1.Students get a story board “Kemal’s career”. Students look at the story and using their prior knowledge, discuss what they can see in the pictures. Students work in small groups so they can help each other with the vocab. 2.Students get shuffled sentences that they have to match to the pictures in the storyboard. After they have finished, teacher gives them answers on the WB.
Students get a HO with words and phrases. They have to match them to their definitions. This task helps to convey the meaning of the new vocabulary. Sts work in pairs. The teacher monitors. Whole class feedback: teacher is checking if sts really understood the meaning of the new vocabulary by asking CQs, elicits the form and drills the pronunciation. Sts are given the answer key
Controlled practice: sts get a dialogue with gaps. They have to fill in the blanks with work vocabulary. The controlled activity is set in the context of job interview so that sts can practice new vocabulary more naturally.Sts work iin pairs. Teacher monitors

After the groups have finished, sts from both groups work together in pairs role playing a job interview.
