PROCEDURE

I. SETTING THE RAPPORT

Quotation: Knowing is not enough, we must apply. Willing is not enough, we must do. (Goethe)

Discussion with students.

II. WARMING-UP

Guessing the topic of the lesson

A ship with people of different nationalities landed on an uninhabited island. It was interesting how people behaved. The Germans were drilling the natives into the army. The Americans opened a shop and a car company. The Australians started the racing competition. The French opened a restaurant. The Italians were sponsoring a show. And two Englishmen were still standing around waiting to be introduced. What do you think the Ukrainians would do?

T: Split into groups and think for 20 seconds. How do we call this phenomenon when we think about somebody or something, e.g. nationalities, and we think that we know something about it.

Stereotype

Where can I find stereotypes: people (prisoner, professor), home (way of life),  family, job.

What is actually a stereotype?

Stereotype — the usual and well-known idea of w! type of person is like, which is probably not correct (wro mistaken).

Do you follow stereotypes? Why (not)? What is important to you for the nearest 10 (education + job). Let's try to break some stereotypes concerning jobs.

What is it? Give your ideas, examples.

Example:

When a woman works as a mechanic etc.

- What skills or qualities do people need to do these jobs successfully? Split into pairs, choose the job, and think. (Students' ideas. Write required qualities on the poster.)

- Which of the jobs are more suitable for women (men); difficult/easy for both men and women.

III. LISTENING

T: You're going to hear Darren Filkins interviewing Rachel Anderson, a football agent. After listening you are to decide who makes statements: Darren, Rachel or nobody?

TAPESCRIPT

Darren Filkins: Rachel Anderson is Britain's only female football agent. She's also a former journalist who knows the power of the press. Rachel, welcome to the studio today.

Rachel Anderson: Hi, Darren. It's good to be here.

Darren: So, Rachel, I've been dying to ask you. How did you become a football agent?

Rachel: As a matter of fact, I was doing an aerobics course jand we were talking about how the reporters can give players I a hard time, even though they're good players and how some players couldn't really deal with the press very well. Anyway, it turned out that footballer Julian Dicks's wife was in the class and she said I was right. She asked me for some advice and pointed out that women were often more successful at handling the press tactfully than men, and, well...

Darren: So it was quite by accident, really. Things just took off from there!

Rachel: That's right. They both sort of challenged me to be his agent for a year.

Darren: And what does a football agent actually do? I suspect it's not a nine to five job!

Rachel: As a matter of fact, from about seven in the morning to sometimes eleven at night I talk to loads of people. If a player is happy at a club, I can make their career more successful by getting them sponsorship. If they're unhappy, I try to find them another club to play for. I always encourage players to have an alternative career — just in case they're injured. It makes sense.

Darren: And, if it's not a rude question, how much do you earn?

Rachel: Anything between twenty-five thousand and a hundred thousand pounds a year, if I 'm lucky!

Darren: That sounds like an awful lot of money to me!

Rachel: It does — but you have to remember that I pay all my expenses myself. That includes flights, for example. And I pay five people to work for me on a part-time basis, you know. So, believe me, it's nowhere near as much as it sounds!

Darren: True but even so. It's more than most people make in a year! Urn... have you always liked football?

Rachel: Not at all. My family were all rugby people! But I went to matches with friends and it sort of grew from that!

Darren: But you have played the game yourself, haven't you?

Rachel: Good heavens — not me! I've got better things to do with my time!

Darren: Would you like to see more women working in football?

Rachel: If they're good enough, yes. But like everything else, success depends on how good you are — rather than on whether you're male or female!

Darren: And what does your family think of your career? They must be delighted. It must give them a lot of street creed to have someone in the family who knows so many famous footballers!

Rachel: I think you're probably right there!

Darren: Rachel thanks for joining us in the studio today.

IV. PRACTICE

- To By out of the head;

- To keep one's word;

- To fall silent;

- To put one's foot in one's mouth;

- To Utter with money.

V. SUMMING-UP

T: Can I say that the best way to be successful is to have a good job and money (even if you have to break the stereotype)?

Listen to the song and say what is another quickest way to be rich for a singer. Think about the title of the song.

ABBA «MONEY, MONEY, MONEY...»

I work all night, I work all day,

To pay the bills I have to pay.

Ain't it sad?

And still there never seems to be

A single penny left for me.

That's too bad.

In my dreams I have a plan —

If I got me a wealthy man,

I wouldn't have to work at all,

I'd fool around and have a ball...

Money, money, money,

Must be funny

In the rich man's world.

Money, money, money,

Always sunny

In the rich man's world.

Aha-ahaaa

All the things I could do,

If I had a little money,

It's a rich man's world.

A man like that is hard to find

But I can't get him off my mind

Ain't it sad?

And if he happens to be free,

I bet he wouldn't fancy me.

That's too bad.

So I must leave, I'll have to go

To Las Vegas or Monaco

And win a fortune in a game,

My life will never be the same...

Money, money, money

Must be funny

In the rich man's world.

Money, money, money

Always sunny

In the rich man's world

Aha-ahaaa

All the things I could do

If I had a little money,

It's a rich man's world.

Money, money, money

Must be funny

In the rich man's world.

Money, money, money,

Always sunny

In the rich man's world.

Aha-ahaaa

All the things I could do

If I had a little money,

It's a rich man's world.

It's a rich man's world.

T: In the end, I'd like to thank everybody for participating and being active in the lesson.
