Copy of A Weekend Break - Vocabulary
To provide practice of vocabulary items related to hotel facilties in the context of holiday
To give students freer speaking practice for using vocabulary related to hotel facilities to help their spoken fluency
Procedure (45-47 minutes)
I will tell the students that the topic of our lesson is "hotels". I will tell them to imagine that they will stay in a seaside hotel and ask them to work in pairs (or groups, depending on the number of the students) and discuss and agree on 5 most important things that a hotel must have. I will get some answers from the students and write the interesting ones on the white board.
I will give the handout of Straightforward Student's Book Page 50 to the students and ask them to do exercise 1. Before they start, I will clarify the meanings of "location", "hotel facilities", "room", and "room facilities" eliciting the answers from the students. I will ask the students to work in pairs and complete the form. I will be monitoring if the students need any help about the meaning of any word. I will use an answer key to check the answers, reflecting the filled form on the board. Next, I will have some pronunciation practice, showing the stress on the board. I will use the answer key itself instead of writing the words over again, as the answer key already contains all the target vocabulary.
I will give the students exercise 2 to do. I will ask the students to work in pairs and find the most important facilities for the described people. I will get some WC FB and ask the students to justify their answers asking "why?". I will continue with exercise 4. I will tell the students to work in pairs and interview the person next to him/her. Each student will ask the questions in exercise 4 to his/her partner and note down the answers. At the end, they will share their findings with the whole class.
I will monitor and note down the common errors that the students make during pair / group works or while getting whole class feedback and correct these errors on the white board.
