What do we call the paper with questions for the interview? This questionnaire is not complete, please, fill in the blanks.” Ask the sts to fill in the blanks in HO 2 (Interview page), and check in pairs. Give sts the answer sheet for FB. Check if sts know what Youtube, Amazon and ipod are.

Get a student who finished early to write the answers on the board for FB “Ok, does everyone agree?”
Elicit the questions that can be asked for the questionnaires, drill the questions. Ask the students to interview two other sts and fill in the questionnaire for them. “Now, you will ask these questions to two other people. Write their name here, and their answers here.
