Pre-listening task

T: Feelings can describe personality and people's character. But the shapes of a person's lips can say a lot about them. The 5000-year-old art of face reading is gaining popularity. So, take a look at the shape of someone's lips to find out about their personality.

While-listening task

T: Read the adjectives under each picture, then listen to the tape recorder and tick the adjectives you hear.


People with full lips are usually responsible. You can always trust them to do what you ask them to do. They are also decisive; they make decisions quickly. On the other hand, they tend to be rather bossy. They like telling other people what to do!

People who have a thin upper and full lower lip are energetic. They work very hard and like participating in a lot of activities. They are ambitious as well. People with thin lips are determined; they know what they want and they do all they can to get it.

People who have lips with down turning corners are very generous. They love giving things to other people and helping them.

Post-listening task

T: Look at these famous people's lips and talk about their characters. of these qualities are most important to you? Place them in the order of importance. Explain your choice.


While-watching task

T: Teachers are known to be honest, kind, respectful of people's feelings. I would like to draw your attention to the interview with the pupils from our school. Look, listen to it and answer the question:

What would you do to be a good teacher?

Possible answers:

SI: I would improve my knowledge of English.

S2: I would encourage my students and help them in learning English.

S3: I would do my best to teach young learners well.

S4: I would make my lessons interesting and informative.

S5: I would support my students and never forget that each student is a personality.

Post-watching task

T: And now, dear friends, would you describe the teacher of your dream?


SI: I strongly believe, that the teacher of my dream is a person who is devoted to the subject and students. S/he should be patient, because some students take much time to learn new material. An ideal teacher should be calm, tolerant, clever and well-bread. In conclusion, I should say that the real teacher should be a personality.


T: I am sure, you understand the fact, that your life is in your own hands. Nobody will come and say, "Take happiness, success and money!" It doesn't come true, until you achieve it by yourselves. Your wishes and ambitions will help you very much. You should reconstruct yourselves and never give up.
