To provide gist reading practice using a text about going out in London in the context of places in the town
Procedure (37-45 minutes)
The students are given HOs with names of the weekdays on. They need to line themselves according to the order of weekdays (the first in the row will be the holder of 'monday', the last one will be owner of 'sunday'). Then they write the weekdays on the WB in order. T may ask "What day is it today?", "What day is tomorrow?", "What is the weekend in Turkey?" etc.
The T uses weekdays written by the Sts on the WB to elicit places to go out. In order to elicit the TL the T says "On Sundays I go to cinema. What about you?" After the words are elicited the T checks the meaning with the help of CCQs and visuals.
The students read the text about 4 friends and the places they go to. They need to fill in the gaps by asking questions to each other in order to complete the text. The students mingle, then the teacher conducts WCFB.
The students look at the picture of two people taken from the video and guess in pairs who they are (collegues, friends, relatives etc.). Then the teacher provides silent watching to give the students more information on the video. This is followed by the WCFB.
The students are asked to listen and find out who those people are. After listening there is peer-checking. This is followed by the WCFB.
The students are given the table and asked to fulfill it. They watch video 1-2 times to complete the task. Then there is a peer check and the WCFB.
The students watch the video again and answer the questions. Then they discuss answers in groups (if time). This is followed by the snapping activity when the students in teams need to snap the right answer on the WB.
The students are given a HO. They fulfill the table with the personal information, leaving one day blank. The teacher recycles 'Would you like to...?' and presents some expressions used to accept and reject invitations. Then the students are supposed to mingle inviting each other to go out. The teacher monitors and writes mistakes on the WB. It is followed by the DEC and WCFB.
