Oliver TP1 Having an interview
Intermediate B2 level
Vocab: To provide clarification and practice of interview vocab related to having a job/college placement interview
Reading: asking Ss to read and check their comprehension though a task in the SB
Procedure (40-51 minutes)
I'm going to ask students to look at the pictures on the hand-out and ask them to identify the type of interview they think is taking place in the picture. I will require them to give the reasons for their choice. I will explain the meaning of 'the real you' and next I'm going to ask them to discuss the questions in ex. 1b in groups of 3. (Grouping Ss shouldn't take too much time so I'm going to ask them to simply sit in groups of 3 according to their choice.)
I'm going to ask Ss to look at the hand-out and teach them the target vocab one by one. The target vocab: show enthusiasm, answer briefly, shake hands firmly, send references, dress smartly, speak clearly, avoid eye contact. For the most part I am going to use synonyms and some body language to clarify the meanings of the new words. I am also going to give example sentences within the right context. To have the students grasp the right pronunciation choral drill might come in handy.
Ss get back in groups of 3 (previous groups) and do exercise 2A from the CB. I am going to walk around the class and monitor students. I will provide help with vocab where needed.
I'm going to give Ss 5 minutes to read the text individually and once the time is up I'm going to put them in their old groups to check their predictions in ex 2a. In their goups Ss will continue from the CB and do ex.3 To wrap the class up I am going to have the students use the target vocab and discuss the question from ex.3 openly in class.
