LESSON GOAL: Brief Transactional Talks

TG (Content Focus)
1. DURATION: 812 minutes
2. MAIN OBJECTIVE: Check
general understanding of
the text by identifying its
chronological sequence
(number 1); check students
capacity to find contextual
information that is not given,
but suggested in the text
(number 2).
3. HINTS:
3.1. Setting / Problem
Solving: Pictures 1 and 2/4.
Use Picture 1 for Activity 1.
Then use Pictures 2 or 4 for
Activity 2 (depending on the
number of students). Activity
2 is a new element in your
students repertoire. Help
them perceive the contextual
constraints of a dialogue
one line or word helps
predicting the others.
3.2. Correction Technique:
Activity 1In case of
disagreement, use the text as
a source.
Activity 2Use Rephrasing
to deal with inapropriateness
or mistakes. Youll probably
have to shape students
language production.
