Lead in (5-12 minutes) • to engage students and set context

First make sure they all have page 8. Ask students to look at the pictures and tell what they see. What is the verb for this? What is this action? (demonstrate talking on the phone) Drill that it is not talk in the phone or of the phone! Write it on the board. When they say yoga, tell them the verb we use with yoga is ''do''. Ask them If they know the woman's name. Yes it is here, her name is Agata. What does Agata want to do? Could you repeat that please? Here is the answer: She wants to do yoga. Hold your ear to show them you want to hear the same sentence from them. And ask the question to check if they remember or not. Show them the form. This is a F-O-R-M. What is it? What form is it? Is it for an English course?

Listening (10-15 minutes) • To get specific information

''Now please listen carefully''. Use gestures and intonation. Don't write, just sit back and listen. Later you will write. Play the recording. Now look at the form. You have one minute and I will play the conversation again. Explain MR, MRS, Miss, Ms. Write them on the board and also the explanations shortly. MR: for man MRS: Married woman Miss: unmarried woman and MS: we don't know married or unmarried. Explain name and surname. Tell them your own name and surname. Address-what is the address of the course? (it is here show them the right top of the form) Don't explain each category because they already know what it an address,postcode,telephone and e-mail. Those things are international and they are the same in the learners' first language. Nationality- Can you give me examples? If they can't, tell them : I am from Turkey. Turkey is my country. I am Turkish. This is my nationality. I speak Turkish, this is my language. So question: I am from the USA. Am I Americanish? HAHA I am A------, remain silent and let them complete the word. I speak (hand gesture) E----------. Perfect! I am from Germany, What nationality am I? Am I British? Allright, now I will play the conversation again and this time you will write, you will fill in the gaps in the form. Play the recording. Did you write? Check how they did and play the recording for the last time and pause after one or two gaps, let them tell it loud.

Vocabulary (10-20 minutes) • To practice letters, numbers, addresses

Write A,B,C ... on the board and ask them what are these? This is the English Alphabet. Teach them that every individual sound is called a letter. Repeat it a few times. Then show them we form the words from letters.Tell them that They all know the English alphabet very well. Write some abbreviations and ask them to spell. Like ; HD, TV, IP, DVD, HP, CNN, BBC.. They can add more. Separately write i and e and a to practice. Also write y,v,h and practice by pointing the letters, do it faster. Glue tag the addresses, numbers and postcodes randomly on the board. Ask you students to look at them and decide which is what. Then play the recording and once you play the first one pause and get them repeat it. If there is still time practice it with the whole class for the last time. E-mail and website addresses: Write and introduce dot and at. Put them in pairs very quickly and give each person a piece of paper. ask them to find out information from their partner. Give clear instructions by demonstrating.

Plan B-extras (board rush) (1-10 minutes) • To practice letters, numbers, addresses

More than 7 mins: Divide the students into two teams. Get some words from them and write them on the board. Give them the instructions. Get one st from each group and spell the word tell them to rush to the board and point the word. Less than 7 mins: Give them a small piece of paper, Spell a word and ask them to write and tell you what they've written. To revise things words can be; Japan, letter, yoga, number, and some of the students names to surprise them.
