In this lesson: Ss will be shown three pictures and video as a lead-in. To get them ready for listening, T will teach the new vocabulary that might block their understanding of the listening task. Ss will predict the topic of the listening based on picture that is shown. Ss will listen for gist, for specific details and then listen again for more details to answer some questions. For the free practice, Ss will have a discussion about who they think should get more paid. The last stage would be a feedback after the discussion.
