In this lesson, SS improve their productive skills through speaking in the context of " misunderstandings " and their receptive skills through listening a recording in the same context. T starts the lesson by telling her story when she had a misunderstanding and SS ask follow up questions. T continues with showing a picture to the class and asking SS questions to get them to predict what the problem is. T gives SS a text, asks them to read and checks their understanding by follow up questions, and provides them with the end of the story. SS retell the story using the given words this time. T continues with the vocabulary task where students match sentences and check their answers in pairs. In the next stage, SS improve their receptive skills by listening to a recording to find out about misunderstandings and T plays the recording again to let the SS listen and get specific information from the conversations. In the final stage of the lesson, T gets students to practise speaking about misunderstandings from their own experiences with their partners and gets them to share their partner's stories with the class.
