A trip to Egypt
To provide clarification of natural places in the context of A trip to Egypt
To provide accuracy speaking practice in a conversation in the context of A trip to Egypt
Procedure (33-44 minutes)
I will ask students "where did you spend Eid vacation"? I will demo the activity as I would say : I travelled to..... Students will speak in pairs in three minutes. ICQs: What are you speaking about? (Eid vacation) Are you speaking to a group or to your pair? (to my pair)
I will ask students to do the first task. You have 10 words and ten pictures. Match the words with the correct picture. You will do the task individually in 3 minutes. ICQs: How many words do you have? Ten How many pictures do you have? Ten What will you do match or complete? Match When ss finish the task , they will check in pairs their answers. An open class feedback will be provided.
In this stage, I will teach the main vocabulary they are going to use later through a reading text. I will ask students to read the Boucher to choose one place for a holiday. After they read, They will tell their pair which place they chose and why. An open class discussion will be provided. ICQs: How many bouchers do you have? Two Are you going to choose one of them? Yes Then, I will show ss some pictures of challenging words to elicit the meaning using PPP. I will highlight MFP. Ss will drill the words in sentences.
I will ask students to think about three natural places in Egypt. Students have to use the words in ex 1a. I will demo the activity as I will draw a mind map with many circles that have questions such as where are these places? when can you go there? what activities can you do there? with whom do you prefer going there? Why do you like these places? They are going to tell their pairs about these places. Students have 6 minutes to do this activity.
Students discuss their favorite places in groups. They will have 10 minutes to do it as they are speaking to find similarities. When they finish, I will ask them if they found any similarities or not.
As ss were speaking, I would write down their errors to correct them. I would write some sentences on the board and ask them what do you think is it a correct sentence. If there was plenty of time, I would ask discuss more things related to the topic. eg: What is the nationality of Egypt? which one is correct (egypt/Egypt) why?
