Pre-Listening (8-12 minutes) • To prepare students for the audio

ss will look at each image displayed on the screen. 6 different kinds of unusual homes will be introduced. Here, I will show them the image and elicit the words. Then, they will know the meanings of each. The words are: windmill, cave, lighthouse, tree house, mobile home, houseboat. We will focus on each one`s pronunciation and syl stress. Then I will lead the answers to also elicit : authorities, local, camp, dramatic and lonely. Because reminding these words will help them for a better listening comprehension.

Listening #1 (5-7 minutes) • To provide students with less challenging gist and specific information listening tasks

Three audios will be played and they will answer which ones of unusual homes have been talked about.

Then the audio will be played again, and they will make notes about best and worst things about each one. This time, I can play the audio twice. Then they will check with their pair.

Post-Listening (8-10 minutes) • To provide with an opportunity to respond to the text and expand on what they've learned

one ss will come to the board. He/she will put an image of one house over their forehead and the other will explain what kind of home it is. He/she will guess till he/she will find the name of the home.
