Step 1. Greetings

Greet the whole class as usual.

Ask the students to look at some photographs on the screen and guess what kind of job they do and what are their personalities. My purpose: Arouse the students’ interest of study; Bring in our subject: Personalities and Jobs.

Step 4. Key words

Key words are very important before the students do the listening. And most of them are new words. I show them on the screen. Let the students work in groups to get their meanings. Read them and do some exercises individually. And then ask some of them to check the answers.

During this step, I use group work and individual work method. My purpose: Remove the barriers in the listening; Increase the students’ confidence of listening.

Key words:

Step 5. Listening Strategies Identifying opinions:

? Before you listen, try to imagine the people and what kind of things they might say. ? While you listen, write down important words.

? After you listen, look for synonyms of the words in the questions.

I show them on the screen. Read and learn them. They are very useful in the listening.

Step 6. Listening

Listen to a class discussion (two times) and answer the questions on the screen. Use the Listening Strategies to help you. Then, let the students work in groups to discuss the answers and ask some of them to check the answers. At last, listen to the discussion again. Try to get more information in the listening.

During this step, I use group work method, discussion method and question-and-answer activity teaching method. My purposes: Train the students’ ability of listening and cooperation..


1. Which student believes that people who work with computers are not athletic but they have to

be creative?

2. What characteristics do the students think that tour guides should have?

3. Li Liang said,”They must never give up.” Which job is he talking about here? 4. What is Li Liang’s opinion about people who wish to be nurses? 5. Who wants to be a doctor?

Step 7. Discussion

What job do you want to do? What characteristics do you have? Is the job you want is fit for you? Why or why not?

I show the questions on the screen and let the students discuss them freely. Use free discussion method to train their speaking ability and let them know themselves better.

Step 8. Homework

Write a short passage to present your personalities and a suitable job for you

My purpose: I mean to give them emotional education. Don’t just have a job you want. Try to know what job is fit for you.
