First, we will check the points in this lesson. Please repeat after me.
|1.||When you stop someone to ask for directions, try not to choose someone who looks like they are in a hurry.|
|2.||It is not always easy to understand perfectly when asking for directions. To increase your chances of understanding clearly, be sure to use your map and repeat the directions back to the local person helping you.|
We will read aloud the dialogue below. Once we are done, we will switch roles and read aloud the dialogue again. I will check your pronunciation and intonation.
(Please send the mispronounced words and expressions to your student.)
|A:||Excuse me. Sorry to bother you.|
|A:||Could you tell me how to get to the City Museum?|
|B:||Well, the museum is on Grant Avenue.|
|A:||Do you mind showing me where we are on this map?|
|B:||Hmmm… right here.|
|A:||How can I get to the museum from here? Is it not too far?|
|B:||No, I don’t think it’s within a walking distance. You can take the #6 bus.|
|A:||Thank you so much!|
|B:||No problem. Enjoy your trip!|
Now, let’s review some words and expressions from part B_2.
(Please review the mispronounced words and expressions from part B_2.)
Now, please answer the following questions. I will check if your sentences are complete and if the grammar is correct.
|1.||Do you often approach strangers and ask for directions when you travel?|
|2.||Does speaking to strangers make you feel uncomfortable?|
|3.||Do you think people feel annoyed when they are stopped by tourists?|
Now, let’s review your answers.
(Please review your student’s answers by sending the correct answers in complete sentences. After that, ask your student to read aloud his or her corrected answers.)
Let’s do a role play with the given situations.
Act out a scene in which one person is asking the way, and the other person has to give directions. You will ask the way.
(Your tutor will pretend to be the other person who gives directions.)
– Hello, excuse me ~
– Could you tell me how to get to ~
