Main Aims

  • To expose Ss to different kinds of listening activities such as listening for gist and listening for detail in the context of food

Subsidiary Aims

  • To provide fluency in using food vocabulary learnt in class


Warmer/Lead-in (6-6 minutes) • To set lesson context and engage students

T will greet SS T will ask Ss what they covered yesterday. T will ask Ss "1. What’s your favorite food? 2. If you could only eat three types of food for 10 days, what would you choose?" to set the context and chat with them while the others are joining the class. Our lead in listening activity would be " I went to the shop and I bought...." where students would have to listen to the previous students and add a new item to the list which is a recap of yesterdays vocabulary.

Pre-Reading/Listening (2-3 minutes) • To prepare students for the text and make it accessible

Ss will match the names of objects to pictures. This to reduce blocking vocabulary and make the text easier to understand

Text (1-2 minutes) • to prepare students for the listening activity

Ss will read a short text related to the listening activity.

Prediction (3-4 minutes) • To activate schemata and further prepare students for text.

Ss will be given pictures and, based on those pictures, will predict the qualities and characteristics of the fridges' owners.

/Listening #1 (4-5 minutes) • To provide students with less challenging gist and specific information reading/listening tasks

Ss will now listen to the audio and now match the correct characteristics with the owner's of the fridges. Ss will just need to get a global understanding of the audio

Listening #2 (6-7 minutes) • To provide students with more challenging detailed, deduction and inference reading/listening tasks

Ss will listen to the recording again and this time would need to listen for specific information. Ss will list the food items in each fridge.

Listening #3 (6-8 minutes) • Listening for detail

Ss will listen to a Man ordering food from a fast food place/cafe Ss will then choose the right answer from a list of three possible answers. Ss will then listen to the recording again and this time put the question in order. Ss will listen to one final recording if there's time about two people eating at a restaurant and choose whether the statement is true or false

Post-Reading/Listening (9-10 minutes) • To provide with an opportunity to use what they've learnt into practice

Ss will think of their favorite food and write down how to make it. Ss will then share it with the class.
