Lead-in (5 minutes) • To set lesson context and engage students.

1- The teacher greets students and asks them how they are doing. 2- tell the students about my favorite country. Then, ask about their favorite country. For me, Spain is my favorite country. Spain is visited by millions of tourists each year. Spanish cuisine is famous around the world for its amazing flavors. Beautiful nature Lovely weather and climate. In addition to music, dancing is a big part of the cultural heritage of Spain. I love their dancing so much. The Spanish language is one of the most beautiful languages in the world. It is also not impossible to learn Spanish. That's for me! What about you? what is your favorite country? 3- Ss work in pairs. " Ok guys, work in pairs and tell your partner about your favorite place." 4- open discussion. "Now, this group, could you tell me about your partner's favorite country." Lovely.. good.

Preparation for Speaking (10 minutes) • To provide a model of production expected in coming tasks through listening.

1- Ss listen to the audio page 32. "In this activity, Marco is going to Australia for two weeks on holiday. He is asking his Australian Elaine friend to recommend places to visit. Now, listen and number the four places on the map that Elaine suggests. How long do they decide he should spend in each place?" 2- Check answers in pairs with answer key. " OK, guys. you have an answer key, check your answers with your partner." 3- Ss listen again and complete the task. " In this activity, you will listen again and complete the phrases Elaine uses." - Ask ICQs: Now, will you listen the whole sentences or just answers? 4- Ss work in pairs. OK, discuss your answers with your partner." 5- open discussion. " Now, tell me the answer of number one is .."

Useful Language (10 minutes) • To highlight and clarify useful language for coming productive tasks.

1- Elicit Useful language from Ss. " - Now, from your listening to the conversation between Marco and Eliae: Did Eliae suggest places to Marco? Yes. What Phrases tell you this? So if you want to suggest something or give information to someone, maybe places, food, etc. " What do you think is good." we say: " write recommending phrases on the board". "- Did Eliae advise his friend not to visit some places? Yes . which phrases tell you this? So if you want to recommend not to do something / if you want to tell someone what do you dislike?" we can say: " write recommending not to do things phrases on the board." "- How did Eliae show details about places? What phrases tell you this?" So if you want to describe something maybe places we can say: " write describing places on the board." - what is your reaction if I want to tell you ex: Citysatrs moll is one of the most beautiful places in Nasr city." So if someone describes or recommend something to you: you can say : " write responding sentences on the board."

Speaking Task ( Role Play ) (15 minutes) • To provide an opportunity to practice target productive skills.

1- Contribute speaking activity. - Instructions:- - Now, this is a role-play activity. Your friend comes from abroad and your friend asks you to design a tour. Ex: maybe Alex, Cairo, Sharm Elsheikh any places. - You can follow these questions in the activity and useful language on the board to help you design your tour. - You work individually. - You have 5 minutes. - Now play a role with your friend and exchange roles with each other. ********************** Extra Activity: tell your partner about the last trip you took in the past.

Feedback (5 minutes) • To provide feedback on students' production and use of language.

1- Open discussion. " This group, could you tell me about your partner's tour? " " what place did you choose? " " How long the tour will be? " What is the best way to travel from one place to another? " " what are the main things to see in each place? " * Error correction - I heard someone said: I hadn't recommend." It's ok but wouldn't is better. - I heard someone also mispronounce "I'd" Look at this example : what would you like? I would like some tea. -This sentence is correct grammar-wise. Instead of saying: "I would", "I'd" has the same meaning. We call this Contractions. so contraction is a short form. Contractions are very common in spoken English. Not writing, but in speaking, we use them a lot. Okay? - So, let's look at some of these contractions: 1- "I'd". So it almost sounds like "eye-de". Now, maybe you're talking about... To your friend. Okay? In this case, if you want to say: "You would like some tea. you can say: 2- "You'd, "You-de". Now, if you're talking about a boy or a man, Instead of: "he would", you can use: 3- "he'd". Okay? For women, we would use: - "she'd". Okay, now, if we're talking about us and someone else, we would say: 4- "we'd". "We'd like french fries. Finally: 5- "they'd". So any time you want to use the word "would", try to replace it with a contraction.
