Hi there and welcome to Unit 4! The video for this unit is going to be a skills lesson, which will focus on the skill of reading.
What we want you to study here is the staging of the lesson, with each part – presentation, practice and production – focusing on something different.
Keep an eye out for the interactions between the teacher and the learners and try to think about how these fit in with the stage and the pacing of the lesson.
Again, we recommend viewing the video more than once, to make sure you catch all the little details. Make notes on the activities and methodology used by the teacher too.
You know what to do, now let’s watch this unit’s lesson video.

Article text
The United Kingdom, a place where people drink copious amounts of tea and discuss the weather at every opportunity. A place where ‘raining cats and dogs’ can be heard most days and where queueing is almost classed as a national sport.
Many people see the UK as a place full of beer, football and awful weather. A place where people eat fish and chips every night, roast dinners on Sundays and not much else. A place where people spend all their free time in the pub, but are always at home in the afternoon to have traditional afternoon tea. A place where the most important words in the English language are please, thank you ,sorry and excuse me, these words are repeated a hundred times or more in just one morning!
And finally, a place full of eccentrics, strange people who like to take part in activities such as cheese rolling, bog snorkelling and welly wanging.

Thinking about the first video, imagine this had been said:
(T) Ok, can we have a volunteer to pick the first topic?
(S) Me, I’ll do it!
(T) Ok, the lesson has started, shall I give you a fine for shouting out?
(S) No! Sorry
(T) Ok, I’ll let you off as we haven’t started discussing our topics yet. OK, which topic do you choose?
The teacher let the first rule breaker off, and gave a reason for doing that. What negative effect do you think this could have on the rest of the lesson when fines are dished out? Please briefly explain your reason.
