To provide gist and specific information listening practice using a text about rooms and furniture in the context of a telephone conversation
To provide fluency speaking practice in a conversation or discussion in the context of room preferences.
Procedure (36-47 minutes)
Ask Ss to share their experiences in looking for rooms when they are travelling. "What is the first thing you will do when you are planning to visit a place? Looking for places to go? Looking for rooms? Planning on transportation?" Then T can elicit by sharing their own experiences and continue with the accommodation website.
T shows the website on the screen and play the recorded audio. Ss will have to listen for gist and discuss which place they were referring to in the phone conversation. T discuss the answer and provide feedback by highlighting the keywords in the main room.
T send the link to Ss and they will be working in pairs to complete the matching activity together. Ss will be listening to the audio and match them with the correct vocabulary. Demonstrate the task before sending them to the BORs and remind them to play the audio a few times if they have couldn't hear it clearly.
T show exercise B on screen and remind Ss to take a screenshot. Play the recorded audio again and they will have to listen for specific detail this time. They will listen to the audio in the main room and discuss the answer with their peers in the BORs.
Ss work in pairs to discuss what is important for them in choosing a place to stay when they are travelling with vocabularies that they have learned in this topic. Ss will be able to practise their speaking and listening skills in this activity. They will then share their partner's answer in the main room.
