1 Task 2 : Listening 1. A teacher used a dialogue for listening. Below, she describes what she did and how well it worked : “ I told the class to close their books and listen, and I read the dialogue twice. Then I asked the questions. But they couldn’t answer most of them. So I told them to open their books, and we read the dialogue together. Then they seemed to find it quite easy. They couldn’t understand it from just listening – it was too difficult for them”. What could the T do to help the Ss to listen ? Discuss your answer with your group.
2 Task 2 : Listening 2. Read this story and decide at which points you could stop and ask students to make predictions. Once there was a boy called Ali, a poor fisherman’s son. As he was going home one evening, he saw an old man lying by the side of the road, seriously ill. The boy was very kind, and he helped the old man to the nearest hospital. The old man thanked the boy and asked him for his name and address. The Boy was ashamed to admit that his father was a poor fisherman, so he said, “My name is Mustafa and my father is a teacher”. A few days later, the old man died in The hospital, and left all his money to “Mustafa, a local teacher’s son who helped me in my hour of need”. Of course, because Ali had lied, he did not receive any of The old man’s money. Mark 5 places in the story where you could stop and ask Ss to predict what will happen next. What questions would you ask each time ?
3 3. Homework : Think of a story of your own ( it can be any kind of story, real or imaginary). Decide where you will pause and prepare questions to ask what will happen next, after each pause.
