In this lesson the students will practice listening and speaking skills. ın the beginning of the lesson I will elicit different types of movies by showing some films fragments. The students will learn the basic genres of movies by unscrambling the words as pre-teach task. Then I will play a track of a film critic who talks about a new film and for gist listening task, the students will note down the role of the people that are given to the students in the handout. This is followed by some exercises for detail listening. Finally, there is a controlled practice that the students will think of a film they like and will make notes under some basic questions and learn their friends' by mingling in the classroom.
