How to teach a Speak Now lesson
Each lesson has five parts-Vocabulary,
Conversation, Language Booster, Listening or
Pronunciation, and Speak with Confidence.

Conversation with Additions
A
a

Lesson lntroduction

.

Read the lesson title as students follow along.
When applicable, have students answer the

question.

.

Point out the functions they will be studying and
explain them or reword them when necessary.

1 Vocabulary
The purpose of this section is to get students
thinking about the topic, activate their background
knowledge, and introduce them to vocabulary that
they will use during the lesson. To prepare the
students to use the vocabulary, preteach it. When the
vocabulary is unfamiliar to your students, present
it through visual aids (for example, photos), actions
and gestures, and rephrasing or English definitions.

.

.

.

Ifnecessary, have students use an English
Learners' dictionary, perhaps before coming to
class, to better understand not only the meanings
but also how to use the words.

Avoid giving students definitions in their first
language. Although doing so may initially save
time, students do not acquire the language as
thoroughly and will rely on their first language
rather than developing their English ability.
In addition, nuances in languages often vary,
creating additional complications as students
continue to use the language.
When you have time, further reinforce the
vo cabulary with p erson alization ( for example,
using the vocabulary in true sentences about
themselves).

.

viii

How to teach a Speok rVow lesson

from the Language Booster section.
Read the questions aloud. Ask students to
guess the answers by looking at the photos
or illustrations. Ask students questions about
details in the art.
Play the audio and select students to answer the
questions. If necessary, play the audio again.
Make sure students understand the answers to
the questions by asking concept questions or
reforming the question to check understanding.

B

By practicing the conversation, students become
more aware of functional language and more
comfortable with language in 'thunksl' This
prepares them for the Language Booster section and
will also help them notice the changes in Part C.

c

.

Tell students that they will listen to the
conversation again, but three sentences are on
the audio program which are not printed in
the book. Explain that they should write the
sentences they hear in the correct places.

.

Play the audio. Check answers. If necessary,
haye students compare answers in pairs, play the
audio again, and then check answers as a class.

.

After checking answers, play the audio again so
students can focus on th6 pronunciation and
intonation. Have students pay attention to the
words they did not understand before.

.

Have students practice the conversation at least

two times, once for each role.

2 Conversation
There are two types of lesson patterns for the
Conversation section. Some of the lessons follow the
"Conversation with Additions" model and others
follow the "Conversation with Expansions" model.
Teaching procedures for each lesson pattern are
outlined below Both conversations follow the same
procedure for Part A.

This section helps students become comfortable
with the topic and provides a model
conversation that uses the functional language

2

Conversation with Expansions

A
a

Follow the same procedure as Conversation with
Additions, Part A.

B
a

Practice the conversation in Part A.

a

Have students read the sentences below the
conversation. They should place the expansion


sentences in the conversation by writing the

number of the sentences in the correct place

within the conyersation.

Pronunciation
This section begins by helping students focus on
pronunciation or intonation through listening.
Students then practice the Pronunciation point.
Students may tend to focus on the content
and quickly forget to pay attention to their
pronunciation and intonation. If this happens,
briefly stop the class to remind students that they
are practicing both content and pronunciation
and then have them continue their practice.

Check answers as a class. Provide any language
support that inay be needed (for example,
pronunciation within the boxed text).
-L,ncourage students to read the new conversation

aloud. Students should practice both roles and
look at each other rather than their books.
Students who finish the activities quickly can
practice the conversation again with their own

PIay the audio, repeating as necessary.

substitutions.

3 Language Booster

Ask students obvious questions to make sure
they understand the point. For example, if you
are teaching stress in two-syllable words, first say
some words and ask students how many syllables

A

are in them.

This activity provides students with examples of the
target language. In almost every lesson, the language
includes both questions and responses. You may
want to have students practice the language (i.e.,
take turns asking and answering the questions)
before going on to Part B.

To give students more practice with the language,
include all class (choral), group, individual, and
substitution drills. This additional practice will
give students more confidence and reinforce the
pronunciation before they return to focusing
more on content.

B
a

This activity allows students to gain confidence
as they use the language in short exchanges. This
will provide them with the skills to make longer
dialogues later in the lesson.

In mixed ability

classes, have students

This activity allows students to use the target
language more freely as they accomplish defined
tasks.
Part A helps students prepare for their

with lower

English levels make some notes or sentence
starters before they do the activity. These aids
will help them to successfully complete the
activity and further increase their confidence.

After students have finished the activity, you may
want to randomly choose a few pairs and have
them role-play the conversations at the front of
the classroom.
After completing Part B, if students arent
confident with the language, have them continue
practicing until they have more confidence. They
can even make small substitutions to do this.

How to teach a review unit
Each review unit has two sections, English in Action,
which includes a video, and Speak Now, which gives

a

students the opportunity to role-play situations and
at the same time review the language of the previous

four lessons.

Explain what students must do (for example,
they should number photos in Part 1 or listen
and decide if their predictions were correct).
Play the video. Have students answer the

questions in pairs or as a class.

English in Action
Video is a great way to introduce longer
dialogues to students. The video makes the long
dialogues less threatening and helps students
understand language that otherwise might seem
overwhelming to them.

Part B asks students to listen for more details.

Using video is similar to teaching a listening or
reading activity-there is a pre-video activity.
On the English in Action page, this is called
Preview. After this, there are one or more "while
you watcti' activities. On the English in Action
page, this is Practice. These activities include
comprehension questions to check students'
understanding. These activities usually require
two or more viewings. Finally, there is a postvideo activity. On the English in Action page, this
is Discuss.

3 Discuss

Before class, make certain your classroom's
Internet connection, computer, and projector are
working properly.

The Discuss activity allows students to

After students finish their discussions, have them

2. A

range of different types of questions, prompts, and topics for speaking assessment.
Teachers may choose to use any one or more of these materials alone or in different combinations. The Scoring
Guidelines can be found on the Speak I'lou, Testing program CD-ROM.

asked on exams such as the TOEFL@, TOEIC@, or IELTSTM tests. As these materiats are preparatory in nature,
the rubrics do not reflect the tlpe of scoring or grading that a test-taker would receive in a standardized
testing situation.
