A2 Pre-Intermediate level
To practice reading skills in the context of markets/stores
To practice speaking for fluency by discussing famous markets and what is typically found in markets
Procedure (38-50 minutes)
T will point to pictures of markets and ask what they are/if they know where the markets are. Do they buy them all in one place? Where do they buy each? Have students discuss if they've ever been to a famous market.
T will have words put on WB and examples of them. Sts discuss differences between shop/market/super store/shopping mall/store/megastore/chain of shops/branch/market stall, etc. Also discuss "gave a hand," and "I've never looked back." Practice pronunciation and ask CCQs.
T will hand out text and instruct sts to read in 3 minutes and then discuss with their partners what the connection is between the text and the pictures. Then have a group discussion.
T will have sts re-read text and put the events in the correct order. Have sts check in pairs, then come up and write out sentences in correct order.
T will instruct sts to complete T/F activity and tell them to correct the False statements with the correct information. T will then pass out HO. Sts check in pairs, then come up to board. Review as class.
T will ask sts what they think the title of the text means. Then, T will have sts work in groups to pretend they have their own stall at a market. T will ask them to discuss what they sell, for how much, how many days of the week they work, what they would name their stall and in which city they'd like to work in. T will have them write down what they decided as a group and then have them say in front of the class.
