To practice listening for specific information in the context of phone messages.
To practice reading for specific information and some new expressions in the context of phone messages.
Procedure (45 minutes)
I will play a recording about answer machines from you tube to familiarize them with the topic. Then , I will ask them to ask each other about their phone number to make sure that they read it in a correct way e.g. double five.
By using pictures , CCQs and the board I'm going to introduce the new vocab items . They are business card , enquiries , available and hang up .
Students look at the pictures and answer the questions a-h . Then , in groups they check their answers.
Students are going to try to fill in the gaps first to check their information then they listen to the phone messages to check their answers. They will listen to different phone messages to decide the action that should be taken , hang up , leave a message or press a number on the phone.
The students will read the questions first .Then , listen to the phone messages to answer the questions about what Emily wants to do and the price of the theater tickets.
I am going to ask the students to write their to do list for tomorrow. Then , they tell each other about it.
