T is to tell Ss that T will show them photos of 4 different places to live. Ss will need to write down their associations(3-4 words/phrases), evoked by the photos. T is to ask prompting questions: “What do you think it is like to live there? How would you describe the place on the photo?” Each S will get a printout of the photos with enough space to write their associations around the picture. T is to ask Ss to compare their associations in a group or pairs, if there are enough Ss. After that T is to ask Ss to discuss and decide on one place they would want to live in and why.
T is to elicit necessary vocabulary (ex.1, p.28) from Ss. T is to ask Ss to work in pairs: please, take a look at the pictures, discuss what the recording is going to be about. After the discussion, T is to ask Ss to match photos to words from the box.
