The T shows ss a picture of lottery balls asks questions: Do you play the lottery? Do you think it's easy to win the lottery? Imagine you won the lottery. What do you want to do? The ss shares their ideas with the WC and the T asks follow-up questions when necessary.
The ss will be given a folded HO. On the first part of the HO, there will be two sentences that are taken from the listening text in the previous lesson. Under these sentences, ss will see some questions (CCQs) related to the meaning of those sentences and they will be asked to give short answers to them on their own in 2 minutes. T asks ICQs: Are you working in pairs? (no) Are you going to give long answers or short answers? (short) After they finish, the T will put ss into pairs and they will be asked to compare their answers with their partner. And then, the teacher will give the AK and they will check their answers. Next, the T will ask them to unfold their HO and have a look at the second part. On this part, they will see some sentences and incomplete rules. They will complete the rules by looking at the sentences on their own. When they finish, the T will give the AK for the second part and they will check their answers. The T is going to want the ss to have a look at the the sentences in the 'meaning' part. The T draws ss attention to the structures 'be going to' and 'would like to' and then drills them.
The T will put students into pairs and they will be given a folded HO on which they will see four sentences. They will read the sentences and underline the correct alternative in these sentences. They will either choose "be going to" or "would like to" depending on the meaning. When they are done with the activity, T will ask for the answers. [WC FB]

In this part, they will see some words in a row and they will need to write sentences in full using "be going to" and "would like to". They will work alone in this part. The teacher asks and ICQ: Are you going to work in pairs? (no) When they are done, T will ask them to compare their answers with their partner in a minute. Then the T will project the sentences on the board and ask ss to come and write the answers on the board. T will provide ss with error correction on the board if there are any mistakes.
