Introduction- Lead in
Have a copy of an Application form. Engage and arouse interest to build the context.

Learners will say ‘that is…’ or ‘this is…’ Get learners to answer my questions. I will ask the learners ‘what is this?’ I will try to elicit the word ‘form’ or ‘application’. Once established will ask the learners ‘who uses it?’ ‘why it’s used?’ Will engage with the learners and ask things like ‘have you ever filled one in?’ if yes ‘when?’ ‘what was the occasion?’ Listen to learners individually.

Monitor for pronunciation, accuracy and fluency

Presentation:
Building the context
Learners will listen and follow instructions. Get answers from the learners. Ask learners to:
First predict and then write down a list of at least 5 questions found on an application. Elicit the easy ones first, just single words i.e. Age, Name, Address etc Peer checking: get learners to check each other.

Compare the predictions with actual questions from the form. Then go through the entire application form briefly explaining each section.

Freer Writing Practice
Writing a cover letter applying for a course they really want to do. Learners will write a letter to a college expressing their interest on a particular course or subject they want to do. They will include the main contents of what a cover letter involves such as things like their name, address, date, etc and conclusion i.e yours sincerely and signature. I will explain to them that they have to write a cover letter to a college explaining they want to apply for a course they have always wanted to do, i.e. English ESOL. I will elicit what things they would include in a letter, i.e. the address where they are sending it, date, their details etc. and write them on the board. I will monitor for spelling, punctuation and correct format of the letter.
