Procedure (39-43 minutes)

I have prepared a google document, that indicates that the students should discuss why they phone telephone conversation in relation to travel/transport... The reason I have chosen this topic, is that last week Jose, one of my friends on the same course, presented a class about choosing a holiday, and this idea ties in very nicely...
I have created three dialogues relating to booking a ticket for a train The first conversation : A client askes customer service how much the tickets are, and asks for a recommendation, and customer services gives him a recommendation and gives him the information. (In this part of the task: Students have to decide on the meaning : In which part of the task does customer service give a recommendation, In which part of the task does the customer service give information IN the second part of the conversation: Customer service asks for information, name , and asks the student for clarification: In this part of the task Students have to decide whether it is informal or formal language In the third part of the conversation: Students have to decide on the stress.. the pronunciation of Would, May, anything more.. Also in the third part of the conversation the students have to decide if Could is a Verb, a auxiliary verb, a modal verb, if it follows ing... etc.
I have copied the three dialogues, and ask students to complete the gaps. This will allow students to scaffold the speaking task appropriately.
I have created a jamboard, which includes different prompts.. and students will use the different prompts to create a small conversation... asking for prices..
To assist students with pronunciation, grammar mistakes...
The first role play: Client wants to book a train ticket, and would like some recommendations regarding prices.. so he would like some recommendations which one would be cheaper... The second role play: Client wants to book a ticket, but does not know.. if bus, or train... so he would like some recommendations.. which one would be better..
Provice reassurance and motivation and further correction if necessary...
