To give examples of social behaviour that are clearly right and wrong and that all students will agree with. Check that everyone understands good and bad manners whilst going through examples and work in pairs. They will be required to work in pairs and the T will illicit their answers.

Exposure (8-10 minutes) • To provide context for the target language through a text or situation

Lexis language including verbs, expressions and pronunciation. Impersonal construction, adjectives + infinitive to talk about general situations and infinitive + for to talk about people. Ss are required to understand what verbs are and new expressions they may not have come across before. Also share their ideas of expressions they already know with everyone else. T will illicit pronunciations with the help of various methods and the rest of the group will familiarise themselves with them. Question 2a here will be first and should be no longer than 7 minutes max.

Controlled Practice (8-10 minutes) • To concept check and prepare students for more meaningful practice

Controlled practise for question 4a where Ss listen five excerpts from a conversation.

Semi-Controlled Practice (8-10 minutes) • To concept check further and prepare students for free practice

Semi-controlled practise for beginning to elicit good and bad manners. Question 5 is where I may also semi control to ensure some structure.

Free Practice (8-10 minutes) • To provide students with free practice of the target language

Free practise in regards to questions 2a from page 80 and from page 81 questions 1 to 8. I will seek to let the Ss be free in these situations and let them decide what is right and what is wrong as they need to formulate for themselves and take responsibility to think freely. The T will observe and input if really really needed otherwise they will be free to extract their own beliefs from the questions.
