Period 1: Speaking Warming Up and Pre-Reading
To talk about varieties of English
To discuss why do so many people speak English
I. Warming up
1. Warming up by answering a questionnaire
1). Tell the students they are going to answer a questionnaire about why they are learning English.
2). Write the words: Reasons for learning a foreign language on the center of the board:
3). Ask the students to suggest as many reasons as they can think of, for example, for work, as a hobby, to learn about other people, to travel, to read literature in the original, to read research papers, to meet foreigners, to surf the Internet, to pass exams, etc. Write their suggestions on the board as they make them.
4). Divide the class into pairs.
5). Give out each student one questionnaire paper.
6). Explain the task. The students must question each other about their language learning needs (or motivations). Tell them that you are going to take in the questionnaires at the end, and that you’d like them to make clear notes. It works better if the two partners swap tasks (questions and answers) after each section of the questionnaire. If they wait till the end to swap, one student may use up all the time available.
7). When the task is finished, ask a couple of students to summarize their partners’ answers. (This may develop into a class discussion about language needs).
8). The students write five sentences on their feeling about learning English.

2. Answer these questions (Page 11)
Work in groups. Discuss the two questions and then ask two groups to report their answers to the class.
1). Do you think it matters what kind of English you learn? Why?
I don’t think so. Here are the reasons:
★Native speakers from different parts of the world have no difficulty in understanding each other despite the fact that they speak a bit differently.
★It is necessary for us to learn the narrow difference between different kinds of English if we hope to communicate fluently with native speakers of English from all over the world.
★Different kinds of English have the same language core. If you have got a good command of one kind, you will almost have no difficulty understanding another kind of English.
(Any persuasive and supporting reason the students give can be accepted.)
2) Why do you think people all over the world want to learn English?
The reasons why people all over the world want to learn English:
★With economy globalization, English has become the best bridge to serve the purpose of people all over the world communicating with one another.
★However, like all major languages in the world, English is always changing. In order to adjust to native speakers from different parts of the world, it is a must for people all over the world to learn English, whether in English speaking countries or in non-English speaking countries.
★Also, people from different parts of the world speak English with various accent and dialects, and people have to learn about the difference between different kinds of English in order to avoid misunderstanding while communicating.
