Procedure (50-67 minutes)
I will right down on the board the following statement "When in Rome, do as the Romans do" and I will ask the student to discuss what it means and what it refers to then I will get the students feedback and I will ask if they have a similar statement they say in Saudi Arabia and they explain it to me in English.
I will give each student a handout with questions to think about and then in pairs they can discuss and share their answers. - What are the ways of greeting in Saudi Arabia between people? ex. Saying hello & goodbye, meet for the first time, fiends, strangers... - The way how the people wear in Saudi Arabia "men ,women, at work" - The lunch time break in KSA. After the pair discussion, I will ask the As and Bs to share their ideas together to get more ideas about the topic. I will monitor their discussion and will make corrections on the board after the feedback
I will ask the students to do exercise No.1 to check whether these statements are true or false in Saudi Arabia and discuss why some of them are false.
I will ask the students to do exercise No.2 to match between the lines to the paragraphs in text and then write the answers on the board.
I will ask the students to work individually to answer the questions in exercise No.3 then I will ask them to discuss their answers with their new partner then I will take the students' feedback.
I will ask the student to hide the text and I will give them a Hand out for some countries to write down the customs for each country according to what they think about. "work in pairs" Then I will get the information and write their answers on the board then I will tell them to reveal the text to check their answers whether their guesses are right or wrong.
I will ask the students to sit in a group of three and each group will have a different question from the other group. Group A - Think of two examples of bad manners in your country. For example in Britain it is considered impolite to ask people how much they earn. Group B - What advice would you give somebody coming to live and work in your country. Group C - "When in Rome, do as the Romans do" Do you agree or not? and why? Then I will number the students in each group and then ask the 1s, 2s and 3s to sit together and share their ideas with their group.
