Procedure (45-59 minutes)
Ask the students questions that lead into the main topic of arranging travel plans. To warm up, student will be asked the following: Where do you want to travel to? What are the first things you will search up in order to plan your trip?
Students will listen to an audio of someone making a booking for a hotel room. They will be exposed to phrases such as, "I would like to make a reservation", "what rooms are available" and "May I know the available packages?"
After practicing the language used in the audio. The students will practice together how to make a reservation themselves. They will be asked to do a role-play where one student is the hotel manager and the second is the one making the reservation.
Students will now plan a written piece where they describe what they did when they were traveling and what they liked the most about their trip to share this information with a friend.
Students will share their written pieces to their colleagues in pairs. Then each student will report back to the class about their colleague's writing and what they have explained about their trip.
We will go through the sentences used by students in the previous task and highlight important vocabulary and sentence structures.
We will wrap up the lesson by students sharing what they would want to do differently if they traveled again and what travel tips do they want to include in their future travel planning.
