Main Aims

  • To provide clarification and practice of new vocabulary about technological devices in the context of technology

Subsidiary Aims

  • To provide fluency speaking practice in a conversation in the context of technology


Warm up/Lead in (3-5 minutes) • to set the context and draw students' attention on the new vocabulary

-T sticks two pictures on the board and asks what they are. (a computer and a mobile phone) -T sets the context by eliciting the word "technophobe" and relates the topic to the previous lessons.

Target Vocabulary Focus (10-15 minutes) • to set the meaning and the use of new vocabulary

-Ss work in pairs. -T gives matching hand outs to elicit the meaning of new vocabulary. Ss match the words/phrases with the definitions through discussion in pairs. -The answer key is given to pairs. If needed, clarification of some words will be provided. -Ss work in two groups. -T sticks some cards including new vocabulary written on them around the class. (switch on/off, plug in, press, restart, turn up/down, replay, shut down, hold down, pause) Ss are given some words/phrases which can be used with the verbs stuck. (collocations) -Ss discuss about the phrases in groups and stand up. Ss go around the class and stick the correct word/phrase under the correct word. -The answer key is given and whole class drilling of collocations is done afterwards.

Practice of Target Vocabulary Form (10-12 minutes) • to provide controlled practice of the new vocabulary form

- Ss work in two groups. - T divides the WB into two parts (the right side of the board) and writes "verbs" on the first and "nouns" on the second part. - T gives cut-ups to each group. Ss discuss about the correct answers. Ss from each group come to the board and stick the words under the correct category. - The answer key is given to each group. - Ss work individually and check the answers in pairs. -Gap-fill HO is given. In this activity Ss complete the sentences with the correct verb from the box. There are 5 sentences and 9 verbs. There are extra 4 verbs in the box. Ss focus on the meaning and form at the same time to find the correct answer. -Feedback is provided to whole class./Answer key is given.

Pronunciation Focus on Target Vocabulary (4-6 minutes) • to provide clarification and practice on pronunciation and word stress

-As verbs and nouns are already stuck on the board, T draw Ss' attention on the target vocabulary. -T drills the target vocabulary with whole class and tries to elicit the word stress and provides it on the board. -Ss might have difficulty in pronouncing some words so T writes the phonemic alphabet of these words.

Speaking Practice (5-7 minutes) • to provide speaking practice on target vocabulary and help Ss to be able to use the target vocabulary in a conversation

-Ss work in pairs. -Each student is given a role card including a situation/a problem written on it. The other student tries to help/solve her friends' problem by using target vocabulary. Ss use their own words and create ideas on the focus of target language. Then Ss swap roles.

Freer Speaking Practice (extra) (3-5 minutes) • to provide freer speaking practice on target vocabulary

-If there is extra time, a (hot-seat) game is played with whole class. -A chair is put in front of the room and facing away from WB. T writes a target word on the board and Ss try to describe the word without telling it. S in the 'hot seat' must try to guess the word with the help of description of his/her classmates. -Whole class feedback is given.
