Main Aims

Lead-in (3-5 minutes) • To set lesson context and engage students.

I greet students and start the lesson by showing the following question: - Where do you usually go for vacation? Some options with pictures are presented: - I stay home. - I visit my family. - I go to the beach. - I go to another city. - I go to another country. I will model an answer. Students will share their ideas.

Content Preparation (5-7 minutes) • To prepare students for the content of the task.

I present a video about places in London. Before watching the video, I ask students to take notes of the places that are mentioned in it. After watching the video I ask the following questions: - Did you travel to London? - Do you want to go to London? - Which place do you want to visit?

Language Preparation (10-12 minutes) • To highlight and clarify useful language for coming productive tasks.

I will conduct meaning, form, and pronunciation. Meaning: I will show different pictures and sentences. Students will match the sentences with the correct pictures. I ask some CCQs to clarify the meaning: 1. Were you afraid? 2. Were you relaxed? 3. How long is a really short flight? / How long is a really long flight? 4. Were there landscapes? 5. Could you sleep? 6. Did you enjoy it? Form: I will remark some words from the previous sentences and ask them to classify the words in the correct box. Then, I will elicit the difference between intensifiers asking some CCQs: 1. Do they have the same meaning? 2. Which is stronger? Pronunciation: I will analyze pronunciation features asking some CCQs: 1. How many syllables has the word "comfortable" got? Where is the stress? 2. How many syllables has the word "scenic" got? Where is the stress? I will model the correct pronunciation, and ask them to drill.

Productive Task (8-15 minutes) • To provide an opportunity to practice speaking fluency and expand on what’s been learned.

I will ask students to describe their last vacation. I will show some questions and model an answer. I will give them 3 minutes to write the answers on a piece of paper individually. I will ask questions about the questions to clarify doubts. Students will work in pairs and compare their answers in Breakout Rooms.

Feedback and Error Correction (5-6 minutes) • To provide feedback on students' production and use of language

I will conduct DEC. I will use a board to write and correct some mistakes made during the speaking activities. I will ask if there are any questions left. If there are, I will address them. If not, I will thank students for their time and say goodbye.
