Lead-in (5-6 minutes) • To set the lesson context and engage students

1.The teacher shows two pictures- of a flat and a house- and ask the students if they live in a house or in a flat. 2.The teacher gives a "find-someone-who" handout the students to walk around the classroom to ask and find out about other people's homes.

Revision and Presentation of Vocabulary (10-11 minutes) • To review the vocabulary that they probably know and to teach those that they don't know

1. The teacher uses a slide to show the pictures of different parts of the home and the objects in them. She elicits their names to make sure that the students know them. The teacher might want to teach some words that they don't know. 2.The teacher divides the students in two groups and gives them matching-handout. Each group is supposed to match the pictures with their names on the floor. Any group who finishes first will be the winner.

Listening for gist (5-6 minutes) • To help students develop their listening for gist sub-skill

1.The teacher shows the students the picture of couch surfer to make sure that they know the word. Then she adds a picture of a woman on the board to make a scene of a conversation. The teacher sets the context for this conversation by giving them a short explanation. 2. The teacher gives the students the question for gist and asks them to read the questions. 3. She plays the conversation and get the students to answer the questions individually. When the conversation is finished, they check the answers in pairs. Then, the teachers asks the whole class for feedback.

Listening for specific information (8-9 minutes) • To help students to develop their sub-skill of listening for details

1. The teacher give out the questions for specific information and asks the students to read them thoroughly before she plays the conversation again. 2. The teacher plays the conversation and asks the students to answer the questions on their own. 3. While the conversation is playing, the teacher monitor the students to make sure that they can answer the questions. At the end of the conversation, if the teacher finds out that most of the students have not been able to understand the specific information in the listening passage, she gives them an extra chance by playing it again. When everyone has almost done all the questions, the teacher has them compare their answers in pairs.

Semi-Controlled Speaking Practice (8-10 minutes) • To give extra speaking chance with the target language

1. The teacher draws a plan of her own flat on the board and write the names of different parts on the plan. Then, she tells them about her favorite room and gives them a reason why she likes it. 2. The teacher gives out pieces of papers so that the students draw plans of their own houses and then discuss their favorite rooms in their homes. 3. For feedback, the teacher asks a student from each group to tell the class about their likes and dislikes in their homes.
