4. How to use : This is for skimming and scanning practice using real subway timetables in Seoul and London respectively. The first one is from Seoul station to Incheon Airport and the other is to South hylton. To use these authentic materials, first give learners enough time to look through each table. Second, ask skimming questions for overall contents or general ideas. And then, go into the table deeply and ask scanning questions for specific information. Lastly, give a task that needs the information on the two timetables.

a. Pre-Reading :  Ask students experience of  taking subways abroad and share the ideas to get them familiarized with the materials and topic.

b. While-Reading :

1. Make them look at the two timetables quickly and ask students questions for skimming skills. Here are the examples below.

[Guided Questions for Skimming Skills]

– Where does the subway in Seoul go to?

– Where dose the underground in London go to?

–  How many station does the underground in London stop at?

–  Where does the subway in Seoul depart?

– How many colors that describe certain types of trains can you find in Seoul?

2. Let students complete a chart for understanding specific details of both timetables. The questions would be like this below.

[Specific Questions for Scanning Skills]

– What does the blue color stand for in Seoul subway timetable?

– What time should you take the last underground to Sunderland on Sunday?
