To provide fluency speaking practice in a discussion in the context of travel and making friends and couchsurfing.org
Procedure (23-31 minutes)
In this stage I'll start with a question about pen palls and invitation .The answers may be short or long base on their experiences.
As the audio script doesn't have many new worlds I'll just focus on three words which are more related to the context.( host,guest,couch). I'll get more information about the word couch.
In this stage I'll show Ss a picture of couchsurfing website and ask them about what they know or guess about it.
Ss will listen to a part of radio travel program to get some information about couchsurfing. Then they will discuss how couchsurfing works.If they are needed audio track will be played again( I'll skip last part in demo)
Ss will read the practice C to be prepared for the speaker's details about couchfurfing.
Ss will listen to the second part of listening. they will get more details and be prepared to answer practice C. Then they will mark the sentences T or F individually .They will check the answers in pair. I'll check the answers with whole class to get feedback. The scrips will be used if they still need more understanding. I' ll play the second part again to ask some more details(I skip this part for demo)
In this stage Ss will discuss about the ways they can earn money by this website. Even they will bring pros and cons to the subject/
