While they are completing the tasks in the student’s book, walk around the class and
monitor the activity and distribute the maps to the students. Tell them it is for later when
they finish the present activity. Divide the students in pairs (use the current sitting
situation). The new activity is called How Can I Get There? Tell the students they must
not show each other their maps. They must ask for and give directions to their partner e.g.
How can I get to the tourist information office? Cross the Bridge Street and turn right.
The tourist information office is on the right.
Tell them to label the buildings on their map when they find out what they are. Walk,
monitor the conversations and make sure they are using the structures correctly, help if it
is needed. Before they start ask them if they need any help with the vocabulary
concerning giving instructions (down/up the street, across the river, cross the bridge).
Make sure you elicit this vocabulary from them before they start. If they complete the
task early use Talk about it. Refer them back to the student’s book and ask them to read
the questions. Divide them in groups to answer the questions and discuss the answers.
The groups share their ideas with the class.
