Main Aims

  • To provide clarification of words and phrases related to job in the context of jobs.

Subsidiary Aims

  • To provide accuracy speaking practice in a conversation in the context of jobs.


Lead-in • To arouse students' interests about the topic to link the target vocabulary effectively.

First, greet students and tell them that they will play a game. I will write some letters on the board randomly. While they are waiting curiously, I will divide them into two groups. I will tell them: "Work in groups. Find a job name starting with one of the letters." I will give an example before they start. At the end of the game, the gruop which founds more jobs will win.

Speaking • To warm-up students by arousing interest about the topic to link to the target vocabulary.

In this satge, I will divide the class into two groups (probably there will be 6 students in each group.). I will give everyone a description of a job. There will be six different jobs in each group. Students will read the instrucions to their group members, and they will try to guess which job it is.

Test-Teach Vocabulary • To introduce new vocabulary to the students related to jobs.

Firstly, I will write: work for work in work with on the board. Then I will give them some phrases ( the government, a difficult boss, a fizzy drink company, a large factory, a small office, nice people, my father) and ask them to match the phrases. When they finish it, I will give them Exercise 2 and ask them work in pairs. I will give them five minutes and monitor them to check in which parts they have problems. When they finish the activity, I will tell them the difference between those three words in the exercise ( job, work, career).

Test-Teach Vocabulary • To introduce new phrases to the students related to jobs.

Firstly, I will give students Exercise 3 and ask them to work in pairs. They will match the phrases in the exercise. When they finish matching, they will check theirs answer within their groups. I will try to elicit the meaning of phrases. I will use CCQs. (eg. He is out of work. Does he have a job now?) After that, I will drill the the phrase and then full sentence.

Production- Speaking • To practice the use of the target vocabulary in different sentences.

I will give students the Exercise 4 and ask them to work in pair. Students will ask the questions to their partners and and take small notes. At the end of the the activity I will give a WC FB and finish the lesson.
