Procedure (36-45 minutes)
Explaining the students the aim of the class that is mainly on vocabulary in the context of TV, and what we will be focusing on during while in class.
Since the subject is about TV, I will have the students use their time on speaking as a start, before the exercises. I will ask them some questions about TV and their TV habits, and let them be in pairs to talk about it for a while, to make sure that they know what they will be working on for the rest of the class. This will also let them be more comfortable while talking about the class' related subject.
After the speaking part, I will do the exercise 1a, on page 32, Face2Face Student's Book, and have the students categorize the words first by pairs, and then I will use the WB as a FB to make sure if the students got all the answers right. Then, I will have the students do the matching exercise about the TV related words, prepared by me.
As the next stage, on page 32, Face2Face Student's Book, students will do exercise 2, as in pairwork. They will discuss the questions and use the words in exercise 1a) in their answers.
Explaining what 'telly' and 'addict' is to the students and let them do exercise 3a) the quiz on student's book, Face2Face. First, they will do the exercise individually and then they will do the exercise as a pair work, to see if they are really a television addict. Then, the students will tell me their answers by the end of their discussion.
After the quiz, I will tell the students that they are going to listen to a woman, Jo, asking her flatmate, Toby the questions in the quiz. They will try to see if Toby is a 'telly addict or not?'. I will have the students listen to conversation, if/when needed.
