Key and difficult points:
To express their opinion and ideas fluently about how to learn English.
To improve students’ awareness of taking part in different kinds of class activities.
Step 1: Warming-up
2. Invite students to watch an English video chosen from American dreams in China, in which the main character is delivering an English speech. He speaks English fluently and confidently. Encourage students to talk about the reason why he speaks English so well.
Step 2: Pre-speaking
Read the dialogue for students and ask them to answer two questions:
Q1: How can you improve your English? (We can watch TV programs on CCTV 9.)
Q2: Where can you read books, newspapers or magazines? (At the library.)
Invite several students to share their ideas. Conclude some useful expressions for students.
Step 3: While-speaking
Five minutes for students to make a new conversation about how to improve English. Remind students to pay attention to their pronunciation and intonation.
Step 4: Post-speaking
Invite some students to share their conversation in front of the class. Give some positive evaluations to help them build confidence in speaking English.
Step 5: Summary and homework
Summary: invite a student to be a little teacher and summarize today’s lesson. Ask students to learn English by using proper and reasonable methods.
Homework: ask students to learn an English song and share next class.
