Procedure (37-42 minutes)
I project pictures of different cities from all over the world on the board. Under the pictures are written numbers like -2 (London) or +6 (Tokyo) Ss have to find out what today's lesson is about. Today's lesson is about time - Londons time is 2hrs behind Izmir time, Tokyo is 6hrs ahead...
T gives Ss a handout. Ss need to fill in the correct time. After Ss finished this task they check their answers in pairs. After that WC FB
T sticks printed clocks outside the classroom and handout a list of times to the Ss. Ss have to match their list with the clocks outside. Ss check their answers in pairs
WC FB from last stage with drilling of correct pronunciation. T project the clock on the WB and forces Ss to tell him the time. T provides immediately correction.
T hands out a picture/text matching task. Ss check their answers in pairs. Ss work in pairs. 1 student point at a picture, the other student tell student 1 the time. T monitors.
T plays a audio file from a PC. Ss have to listen for the time information in the recorded audio and match it with the handouts they were given before. Students check their answers in pairs. T monitors while S make peer check. We will listen again if they had problems to understand the audio file.
Ss work in pairs of 2. Both students have different handouts. Student 1 ask student 2 for the time, then student 2 ask student 1 for the time and so on and so forth... T monitors and provide immediately feedback and correction.
S work in pairs of 2 asking each other time related questions like: When do you get up in the morning? When do you have breakfast? What time do you have lunch? What time do you go to bed? T monitors and make notes. WC FB
