Procedure (45-59 minutes)
I will ask the students about their weekend and how do they spend it? Then I will show them some real objects like: a watch, t-shirt, makeup and I will try to elicit from the students some words related to shopping.
T introduces the topic and tells the SS that they are going to learn new words and some useful phrases about shopping. T tells the SS that they are going to watch two dialogues, the first one between a customer and a salesperson in a clothing shop. The second one at the supermarket. But before watching the video, T hands the SS some questions to read. T asks ICQS. "What are you going to do first?" read the questions. T passes the questions: May I see this jacket, please? Do you have in red? May I try on? Do you have a shorter one? Do you have a smaller one? Do you have a bigger one? How much is it? Now watch the dialogues and answer the questions in pairs. T gives feedback by asking two or three students for answers.
T directs SS's attention; T shows the SS flashcards with different items and asks the SS what do they show.
"Shopping vocabulary" T writes the words on the WB: Supermarket, Bookstore, stationary, hardware, news agent, pharmacy, bakery, shopping cart, brand, price, T asks CCQS to elicit meaning then elicit the form. T shows the stress. T then drills the words. "Useful phrases about shopping" T asks the students "What do you say when you go shopping and you want to ask for the price of an item you want to buy?" SS reply "How much is it?" T writes it on the board. T then asks SS "What do you say when you want to try some cloths. SS answers "Where is the changing room?' T writes it on the whiteboard. T then elicits from SS some questions and expressions about shopping and writes on the board. T clarifies the form of these questions and does choral and individual drilling. T shows the stress.
T gives SS a handout to match the shops to the things that we can buy there. T asks SS to work alone then compare the answers in pairs. T checks their answers. Activity 1: - Match the shops below to the things that you can buy there: a baker's - a grocer's - book store - a stationer's - a clothes shop - a pharmacy - a hard ware shop 1- A shop in which medicine are prepared and sold...…………… 2- A store that sells books...…………… 3- A shop that sells metal tools and items used in home life and activities such as gardening ……………… 4- Carrots, tomatoes, and cucumber………… 5- A shop that sells fresh bread and pastries...…………. 6- A shop that sells jeans, boots, shirts and a dress...………… 7- A store that sells office supplies, paper, pens, and greeting cards...…………..
T divides the SS in groups of 3 (depending on the number of the students) . T says that we will make a dialogue together. Each group has to say a short dialogue. T then writes the dialogues on the board. T drills the dialogues. After drilling, T erases some words and switches the characters. SS have to remember the dialogue of another group.
