Procedure (38-60 minutes)
Ensure seating is in a line or horseshoe pattern. Greet the students and introduce myself. Ask Sts to tell me their names so I can repeat them back to ensure proper pronunciation. Sts will count around the class 1-20. Depending on their abilities I may do a drill of the numbers with them.
Listening task 1 Show pictures from page 10. (Ask students to tell me what the pictures are.) Sts will listen to four conversations (1.14) and match them to the pictures show on the HO. Play conversations 2/3 times according to their needs. Give corrections to students by writing them on the white board. Listen to conversations one at a time.
Reading and listening activity. Show students functional language exercise 1 and ask them to read it quietly. Play the lesson (1.15) 2-3 times. Ask 2 sts to read the conversation aloud. Repeat with another pair. Drill phrases if necessary. What's your phone number? My phone number is ....
Listen and repeat exercise. Play functional language exercise 2 (1.16) 2/ 3 times for the students to listen. Play it again stopping after each number and ask a student to repeat the number next use drilling of the number with the whole class.
Using functional language exercise 3 students will work in pairs asking "What is your phone number?" And respond with their phone number. Using WB write two possible ways of answering. Try to elicit the words from the students. My phone number is......... It is......... It's........... Sorry I don't have one.
Have the students read speaking exercise 1 silently. Play conversation 2/3 times (1.19) One pair of students will read the conversation out loud. Drill the sentences with the whole class. Emphasize the contractions to make it sound more natural.
Roleplay exercise Divide class in to groups ( group size will be dependant on the amount of students attending) Try to separate the class in to groups that are not the sts sitting next to them. Demo card game to students: Show the four groups of cards. Three groups of phone numbers: work, home, mobile and one set of picture cards. Each group will get one pile of each of the four groups. The three piles of telephone cards will be placed face down on the table. The student will chose a picture card and then ask their partner the question according to the picture eg. "What is your mobile number?". I will chose a card from the appropriate number pile and give my number. Some of the cards will be blank so the answer will be " Sorry, I don't have one." The students will now do the activity taking turns asking and answering questions until all the cards have been used.
