where the coffee shop is?
Speak to the whole class

CINEMA
Gesture
Point!
Use body
language
Use facial
expressions
Use a stronger learner to help
(...even at higher levels).
Break
things
down
into
smaller
steps
Check that they
understand..
but…
Do you understand?
Tell me what you have to do.
You have to write three
sentences.
How many sentences do
you have to write?
What if I start and it’s
clear that one group
don’t understand what to
do?
What if I start and it’s
clear that half of the class
don’t understand what to
do?
When do you give the
hand-out? Before or after
the instructions?
A good question?
A better example…..
T: OK, can you all look at me? Now we’re going to
practise giving directions: turn right, turn…
Ls:Left
T: Yes, good. So h...
So, what do I do? I come out of my house, and I turn…

T: OK, Salmeh, let’s have an example. How do I get to the coffee shop from my house? ……….(Salmeh explains) T: Great – now turn to face your partner (gestures with hands and learners do this) Ask your partner ‘How can I get to the …..(cinema? garage)?’ (T shows this question, which has already been practised, on the board). Ask about 6 different places.

  34. 34. Ok, so if you all listen up a bit… we’re got this piece of paper and it’s got a kind of a map on it – there are a few roads and a variety of the kind of facilities you’d find in a town..Ok.. Right, uhmmm.. So what do you do? Ummm you’ll each have one and you need to work with a partner – I think it’s probably best if you turn your chairs around but you can do that in a minute if you like. Err Ok, so the thing to do is to imagine that you’re at your house in the top left hand corner and you want to go to the cinema, for example, so you need to ask your partner for the directions – like we were just practising before – turn right, keep going, that kind of thing. Take it in turns – off you go.
