practice vocabulary regarding job-hunting; reading for gist and also for specific information (skimming and scanning)
to present and practice vocabulary related to job-hunting
Procedure (33-46 minutes)
I will ask the Ss to think of their own jobs or two people they know with jobs; Ss then work in pairs and share information about their jobs or the people; Ss also decide whose job is more interesting and why; then Ill ask the Ss to share their answers with the WC.
I will give the Ss slips of paper with the job-hunting phrases on them and the slips with their definitions to be matched by them in groups. Ill set time limit for this activity.
I will write three phrases on WB: I don't have a job I'm looking for a job I have a job, Ill draw happy, sad and neutral faces next to each phrase. and ask the Ss to come to the board and stick the paper slips they have under the right category.
Ill ask the Ss to order the phrases in 1a in pairs. Ill tell them there is more than one possible order.
Ill focus the Ss on photos A and B on page 22 and ask them what the people are doing; Ill ask them to read and match the letters to the photos; then I will set a time limit of 1-2 minutes to motivate them for skim reading.
I will chest the HO and ask Ss to do exercise 3 on page 22 and decide in groups whether those statements are correct and change the incorrect ones, then the answers will be checked in WC.
I will ask the Ss to discuss in pairs what are other ways of finding a job and/or how to write a CV; then Ill ask some couples to report their discussion to the WC.
