The teacher starts by reading the definition of "going on holiday" and asks: "Where do you go on holiday in the summer?" Elicit a few answers.
T presents some verbs of things we usually do on holidays and then brainstorms the activity we can do with these verbs and elicit students answer eg: stay in a hotel, fly to somewhere, take a train, rent a car, and so on. After Brainstorming, T gives the Ss time for doing an exercise for practicing: Outcomes Elementary, unit 4, pag 38, exercise 1. After that we do a speaking practice talking about some holidays question. When we finish speaking practice, T introduces some pictures and asks Ss: What can you see in the pictures? Where are the places? and ask Ss to predict their answers. After that, T introduces the reading part, an e-mail, asks Ss to read for Gist and check their prediction, and put the pictures in order. Then T says some cultural notes about the reading and asks Ss to read all over again but this time as a skimming reading and Ss does the exercises related to the interpretation of the reading.
T highlight in the text the grammar points: How was your trip to Korea? How was your summer? Did you go on holiday anywhere? Did you have a good time?
T shows both structures, with the verb be and with auxiliary Did and make some CCQs: 1) Do they have the same structure? (no) 2) Do questions with the verb be need an auxiliary? (no) 3) Do the verbs with the auxiliary Did stays in the base form? (yes) Then T introduces the form: Past simple questions with be Wh-word+ past of be+ subject pronoun+ complement? Past simple questions Wh-word+ did+ subject pronoun+ base form verb+ complement/ object?
For semi-controlled practice, T gives an exercise provided by the coursebook and helps him to model the questions and then drill the pronunciation of these questions.
T asks Ss to choose one thing to talk about and asks Ss to write 5 questions about the topic Ss has chosen.
