Mr Hamed, please

My main aim is listening for gist and details. Exercise ( a )is for setting the context, (b )is for listening for gist .l ask SS to check if their answers in ex.(a) true or false and if they were surprised ,but l think it is specific or can l consider these questions as ideas to the text?

Exercise (c ) is for listening for details. Is it right to add correcting the false ones to be detailed or l use the exercise as it is?

Thank you for asking these questions.

Yes these questions are predictions (ideas) they make before listening and then they listen to the gist to check their ideas. Specific information questions' answers would normally be only numbers or names or some specific - perhaps 1 or 2 word- answers.

As for your second question, yes it is very right and clever actually.

Your asking some very good questions which shows understnading and seeking it. Well done and keep it up 🙂

 

 

Thanks Mr Hamed

l have another question, please .

There are some difficult words in the questions that they will guess their answers in the context setting stage and l will teach them in the pre-teaching vocabulary stage..what shall l do if learners ask about the meaning during the task? Can l  tell them the meaning quickly by visuals or definitions to make them be able to answer the questions and clarify them in the next stage or ask them to guess the meaning ?

It is not preferable to ask them to guess and wait for later clarification because we do not ask them to do things they cannot or are not ready to do. So you could subtly write the words on the board for them while they read the questions or before they start the task ask them to read the questions first for any unknown words. These are only two things you could do in such a situation.
