EFFECTIVE ORAL SKILLS LESSON PLAN

 

Teaching Materials:

  • One copy of the text and one copy of the exercise sheet per student. Effective Oral Skills Lesson - (see below for printable lesson)
  • Board/flipchart.
  • Video camera and playback screen if available.

Procedure:

Teachers may either print out the lesson and have students read it themselves, or use the lesson for your own oral skills lesson.

Method:

1. Introduce the topic by explaining that good oral communications are an essential life and career skill.

2. Have the students read the text.

3. Ask them to look again at the list of typical interactions and give themselves a mark out of 10 for how confident they feel about each one.

4. Distribute the exercise sheet. Have them do the first exercise and check that they have the right answers (i. c, ii. a, iii. e, iv. b, v. d).

5. Have them work in groups of three or four. Each person is to make a brief self-introduction to their group, giving such information as their name, where they live, where they were born, composition of their family, job description, and main interests. The other members of the group should give feedback by marking out of ten (total) for clarity of information, liveliness of delivery, appropriate body language.

6. Role play. Explain that each language activity can be achieved by using the tactics described for each one. For example, to agree with somebody, we don’t just say “yes”, we summarize, offer to help and so forth.  Go through the six language activities on the sheet and elicit examples for each type of interaction. Have them work in pairs or groups of three or four. Ask them to look at the items and plan and execute a short role play for one of the language activities of their choice.
(NB if video filming is available this will be very useful to play back and let the students see their own performance).

7. Debrief by asking the groups to comment on how confident they felt in taking part in their chosen language activity. Discuss what they think they could improve upon.
