T: OK, can you all look at me? Now we’re going to
practise giving directions: turn right, turn…
T: Yes, good. So here is a map. Can you see this? It’s a
town. Here is my house. I want to go to the cinema. It’s
here. (shows them)
So, what do I do? I come out of my house, and I turn…
T: And then at the crossroads, I turn..
T: Good – and go straight on. The cinema is on my..
T: OK, Salmeh, let’s have an example. How do I get to the
coffee shop from my house?
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.
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.
