  IV. Listening

T: Thank you for your ideas. Now we are going to listen to the dialogue of two girls about holidays in Malta. Your task is to write down the adjectives from these dialogues, which are used with the following nouns: Malta, hotel, weather, beaches, and food. (Slide 4)

(Students listen to the dialogue for the first time and work on the cards)

accommodation, the weather, sights you have visited, activities you have been doing, the food, any good or bad experience you have had. Organize your thoughts in paragraphs.  Use the plan.  (Slide 11)

Dear, Angie,

  I am writing to you from Madrid. My family and I came here on holidays ten days ago.

  We are staying in a fabulous hotel in the city centre. So far, the weather has been fine.

  We have been doing a lot of sightseeing. We have already been to the Plaza Monumental and a large city stadium. However, we haven’t been to the Prado Museum yet.

  I tried Paella yesterday at a restaurant. The food was delicious and the service was excellent. The only bad thing was that while we were enjoying our dessert, it started raining.

   Well, I promise to sent you some photos.

                                                                                                         Love,

                                                                                                         Vicky
