Pre Intermediate level
To help Ss develop their listening skills by providing them with some controlled listening practices in order to get gist and specific information about the context.
To enable Ss have a group discussion and express their own opinions about the context of the lesson.
Procedure (35-48 minutes)
I will start the lesson talking about my last night. I will ask them to guess what kind of a Tv programme I have seen. After getting their answers, I will teach them some unknown vocabaulary by showing pictures to help them elicit the meanings of the words. I will check their understanding by asking CCQs. Also, I will inform the Ss about the meaning and form and I will help them pronunce the words correctly via drilling, Apart from these,I will keep directing Ss to the main subjects and concerns of the listening audio via elicitation.
I will ask them to work in pairs and write three things that may be given as a prize in Game Shows. After getting their ideas, I will show them a picture to guess the prize that is mentioned in the listening track. The students will try to make a connection between the picture and the context.
I will give them simple and clear instructions about the exercise. I will ask them to listen the audio and do the first section of the worksheet. After I checked their understanding by ICQs, I will give them the handouts and then start the audio. If the most of the students do not feel difficulty about doing the exercise,I will get their answers and end this stage. If they cannot find the answers at once, I will open the audio once more.
I will give instructions about the stage and then I will ask them to work in pairs and Ss will listen only the first half to do the second exercise. After checking their answers I will finish play the second part of the audio and they will do the last exercise.
I will divide the class into half. I will give instructions and ask ICQs to make sure they have understood the task. One group will support Nasa while the others support the TV show. I will monitor and take some notes while they are discussing. I will also keep the discussion alive by giving them some ideas. If I have time, I will read them their correct and incorrect sentences to help them do self and peer correction.
