Procedure (33-41 minutes)
I will show the pictures of common places in our neighbourhood like hotel, police station, zoo, hospital, bank, pharmacy etc... Then I will ask them questions related to these places. Is there a hotel near your home? Is there a police station near your home? Is there a hospital near here? Which airport is closer to your house? Which bank company is closer to your house? Is there any swimming pool near your home? When was the last time you went to the pharmacy? In this stage, I'll nominate students one by one and ask one of these questions.
In this stage, I will play a record to exposure the target language-giving directions. I'll tell them that they will listen two people who are talking about directions.When they are listening they will follow the conversation on the map. After they will listen and then I'll give them a matching handout. They will match the phrases with the pictures in the handout. They will individually do matching activity and then they will check their answers with pairs. They have 3 minutes. If the students need any guidance to highlight the target language, I will try to draw student's attention to the target language.
In this stage, to clarify the target language I want students to do discovery activities. So they will look at the map again and while they are looking they will the answer questions in the handout which I will give them. Then they will do this individually and check with pairs.
For freer practice, I will want students to draw their own map on the blank paper. They should draw at least 4 places, 4 turning points. They should draw in 2 minutes and then they will change their maps with pairs. Each pair will try to give directions from the map which their pairs will draw.
