Teacher/Pupils’ Activities Teacher asks pupils if they have been invited to any occasions such as a birthday party or breakfast/lunch/tea time/dinner treat and what foods are offered to them in those occasions. Teacher divides pupils into 5 groups. Pupils have to write 5 types of food offered in the specific occasions given on the mahjong paper. Teacher distributes a dialogue about an invitation to lunch. Teacher asks the pupils to read silently and tell what the conversation is all about. Teacher explains the function of - Would you like….? - Please have…. - Please come… in the dialogue. (to invite and to offer food/drinks) Teacher shows examples of accepting and declining the invitation and offer by using sentence cards. e.g. Yes, I would love to. (to accept) Yes, please. (to accept) I’m sorry, I can’t. I’ve just had supper. (give reason) (to decline) No, thank you. (to decline) Teacher repeats the target dialogue chorally and individually. Target structure: Would you like…? T : Would you like a sandwich? All pupils: Would you like a sandwich? T : A cup of tea All pupils: Would you like a cup of tea? (choral drill)
