To provide fluency speaking practice in a conversation in the context of complaining
Procedure (45-55 minutes)
I will show the class three pictures and will ask the Ss who the peolpe are and what they're doing. Ss have to make guesses about the picture with having my questions in mind.
I will ask the Ss to listen to the audio and find out who is unhappy and why and make notes. I will let them compare their notes with their partners. Ss will listen to the audio and skim to find out who is unhappy and why. The they compare that with their partner.
I will give Ss a sheet with phrases that were in the audio. They have to memorize the listening and have to match by whom the sentence was said. Ss work in groups and have to match the phrases with the persons.
I will let the Ss fill in the gaps while listening again and let them compare with partner. Then I will ask them to match the sentences with the group in exercise 2 p.93 in groupwork. They have to match the complaining phrases with the brief description, i.e. explaining the problem,expressing dissatisfaction etc. Ss listen again, do scan listening and fill in the gaps on their own according to the audio. Then they compare it with partner and decide which sentence belong to which group in exercise 2
I will ask the Ss to add one more sentence for each group
If time the Ss will do exercise 1 and put the words in correct order.
