Warmer (20-25 minutes) • To provide students with less challenging gist and specific information reading/listening tasks

I will show 3 pictures to the students and tell them that i will play a listening for them. I will ask them to listen carefully and try to focus on what these people say about their past experiences.I will explain that a guy named Andy will answer the question HAVE YOU HAD AN INJURY? I will play the first part of listening 1.2 and ask them to draw an arrow to complete the connection of Andy's story. I will play the rest of the recordings and ask them to do the same. I will stick pictures of the 3 people on the board. I will put them in pairs of two and ask them to note down any other details they can remember from the stories. I will ask them to stand up and write the information under the pictures. I will play the recording for the last time for them to check their notes.

Grammar review (10-12 minutes) • The students need to practice the past simple and the past continuous

I will draw two lines on the board to show that a longer action was interrupted by a shorter one.next to the longer line I will write I WAS WALKING ON THE STREET and next to the shorter one THE CAR HIT ME.I will describe the accident scene while using body language. I will ask the students to talk in pairs about what they were doing on august 17th ,1999 when the earthquake happened.
