Teachers notes Aim: to recycle/activate vocabulary to talk about shops, to recycle/consolidate use of comparatives and superlatives (grammar point in current CB unit) Procedure 1 You may want to kick off by asking students about the shopping malls in the area: which are the biggest, best, which they go to most often, do they go with their parents or their friends, do they like going there, why/why not, what they do there. 2 Hand out the quiz to do in pairs or groups. Stress that they have to guess if youre into game shows could give it a betting twist they have to decide which answer to bet on. 3 Read out the text below to check answers. Alternatively give them it as a reading text, or yet another alternative, use it as a dictogloss/dictation. 4 [could be an alternative point at which to leasd the discussion in 1?] 5 Vocabulary brainstorming either ask them to complete the words given, or ask them first to brainstorm shop names and then compare their list with the one given. Depends how giving they are as a group. [This can be used as a simple listening/ a reading text / a dictogloss The worlds largest shopping mall is in Dubai in the United Arab Emirates.

It has six shops, a bank and a caf.] 6 Either brainstorm shops and other facilities in a mall and then check answers against the disemvowelled list on the handout or follow the procesure as given ask the students to complete the words on the handout and then add some more of their own. You may want to skip the discussion questions and go straight to the task 7 Use the task as is. You may want to ask each group to present their plans while the other students make a note of the facilities, and/or write a short description.
