Listening Dialogue: Goanimate: listening dialogue at the beginning of the lesson will be a good warming
activity before jumping to speaking activities. This activity is also an example of conversation about body parts.
Speaking about Dialogue: This activity is useful for preparing students to the main speaking activities. During

Explanation regarding to the implementation of the plan
The teacher comes to the class, greets the students and warms them to the lesson. In order to further warming,
he introduces a dialogue about body parts and the students listen to the dialogue. At the end of the listening,
they talk about dialogue and its subject matter. Teacher asks students what the interesting parts, words and
lexical items within the lesson. After they talk for a while, the teacher determines the problematic words and
applies the Human Computer Activity for several students. This activity is bound to students. Teacher comes at
the back of a student and wants him to pronounce the problematic word. Student pronounces and teacher
repeats. This continues until student decides to stop.
The teacher gives instructions about flashcards and distributes them. The students work with pairs. They will
speak with each other in accord with the flashcards. They will command each other by using phrases. After that
the teacher chooses one pair and wants them to perform in front of the class.
The teacher gives 15 minutes break. After the break teacher comes and greets students again. Then he gives
instructions about role cards and distributes them. The students work with groups and will act out their
performance in front of the class. The teacher observes students during both group work and acting out activity.
He takes notes about pronunciation mistakes and kindly corrects them after students performance. He
announces that he is going to announce their grades the following week.
Finally, the teacher wants students to attend an online survey about lesson. Students fill the survey by thinking
critically about their learning. At the end of the lesson, teacher reminds them to repeat the lexical items which
they learn and they can use in any authentic conversation. He announces that: thanks to their well-performance
during the lesson there will not be any homework.
