To provide practice in speaking in the context of being at a gift shop.
To practice the functional language of buying gifts in the same context.
Procedure (31-47 minutes)
-show the Ss a picture of a birthday party and ask them to describe it. -Ask the Ss some questions. e.g "what do you take when you go to a birthday party?" , "where do you buy a gift or a present?'' and ''what are the things that you like to buy?".
-Give the students HO and ask them to match the words to the right pictures and give them the time to answer alone. -Then, ask the Ss to check their answers in pairs. -After that, check the answers as the whole class and drill the pronunciation if it is necessary.
-Tell the Ss that they are going to watch a video and ask them to describe this place, and tell me what the woman buys from this place.
-Give the Ss the Gap-fill handout and ask them to try to guess the missing words as a way to elicit the answers from them. -Then, ask them to watch the video this time carefully to check their answers about the missing words, after that ask them to check their answers in pairs and share the answers with the whole class. -Use the written dialogue to ask the Ss some questions to elicit the meaning of the functional language in the context: ''can I help you?" , "How much is that T-shirt?" , ''Can I have a big mug, please?". -Clarify the difference between using "Have got" in British English and ''Have'' in American English. Clarify that by highlighting the question in the dialogue and ask them to put another question equal to it as a way to elicit the answer to clarify this difference.
-Divide the Ss into two teams in which each one will contain a salesperson and the customer who will buy the gift. -Ask them to use the written dialogue to prepare themselves for the task.
-Ask the Ss to start acting their roles and give them the time to practice the TL. -Monitor the class carefully and be careful about how the Ss use the TL
-Give the Ss feedback on language and content.
