TP5- Speaking
Upper Intermediate level


In TP5, learners will be provided speaking practice based on the context of reflecting on life event and choices (job interviews). We will begin with a lead-in and have the students predict the topic of the lesson. They will then have the opportunity in pairs/groups to ask each other topical questions. We will then cover a content based task which will look at job application forms. After that we will then cover target language through meaning, form and pronunciation. The learners will then carry out a controlled exercise (role-play), at a job interview. Finally we will then go into a free practice task, to allow the students to practice language they have learnt in this lesson. We will finish with feedback and delayed error correction.
