TP 2 (15th September) - Vocabulary "Hotels"
Pre-Intermediate level


In this lesson, students learn vocabulary related to hotels and hotel facilities. The lesson starts with a small discussion about the world's most luxurious hotel. This is followed by another discussion session on five important things a hotel must have. Any interesting vocabulary said by students regarding hotel facilities are going to be written on WB. The next stage begins with a gap filling exercise, any difficulties regarding pronounciation at this stage will be checked through a drilling activity. It is followed by a semi-controlled speaking activity and finally a free speaking activity both of which serve to practice the new vocabulary within small groups with feedback given to teacher at random.


Main Aims

  • To provide clarification and practice of vocabulary related to hotels.

Subsidiary Aims

  • To help students' spoken fluency by giving them free speaking practise.


Lead-in (13-15 minutes) • To warm up and prepare students for an enjoyable English lesson.

I will begin the lesson with the picture of the world's most luxurious hotel Burj Al Arab and ask them its name. I will check how much information they know about the hotel and then we are going to watch a short video which presents Burj Al Arab. Then I will take their attention to a pretty Greek Hotel and ask them what are the five most important things that they need in this hotel. They will discuss this in their pairs and then I will get WC FB. Any interesting answer comes from students is going to be written on WB. At this stage, if they need I will provide them with vocabulary and pronounciation help.

Focus on Vocabulary (13-15 minutes) • To get students familiar with the hotel vocabulary more.

I will introduce them "the booking form" and get them involed in a controlled gap filling activity. In pairs the students will complete the form and I will get FB. After checking the answers as a WC, I will make sure that they know the meaning of each word and they pronounce them correctly. Then we are going to make practice with new vocabulary through drilling. Choral repetition is going to be my main drilling method. The students will repeat words or phrases after me. I also ask them to tell me where is the stressed syllable. I will get the students do exercise 2 with which they will engage in a semi-controlled speaking activity in their pairs. They will use the same vocabulary.

A Free Speaking Activity (13-15 minutes) • To help the students to develop fluency in English by giving them freer speaking practice.

First, I will ask them to think about the best hotel they have ever stayed in and get them to discuss it in small groups through asking and answering some questions. Then I will get WC FB. When ready, I'll rearrange the groups and then I will ask them to discuss on the worst hotel they have ever stayed. So everyone will be discussing on a new topic with a different partner.

Gap Filling Activity for Extra Time (7-10 minutes) • Using the extra time efficiently

I will divide the class into at least three groups and I will share a handout with each group. This handout will provide them with the definitions and example sentences of some key words related to hotels. However, the words will be missing and given them separately. The groups will try to match the words with the correct definitions without any help from the teacher. After 3 or 4 minutes, when their time is up, I will share with them the answers and the group who gets the most correct will win. Everybody will give them a round of applause.
