The Way to London Sights
Organization moment. (1 min)
Good evening, girls and boys! I’m glad to see you! Say “hello” to each other and ask “How are you?” Thank you. Today here at European Language School we will make a wonderful travel to the World of English.
The theme and the aim of the lesson - brainstorming. (2 min)
Look at the screen now, you can see here different pictures and phrases. How do you think what we are speaking today about?
You are quite right. We are speaking about “The Way to London Sights”.
Phonetic exercises. (2 min)
But before we will travel to London let’s remember some English sounds. Look at the screen, you can see here a short poem. Listen to me, please.
Don’t go home alone
How lonely the road is.
Now all together repeat the each line after me. ____, can you read aloud? Thank you. Can you read it in a whisper? Who can try to read it as quick as possible?
Speech exercises – the warming-up activity (front-face questions). (5 min)
I’m going to take you these papers (See Appendix 1). Don’t look at it. Wait until everybody is ready. Don’t read, please. Ok, I’m going to play some music. What you have to do is to write your name here in the lines and pass it to the next person very quick because the music can stop. You have to finish before the music stops, ok? Write your name and pass it to the right to the next person.
Now you are going round the class asking people quick questions. You have 1 question as an example. So №1 is Alisa. You have to go to Alisa and ask her: Do you go to school every day? So, you complete the information. You must talk with everybody here. Look at the person and ask the question. Do you get that? Please, stand up and look for the person to find out the information.
What do you think was interesting about your classmates’ information? What did you find?
New prepositions. (7 min)
Every year you go to different countries and meet people. They can ask you to explain the way somewhere or you have to ask somebody how to get somewhere. That’s why it’s so important to know how to do it. Let’s watch the video. (VIDEO – Authentic materials) 
You see that to do it in a proper way you should remember some useful phrases. Look at the screen, please. Repeat after the speaker… Do you understand the meaning of all phrases?
Let’s practise. I’m giving you sheet of papers. Complete the dialogues with appropriate phrase from the list. (ex. 4 p. 18 see Appendix 2)
Physical exercises. (3 min)
I think you’re a little bit tired. Let’s relax. We will listen to a song and play a game. Stand up, please. It is called “My mirror”. One of you should repeat ALL the actions of the other. Don’t forget to change your role! Ready? Start! (MUSIC) 
Activation of dialogue speech (work in pairs). (15 min.)
Now let’s listen to a dialogue and try to understand what it is about (ex.15, p.54). Then you are to discuss the content in small groups of 3 and try to formulate the content in ONE sentence.
You see that it’s necessary to follow a plan when you are going to ask the information. Let’s make a short plan. Don’t forget to be polite. So, what shall we do first?
Greet the person.
Ask the information (destination)
Clarify or specify.
Thank and say good-bye.
Now let’s see which phrases can be used… (see Appendix 3) Look them through! Do you have any difficulties?
Repeat some phrases after me.
Now look at the maps of the center of London (realia – see Appendix 4). You have them on your desks. You will work in pairs. Prepare a short dialogue. You must ask for help and explain the way to different places (each pair has a different task) and then dramatize it.
One more point – I have a wonderful sack with different things. Don’t look into it, take one and use it in your dramatics. You have 7 minutes.
From St. Paul’s Cathedral to Tower of London
From Buckingham Palace to Trafalgar Square
From Tower Bridge to Bank of London
From Buckingham Palace to Peter Pan Statue
Development of reading skills (work in groups). (3 min)
And your last task for today is ex.3 p.48 (see Appendix 5). You should read the instructions, follow them, draw your rout and then tell me where you are at the end of your way. Work in groups of three, please. You can get 1 point for being correct and 1 point for the quicker answer. The quickest team will get sweet prizes.
Reflection. Ending of the lesson. (3 min)
Thank you for your work today. You work really hard. Look at the table, you have so called “colour light signals”. “GREEN” – if you feel comfortable and learn much useful information, “RED” – if you feel depressed, upset, frightened. You also can draw your palm and write down on each finger how do you feel today and why? (Use the following phrases on the board…)
Look at the screen, your home task is to learn useful phrases by heart and be ready to tell me the way from your house to School.
