T displays a projection that includes the seven new vocabulary items; a mountain, a lake, a forest, a desert, a river, an island,and a national park. T elicits the words from sts if possible. If not, T provides the new vocabulary, checks meaning by asking sts to give examples of the new words from their own country, and finally drills pronunciation.
T distributes a HO including a vocabulary exercise on the words they have just been introduced to. Sts complete the exercise. T conducts feedback by having sts listen to the answers.

T explains the task to sts. Sts will listen to an audio track and choose the main idea of the audio. T distributes HO and plays audio track n2.40. As the main aim in this lesson is both listening and reading, sts listen to the text without reading it. T conducts feedback.
T distributes another HO to students and plays the audio again. Sts complete another listening exercise about details from the audio. Sts check in pairs. T plays the audio again if most sts do not the right answers. T conducts WCFB.
Before the lesson has started, T sticks the reading text to the wall. Next to it, T sticks 3 slips of paper. One of which is the title of the text. T divides the class into three teams (depending on the number of the sts). T demonstrates the task. Sts have 30 seconds to decide the best title and go back to their seats. T conducts feedback.
T disributes another handout with numbers. Sts need to go and find what the numbers refer to. Sts do this in turn if they are pairs. T conducts FB. Based on these numbers, sts do exercise 2 (reading and listening). Sts complete the exercise and check in pairs. T monitors and checks if needed.
T writes the question. "Are there cultural or natural sites in Turkey?" T can write some responses on the board. T can show the students the website of UNESCO World Heritage sites and show them the registered sites in Turkey if there is time.
