TP2 (Countries and Nationalities)
To provide gist and detailed listening practice in the context of Countries and Nationalities.
To provide vocabulary review and practice in the context of nationalities.
Procedure (27-44 minutes)
The teacher greets the Ss and uses his own picture standing next to his country's flag -PPT-to elicit the words country and nationality. The rationale behind using real pictures is that they attract students' attention and prepare them for the activity. .
T tells Ss to look at WB and notice as he demonstrates the exercise (TP2 act 1). T asks another student to demonstrate to make sure they get the Instructions right. Ss do the exercise individually then check in pairs ( T makes this clear via ICQs).WC feedback follows and teacher drills some nationalities with the Ss.
T Makes a demo (adapted vocab activity 2) and asks ICQs before giving the HO. Ss do the exercise individually, check in pairs, and then do a WC feedback (focus on stress in pronunciation). T drills the pronunciation of the words: Mexican, Russian, French, American, Spanish...etc.
T elicits the context of the conversations that will come through pictures (Materials: Listening context Hotel Party Airport).
T gives a demo of ex 1 p 19 (materials; demo before map) and checks instructions. T then shows a map (Materials: Pre-listening Map ). T asks: Is the map right or wrong? Ss will possibly answer that it is wrong or that there is a mistake. T leads them to listen to the three conversations
T gives the "listening for details HO" after checking with the students what they are going to do (ICQs). Ss do the exrecise (Materials: Listening for details HO) individually, check in pairs and finally do WC feedback. T checks their understanding using CCQs to make sure they got the details from the tape.
T divides the students into groups (of three) to speak about the food, people, and weather of a country they choose from the board. After this, T monitors. T selects some of the students to report about what they like in the country they chose before. T corrects the mistakes and gives feedback.
