In this lesson the students will listen to a recording in which several people speak about their feelings (fear, stress) . This will also be the context they will deal with. First, as a lead in,there will be a competition: which of the 2 groups can first match the images and the sentences? Then I will pre-teach, elicit some words related to feelings. After the first listening (gist listening).they will answer general details. After the 2nd listening more detailed questions will be answered. Then, they will mingle and speak about their own experiences and feelings.

With the listening exercise hand-out on their table, they will listen to the recording and match the speakers to the questions.

While-Reading/Listening #2 (10-13 minutes) • To provide students with more challenging detailed, deduction and inference reading/listening tasks

They will listen to the recording again and make notes what each speaker said. I will then give them the answer key (the script) so that they can compare on their own.
