I. Lead-in:

- Glad to see all!

- How are you?

- You look nice today. Did it take you much time to dress in the morning?


Society places great value оn appearance and most people care about how they look. Indeed, we often judge others by their appearance. However, there is danger of placing too much importance on how someone looks. People spend too much time and money on fashion. Should the way someone dresses be the most important thing in life? Do clothes say a lot about your character?

I think it will be useful to discuss some of the problems and try to understand if we should spend too much time and money on fashion.


II. Picture-based discussion:

1. Look at the pitures on the blackboard. (Слайд 2)

What do you think of the clothes the people in the photos are wearing?

2. Look at the pictures once again and let’s make a list of words to describe their emotions. (Слайд 3)


-outrageous

-eye-catching

-trendy

-eccenric

-strange

-colourful and joyful

-extraordinary

-cool


I think some of the following activities will help us discuss these problems:


3. Why do you think some people wear outrages clothes? (Cлайд 4)

Look through the list of the phrases that can be used to describe the pictures.


-to look superb

-to look like he is full of dollars

-to attract attention

-to look extraodinary

-to look for their status

-to stand out in crowd


4. People’s choice in clothes has always helped to give others an impression of who they are. Like a Rolls-Royce or a privite plane, fashion acts as a status symbol. Someone's appearance can give us useful information about that person. (Слайды 5,6,7,)

When we see a person wearing a suit, we suspect he is a professional. We can easily recognize an ambitious business executive in suit and tie, an elegantly dressed young business woman, punks or goths.

Do you agree with the statement that we can say a lot about a person by the clothes he/she wears?

V. After text activities (pair-work):

1. Work with a partner. Ask and answer the question in Ex. 2


VI. While reading activities:

Many people are obsessed with brand name clothing. (Cлайд 8)

They say they pay for high quality. Others believe that you only pay for the brand’s name and the product is no better than any others. I think some of the following activities will help us discuss these problems.

1. Look through the text and say what the text is about

2. Read the text and choose a, b, or с.


Designer brands aren’t for me!

Although I follow fashion, I hate the phrase ‘must-have’. If I read that Egg boots or Prada sunglasses are the latest ‘must-haves’, my immediate reaction is to think, ‘Why must I have them?’ Why should I fall for the designer’s manipulate tactics which are only intended to increase his bank balance at expense of mine?’

Designer brands, in general, are for people who are too insecure to trust their own tastes. These people decide that everything at Prada must be ‘cool’, so I you shop there, you can’t go wrong. I find it much more satisfying to pop into one of the cheap chain stores on the High Street and buy a copy of the designer’s clothes for a tenth of the price. OK, you have to use your skills to find the one garment in three that looks great. But it’s worth it! It’s like finding a piece of gold in a river. The find gives you immense satisfaction.

Which is why, as a survey done by a British banker said this week, young people with money are abandoning the designer shops and buying their clothes chain stores, second-hand shops and in markets. This is the best news I’ve heard all weeks. It means that young people have the confidence to trust their judgment. They are prepared to take risks to look individual and not mass- produced. That has always been my shopping philosophy. The exorbitant prices in designer shops leave me open mouthed. Even if I had the money, I would think of all the other things I could spend on it.


1. The writer thinks...

a fashion is ridiculous.

b Prada sunglasses are 'must-haves'.

с designers just want to make a lot of money.

2. she thinks people who buy designer brands...
a are ‘cool.'

b don't have good taste.

с are frightened of making a mistake.

3. She thinks...

a it's easy to find great, cheap clothes.

b you feel good if you find good, cheap clothes.

с the clothes in high street stores are better than designer clothes.

4. According to the bank survey, rich young people...

a now want to look different from each other.

b don't have as much money to spend as they used to.

с are now buying more designer clothes.

5. The writer...

A thinks the price of designer clothes is fair.

b thinks there are better things to spend her money on.

с would like to have the money to buy designer clothes.


VII. Group work.

1. It is important to follow fashion? Look through the list of the phrases that can be used to discuss the problem. (Слайд 9)

2. People spend too much time and money on fashion. The way someone dresses shouldn’ be the most important thing in life. It’s also a waste of money as fashion changes so quickly. Do you agree or disagree? Think of as many points for and against following fashion as possible.


VIII. Setting homework:

Write a ‘For and against’ essay on the topic using 200-250 words.

I agree that people spend too much time and money on fashion. The way someone dresses shouldn't be the most important thing in life. It's also a waste of money as fashion changes so quickly.

Paragraph plan

Paragraph 1: Introduction [state the topic and give opinion (not necessary to be a slave to fashion to look smart)]

Paragraph 2 Viewpoint 1 and reason (it is expen­sive to follow fashion - people get into debt trying to keep up)

Viewpoint 2 and reason (fashion followers give up their individuality for the sake of fashion - this gives wrong impression)

Viewpoint 3 and reason

Paragraph 3: 2 opposing viewpoint and reason (dressing fashionably gives the correct image for jobs - people who work with the public)

Paragraph 4: Conclusion. Balanced consideration/opinion (it is better to wear clothes which reflect one's personality rather than become a fashion slave)

IV. While listening activities:

1. Listen to Claire talking about fashion.

Listening script

Fashion victims

(I = Interviewer; С = Claire)

I: So Claire, how often do you buy clothes?

C: Well as often as possible, actually. I'm a bit of a shopaholic. I don't spend nearly as much time or money on my hair. And I rarely wear make-up. But, to me, clothes are a really important part of my appearance. For that reason I do buy a lot of clothes, yeah.

I: If you had more money would you rather buy lots of new clothes or a few expensive ones?

C: Well, I'm not sure really, erm the cost of clothes is not really important to me. I like something, I buy it. I mean I've bought second-hand clothes, I've bought designer clothes. So I'm not sure about that.

I: How would you describe the way you dress - your style?

C: I wouldn't say I follow fashion. Erm, I think I'm quite individual. I like to find clothes that no one else will have. However, I also like to be comfortable. I rarely wear high heels and I hate being hot, so this affects what I wear.

I: Do you have a favourite outfit?

C: Well I mean it changes from time to time. At the moment I've got a favourite pair of trousers that I seem to be wearing all the time, to everywhere, with everything. Erm, they're very versatile so I can wear them with trainers or high heels, erm different belts and tops. They can be smart or casual.

I: How aware are you of current fashion trends?

C: Not particularly. I mean, I don't watch fashion shows on TV and I don't read fashion magazines. So really my only exposure to fashion is when ... when I'm shopping or in the street when I see someone else wearing something. I think that fashion is quite hard to avoid. You're often not aware that you are aware.

I: Is there anything that you wouldn’t wear?

C: Erm, I try not to wear anything that doesn't flatter me. I very rarely wear short skirts because I hate my legs. I also nеver wear anything too revealing as that's just not my style.

I: Whose sense of fashion or style do you most admire?

C: I really admire Cameron Diaz. I think everybody does. She's always very confident in the way she dresses and I think that's the most important thing. That's what fashion's about - having your own self-confidence.

I: And what about for a man? What clothes do you like for a man?

C: Well, I think it comes down to what I don't like men wearing. So it's things like white socks, sandals and trousers that are too short. I don't like short-sleeved shirts with jeans as all the guys wear them and they just all look the same. I like a man to look good, but not as if he has tried really hard. That's not too much to ask for, is it?
