Semi-controlled practice (5-10 minutes) • To provide students with an opportunity to practice vocabulary of personal possessions

Put students into groups. Ask students to look in their bag or purse and take 1 or 2 things out to share with their group. If they don't have a bag or purse they can point out an item they are wearing or maybe have with them. Go around the class and take note of any difficult vocabulary.

Controlled listening practice (10-15 minutes) • Get the students to listen for specific information in 3 conversations

Explain the listening task clearly - Students will listen to three different conversations between two housemates Mark and Lee. In each conversation Lee is looking for something, listen carefully to each conversation and write on the HO what he is looking for. Give the HO AFTER the instructions. Play recording, repeat if necessary. Write answers on WB. Listen again and match the words in the box to the letters A-C. Have 3 students write answers on WB.

Test TL (7-10 minutes) • Test students memory of TL

Have students write the name of the item underneath the picture on the handout. Peer check for earlier finishers. WRITE NUMBERS ON WB Have the students write the answers on the WB next to the appropriate number.
