Intermediate level


In this lesson the students will learn about What places they would like to recommend to someone that want to travel. My main focus in this lesson is to maximize the students speaking throughout listening to an audio , watching video and personalize task using the phrases of recommending as an example you must see... , I'd recommend and etc.

Warmer/Lead-in (3-5 minutes) • To set lesson context and engage students

Students will watch a video about Australia and then answer questions extracted from the video .

Listening task (7-10 minutes) • To provide a model of production expected in coming tasks through reading/listening

Listening Task –Simplify the task in (Ex3. (the idea of listening here is as a “model” for what they’re going to talk about.) They are going to listen to an audio about Marco his Australian friend is recommending some places for him in Australia to visit and then answer the questions

Preparation for task (8-10 minutes) • To highlight and clarify useful language for coming productive tasks

– Language input - Categorize “useful language” in strips according to function (recommending, describing, responding etc), - answer key Ss choose a place they’d like to talk about Give thinking/preparation time for ss to make notes about what they’re going to say Ss complete task They are going to hear to an audio again the answer the questions in their handouts then let them check their answers in pairs . I will start to ask CCQ's about recommendation phrases they can use while recommending a place or things to someone traveling.

Feedback and Error Correction (8-10 minutes) • To provide feedback on students' production and use of language

In the freer practice of speaking task I'll ask them to design a tour similar to Elaine's by using also the phrases of recommendation .
