Procedure

Warmer/Lead-in (3-5 minutes) • To set lesson context and engage students

Show the slide with the following questions: "Who would you like to spend a day with? Where would you like to go? What would you like to do?" With a picture of Ilber Ortayli, whom I would like to spend an evening with.

Controlled Practice (10-12 minutes) • To gauge students' prior knowledge of the target language

Before letting the students listen to the audio, project the following questions on the board. "How well do they know each other? Why are they telephoning?" and let them know that there will be three people talking on the phone: Nancy, Sebastian and Jason. First Nancy and Sebastian, and then Sebastian and Jason. The students are usually very tired for the last class and it will make it easier for them to grasp what is going on. Let them listen and get a gist of the conversation and then let them discuss the answers with their partner. Then let them listen again while doing the fill in the gaps exercise. But before starting the listening, let them read through the fill in the gaps exercise, so that they don't get confused while reading and trying to listen at the same time. Let them check their answers within their groups this time as there might be pairs of students who don't get some of the answers and would like to listen again otherwise.

Test #1 (6-8 minutes) • Check students' use of the target language again and compile it with the first exercise results

Hand out the second handout which asks students to pick the correct form to complete the invitations part of the worksheet. Let them check with their group and ask volunteers to come up and write their answers on the board.

Teach (5-7 minutes) • To clarify areas of the target language where students had difficulty

If mistakes are monitored, hand out the grammar summary sheet and tell the students to recheck their answers with it and check it with their group, one more time. Then ask volunteers to come up to the board and fix the mistakes.

Test #2 (5-10 minutes) • To gauge students' prior knowledge of the target language

Hand out the last controlled practice of the day. Let the students work with their pairs and then ask them to check their answers with their group. If time allows, also hand out the Invitations and Suggestions exercise 1 from the workbook and let them work with their pairs again.

Teach (5-10 minutes) • To clarify areas of the target language where students had difficulty

If mistakes are monitored at this stage, ask the students to take a look back at the grammar summary sheet provided at the first teach session and reconsider their answers. If any specific problems come up, do MFP with the whole class.

Free practice (10-12 minutes) • To provide students with free practice of the target language

Project the following on the board "Now ask a friend out to go out together!" using the invitation and suggestion phrases we learned today and put them in pairs.
