Procedure (44-55 minutes)
The teacher greets the students and asks them some questions about himself.
The teacher has 26 colourful cards, he shows the blank parts of the cards to the students and asks them to guess what is written on the other sides. After getting their predictions, he shows them the letters.
The teacher plays the track and stops it after each letter and wants the students to repeat the sound they hear. While they are repeating, the teacher shows the related letter by means of cue cards. After this exercise, the teacher writes his name on the board and spells it, then wants them to repeat it. After repeating it enough, the teacher wants the students to do the same spelling activity with their own names.
The teacher introduces himself by using the forms; "Hello. I'm Ulvi", "Hi. I'm Ulvi" and "My name's Ulvi". The teacher models and drills all three forms. And then students are brought out to the centre of the room and asked to make a circle and practice introductions with the people next to them. After that, same stages are done by using the participants' surnames and cities where they are from.
Students read and listen to dialogue T.1.2, then conceal the text and practice the dialogue in pairs. The teacher monitors and gives feedback.
The teacher makes two groups in class and give one swatter to each group. Then he writes the letters on the board randomly and wants the students who have the swatters to hunt the letters they hear as fast as possible. Finally, the faster group is the winner of the activity.
