To give Ss controlled, semicontrolled and freer practice of languageto talk about likes and dislikes
to give Ss controlled and freer practice speaking practice for fluency.
Procedure (45-54 minutes)
Individually, ss walk around the class with a list of likes and dislikes in hand, to find who: ·loves football, parties and dancing · likes wine, hamburgers and books, · does not mind exams, hospitals and loud music · does not like the internet and mobile phones · can't stand coffee and the traffic in Istanbul The first student who fills the whole list with the names of the other ss, wins.
Teacher gives H/O with a dialogue about likes and dislikes where Ss practice target language. Working in pairs, Ss reproduce the dialogue, which will serve the purpose of controlled practice and at the same time of speaking for fluency. This way ss who don't feel comfortable speaking in front of the whole class can do some talking time with a partner. T will monitor the conversations and check for pronunciation errors which will be corrected on later stages.
Group Work Ss do an activity on correcting the word or phrase to complete sentences (U. 6D Workbook). This ex. extends on opinion adjectives like lovely, awful, great, terrible, boring, etc, and verbs such as adore, like and hate.
T asks Ss to read the completed sentences of the previous activities, and elicits the meaning of some of the words (with "faces" and gestures) and gives FB and clarification on the use of verbs and adjectives to express opinions. T drills some of the words and/or phrases.
Pair Work Ss do a fill in the gaps activity using phrases like "I don't mind; I think; I hate; I love; What about". Then FB is taken w/c as students write the whole sentences (with answers included) on W/B.
Small Group Work Ss write a list of people and things they like. Everyone asks the rest of the group questions such as. -A: What do you think about Beyonce -B: I think she's ok. -A: What about you. What do you think of her? -C: I think she's great. Each group finds a thing or a person everyone (in the group) likes: Then the results are shared W/C
Pair Work: T asks Ss to write and play a small dialogue using the words and phrases learnt and practiced in the lesson.
