detail and discuss, encourage to peer teach

Ss are asked to make GW and jigsaw reading. T monitors. At the end of the reading, Ss are asked to mingle the groups and tell each other the stories in details.

Post-Reading (5-7 minutes) • To provide with an opportunity to respond to the text and expand on what they've learned

Ss do the exercise 3 on CB with a competition game. Check the answers by assigning each group a name. Each group who tells the answers correctly and fast gets the points. T writes them on the WB.

Listening (6-10 minutes) • Using the new lexis and concept in a listening practice

Just before starting the listening exercise, T shows the Isle of Lewis, elicit the country and introduces Sheena shortly. Ask Ss to check the questions before the listening. Play the audio. One for the first exercise and another for the second. Project the answers on WB. Feedback if needed.

Semi controlled productive task (5-7 minutes) • Giving student an oppurtunity to practice TL in daily life conversation

T elicits from Ss the right grammar form (by ferry or with ferry). Project few pictures guiding for the lexis. Drill. Project personal questions on a ferry journey from Istanbul to Bursa. Ss are expected to speak in PW in a limited time. The concept and lexis of the questions are related with the upcoming listening. T monitors and gives feedback.

Error Correction (2-3 minutes) • To highlight and clarify the mistakes of the Ss after the productive stage

Monitor Ss discreetly, take notes of their mistakes. Write them on the board for feedback.
