Main Aims

  • To practice listening and answering questions related to the listening on the context of 'transportation'

Subsidiary Aims

  • To do a speaking activity by the learned vocabulary in the context of transportation.
  • To check the answers of the listening activity by scanning the text.


Warm up - Ball Game (2 minutes) • In this stage I'll make the students refresh their knowledge on transportation.

In this stage I'll ask students to stand up and throw the ball to their friends and say a vehicle name. T: 'I want you to stand up and make a circle, I'll throw this ball and say a vehicle name and you'll continue by saying the vehicle names that you've learned yesterday.' T starts the game.

Pre-listening (2 minutes) • In this stage teacher introduces the vocabulary that will be used in the listening activity.

T elicits the words that can be unfamiliar for the students. T:' You have learned many vehicles like, car, bus and so on but think abour bus, metro, train, minibus what do we call them?' Teacher tries to elicit the word 'public transport' She drills them after getting the word. T: 'think you are out of here and will take the metro, how will you go to metro?' T can draw stairs on the WB and tries to elicit 'escalator' (Most probably they won't be familiar with the word.) T drills it after eliciting. T: 'Think that you are using public transport everyday, there is a special cards in Turkey and they are cheap, what do we call the people that use these cards and public transportaion everyday?' T tries to elicit commuter (but it's a difficult word, most probably they will be unfamiliar with this word too.) T drillls the word: 'commuter'

Listening Activity (4-5 minutes) • In this stage students will do a listening activity on Escalators

T: 'you are going to listen to a report, I want you to listen and tell me if the commuter is a man or a woman.' After the finish they discuss with their partners, T gives a workseet on the lsitening activity and asks Sts to circle the correct option. T: ' You'll listen it one more time and this time I want you to circle the correct option in the five sentences.' When they finish they do peer-check.

Listening Activity (7-8 minutes) • In this stage students will first listen to 'coming to Hong Kong and do a matching activity.'

In this stage students will work on the big numbers through a listening task. T:'You are gong to listen to a record about Hong Kong, I want you to match the numbers with the information.' After they do the listening and matching they are going to do peer check. When the students finish teacher gives out the script of the listening and by reading they will check their answers again.

Activity worksheet on big numbers. (3-4 minutes) • In this stage by reading the numbers students will decide which number is bigger.

T shows the STS a WS. 'I want you to look at these numbers and decide which number is bigger, and circle the big one.' Teacher will demonstrate first one for the STS. When they finish they listen and repeat the numbers.

Board Rush Game (2-3 minutes) • In this stage students will play a game on the big numbers.

T sticks some numbers on the board and she divides the class in to two groups. T:'Please stand up and line up, I'll tell a number and the group which has the correct number will win a point.'

WS activities on the big numbers (4-5 minutes) • In this stage STS will practice big numbers with two activities

T gives a WS the the STS. T: 'Read the numbers and match.' When they finish they do peer check. T gives a WS and asks STS to write the numbers they see. T: ' You have got six big numbers here I want you to look and write them.' When they finish they do peer check.

Speaking Activity (8-10 minutes) • In this stage Sts will practice speaking on 'Transportation.'

T divides the class in to three groups (This can change according to the numbers of the students) and gives a handout about transportation and asks Sts to discuss. T: 'Here are eight questions about transportation, I want you to discuss these questions in your groups.' When students finish discussing teacher changes the groups and asks STS to discuss in different groups.

Extra Writing Activity (5-6 minutes) • In this stage Sts will write a report about the transportation in İstanbul by using the answers they did in the speaking activity.

T asks STS to look at their WS and makes groups and asks STS to write a report about the transportation in İstanbul. T:'I want you to look at the questions you discussed and with your partner I want you to write a report about the trasportaion in İstanbul.' They can have a difficulty to write so T can write some questions on the board. In İstanbul which vehicles we have for public transportation ? Are they easy to use? Why/Why not? Are they cheap or expensive? Which ones do you use? Why? They can change their groups and share their opinions with the other members of the class.
