T: What does world record mean?

S1 : Someone is the best.

S2: (stands up and starts to walk) Start. (stops walking) Stop.

T: That's correct. (repeating the starting and stopping actions) Start. Stop.

T: On the recording, you will hear a conversation about the two people on this chart. What are their names?

Look at the second column. What did Charles Smith do?

Demonstrate, or ask students to demonstrate, what a hiccup is and what a sneeze is. Say, Mr. Smith has a world record for hiccupping and Ms. Green has a world record for sneezing.

Now let's see how they got the world record.

Play the recording the first time. Students only listen.

Then say. Listen and look at the chart.

Fill in the information/or each person under the column that says how long.

Play the recording a second time. This time students write the words in the chart.
