RALF TP 2 PRE-INTERMEDIATE LEVEL
PRE-INTERMEDIATE LEVEL level
to improve the students' listening skills and practice words related to going out, dating
to give students practice in speaking for fluency, to make them familiar with some familiar expressions (gorgeous, dunno)
Procedure (39-46 minutes)
I will put some picture of famous people on the WB (Spongebob, Tarkan, Madonna, Shakira and Atatürk) and ask them who these people are. I will elicit info ( "who would you like to go out with, where would you go with them, what would you talk about with him or her..) Then, they will write down 3 names of famous people and I ll make them stand up and they will walk around and talk about their idols with the other students.
Since I find the texts quite difficult for the students (due to the speed), I will do some eliciting , concept check questions: , (cheap - xxxx ; morning, afternoon xxxx ..... , breakfast lunch xxxx, tonight I'm free -- tonight I'm xxxx , Thursday, Friday, xxxx, xxxxx ) .. Then I will hand out the texts and tell them to have a look at the four names (Ruby, Davina, Patrick and Stuart). I will ask them to pay attention during the 1st listening and figure out who's speaking to who and what they are talking about)
They will listen to the 2 audio texts and answer the easy questions. (gist) .. first in pairs, then WC
The questions in ex 2 are more complicated and detailed, so I will ask the students to read the sentences in exercise 2 before the 2nd listening. I will hand out the transcript before they listen to the audio a second time. Then they will answer the questions of ex. 2 in pairs and then WC.
I will write some questions on the WB. How old were you on your first date? Were you nervous? What do you think of meeting your husband / wife / boyfriend / girlfriend online? They will answer in pairs and if time permits , also WC
