Procedure (40-48 minutes)
T asks where "where do children learn to read or write" and tries to elicit "school". T writes this on the boad and shows a picture of a young boy and ask "what is the name of the school this boy goes to" and tries to elicit "primary school". After this T will ask same question showing different pictures and tries to elicit "nursery school" "university" and "secondary school". The names of the schools will be put on the WB next to the pictures so that the Ss can see which picture and school type match.
T will divide the Ss into pairs and they will try to match the American school names with the British ones (which was done in the previous stage as a WC).
T will ask students to repeat the names of the schools along with the tape. While doing so T will put the American school names in the correct order next to the British ones. UK: Nursery school, primary school, secondary school, university US: Kindergarten, elementary school, high school, college
By showing pictures T tries to elicit: 1) Medical college/university 2) Law school 3) Library 4) Boarding school Before writing them on the board T will drill them.
T will give each student a paperslip where is written either a name of a school or a description. T will then ask the Ss to stand up and by mingling and talking they will try to find the person who is a match for their own paperslip. After they have found each other, T will ask the Ss to read their paperslips.
T will give the Ss a table and asks them to fill the first column with the correct information while reading. T will emphasize that it is not important to understand every single word.
T will ask the Ss to fill out rest of the columns on the table while listening.
T will ask the Ss to discuss and check the answers in pairs. After a few minutes T will give the correct answers as a handout to the pairs.
T will write on the board the possible errors that have come up during the lesson. If there aren't any (pronunciation or grammar) T will go through few things from the listening: Library (singular) - Libraries (plural) Country (singular) - Countries (plural) The University of London vs. London University Mosque
T will divide the Ss into two groups. There are words on the WB (familiar from the lesson) and when T says a word the Ss will try to catch the correct word from the WB before the other team.
