To provide fluency speaking practice in a conversation in the context of weddings
Procedure (23-31 minutes)
- To set the context of the lesson and get the student's interest, I'll start the lesson with a small guessing game about the lesson's topic. On the WB, I'll draw a man standing on the top of a ladder in the middle of the sea, with a shark at the end waiting for him. I'll give the students some hints about the word ( there's a lot of music and dancing,..) and the students try to guess the letters of the word " wedding" - In pairs, the students are going to answer some personalized questions about the last wedding they attended.
- To pre-teach some wedding vocabulary ( for example, bride, groom,..) and also some anticipated words that occur in the passages in order to make it accessible for the students. -Students read the first passage for gist and try to answer a few questions. Who send the letter and to whom it was sent./ Where's the wedding?
-Students read the first email and tick the correct answers and correct the false statements according too the email. (activity1 page68). -Students check the answers in pairs and correct the false sentences. - I check the students' understanding of the text by asking: " who's getting married?)
- I tell the students that they're going to read a reply from Phil's aunt, Ellen. - Give the students a gist task before they start reading the second email by answer these questions: Is it possible for Phil to rent a motorcycle? / Di he get the directions to get to his aunt`s house? - The students read the letter then answer the four questions accordingly. ( activity2 p68) -Students check their answer in pairs, then as a WC. - I provide the feedback.
-The students are going to pick sentences with ` can/ can`t` and classify them in a table. - In pairs, the students check their answers and then take turns to write those sentences on the WB.
