To provide students with gist and detailed listening pracitce through different conversations about makinhg a reservation in a hotel
To provide review and practice in context for some vocabulary in the context of booking a room in a hotel
Procedure (35-53 minutes)
I will ask the students to recommend a hotel for me to stay in. I will ask about their reasons. They talk about their favorite hotel and the characteristics of a good hotel.
I'll ask the students to work in groups and complete the web page in HO#1 by matching the vocabulary to the pictures. Students listen to check their answers. They repeat and practice the words.
Students will listen to a character who is booking a room on the phone. Before listening, I will elicit some of the things he might ask for. They might refer to the boxed words in HO#1. Students listen and tick the things he asks for in the first exercise in HO#2. They listen again and check their answers.
I will direct students' attention that "book a room" and "reserve a room" give the meaning. Then I will write the following two words on the board "check-in" and "check out" then ask which one is for booking a room and which one is for leaving the room. a sample CCQ might be; which word do I use when i leave my passport in a hotel to stay? Students will listen to answer the questions in the second part of HO# 2 students listen again to check their answers.
Students read the conversation in HO# 3 and try to put the words in the appropriate place. Students listen to check their answers.
Students match the questions in which they had filled the words with the answers. They practice in pairs the conversation by swapping roles between answers and questions. They look at the line to memorize it then look up and try to remember and say.
I will ask the students to look again at the web page in HO#1 and make up their own conversations just like the one the will have practiced in the stage before. If we have extra time they swap roles.
