Warmer (5-6 minutes) • To engage students and set a context

T writes the verbs (like, have, live, work and study) on the board. T asks sts what words can be added, and shows an example of what words can be added to the verbs (children, in a bank, English). T asks sts to think in pairs what other words they can add, and write them down. After 2 minutes T elicits their replies on to the WB.

Vocabulary work (12-15 minutes) • To present collocations with the verbs live/have/work/study

T shows the handout and explains that the Sts should match the phrases in the box to the verbs. T models the exercise by doing the example with letter b ('like dancing'). T divides the sts into pairs and gives out the handout. After the sts are done, T calls out the students one by one and asks them to stick the cards with the words from the exercise to the verbs written on the board. T does error correction, checks understanding (center/company). T points out the difference between 'house' and 'home', and practices pronunciation of WORK, COMPANY, OFFICE, LANGUAGES.

What's his name? Where does he live?'). T writes 'Cecilia, Carlos, Diego' on the WB. T sets the task for listening and reading - excercise 1a and asks the sts to read the text while listening to it. ('Who are Cecilia, Carlos and Diego? Listen and read the text once and just answer these three questions! ') T plays the recording 4.2 T elicits answers on the WB to provide the FB.

Reading (8-10 minutes) • To provide practice in reading for details
