Teaching Practice 2
Pre-intermediate level


In this lesson, students will have the opportunity to improve their listening skill in the topic of invitation.


Main Aims

  • To provide an opportunity for students to develop their listening skill to get gists and specific information

Subsidiary Aims

  • To provide an opportunity for students to practice their speaking and improve their fluency


Warm up (5-5 minutes) • Get students to talk about their favorite celeberities

I put the picture 4 or 5 famous people on the board and elicit their names from students. If they don't know them I will explain who they are and then I inform them why these are my favorite people by using the 'would like'. (writing on board)

Semi Controlled Speaking Practice (10-10 minutes) • Preparing students to use 'would like'

I ask students to write 3 favorite famous people of their own. Then I ask them so stand up and ask the other students who their favorite famous people are and what they would like to do if they met these people. After finishing their task I get the WC FB by asking their friends favorite people. I want to check if they can use the subject of He or She for 'would like'.

Pre-listening Task (5-5 minutes) • To prepare the students for the listening task

In this part first I put 3 pictures for each conversation on the board and I write the names of the people in those conversations. Then I ask them in pairs to guess what is the context of listening and after that I elicit their answers. I won't give them any clue.

Gist Listening (5-5 minutes) • To enable students to develop their listening skill

I write two questions on the board. 1. How well do the people know each other? 2. Why are they telephoning? Then After playing each track I pause and I give them half a minute to work in pairs and then I elicit their answers. If it is necessary, I will replay the tracks.

Gap Filling Task (5-10 minutes) • To check students understanding of details in listening

I give the hand outs to students (Unit 4D Page 42). They have to fill the gaps based on the conversation. But at first I ask them to work in pairs to guess what word could fill each gap. I will do the first one as an example so they have a clear picture of the task. Then they listen to both conversations and they check their answers in pairs and I get the WC FB.

Post Listening Task (10-10 minutes) • To enable students to improve their sentence making skill

I write part of the second conversation on the board (with some minor changes) and I erase one word from each sentence and students have to complete them. I will continue the erasing until few words remain on the board and it is more challenging for students to make the sentences.
