T tells students they are going to listen to an estate agent showing Ana and Carlos a flat they are thinking of renting. T sticks a large copy of the floor plan on WB and explains that the students need to write down the names of the rooms in the correct place. T distributes the HO and plays the track once. After, T nominates Sts to share their answers while T writes the rooms on the HO.
T explains that Sts will listen to the recording again. This time they should write down the name of two items they hear for each room. 'For example, if you hear the estate agent say: "there is a bed in the bedroom", write down "bed" in bedroom'. T plays recording again. Sts check their answers in pairs and after a few minutes, T writes down the answers on HO.
T sticks a large version of HO2 on WB and explains that Sts will now listen again and fill out the form. First, the Sts will read through the form and write down anything they remember. T answers potential Qs about terms on the form. T plays recording again and lets Sts check their answers in pairs. T writes down answers on large HO when Sts are almost done.
