Unit 2 Receiving a visitor
Good morning, my honorable judges. I’m very pleased to have an opportunity to talk about some of my teaching ideas.
My topic is “Receiving a visitor”taken from Unit 2 of Secretary English.
It is made up of six parts.
I. Analysis of the Teaching Material
It’s a reading and speaking lesson (45mins) which talks about receiving
It is also the second period of this Unit. This period plays an important role
in this Unit.
Students will get the information of how to do when receiving a visitor by
reading a short passage.
They also can learn some sentence structures which a secretary use to
offer greetings when receiving a visitor. What’s more,
they will use what they learn to make a role play. Through these tasks,
their listening, reading and speaking abilities will be greatly improved.
It is also the teaching emphasis of English teaching..
I deal with the teaching material in three steps:
1）reading: information of perfect action and behavior
2) conversation: fluent language
3) role play: put the knowledge they learned in the class to accomplish
the task of receiving a visitor

II. Analysis of the students
- My students are Grade One students majoring in secretary English in
a vocational school.
Most of them are girls, so they are quite outgoing and talkative,
they are willing to say something if they are asked. But they are poor
in basis language , they are too shy to open their mouths.
