My favourite video game is GT6 I like romantic films I don't like ice-cream My favourite Turkish food is Iskender. Show sentences on the board and ask ss to decide which sentences are True and which are wrong.

question formation (10-10 minutes) • to check the ss level of english and whether ss can form questions in the present simple tense.

Look at the sentences on the board "My favourite team is Manchester United" and elicit other questions - you can ask - eg. who is your favourite player? Do you like Turkish teams? Ask ss to make an extra question for three / five of the statements about me. Encourage ss to ask Qs and give answers.

Give different strips of coloured paper to ss - (depending on numbers 3 / 4 colours) Ask ss to write three sentences - one sentences on one strip - about themselves - like / family / hobbies etc. Ask ss to crush up the three strips and throw them at me. Ask ss to come and collect a different coloured strip and find out who the strip belongs to by asking questions - encourage follow-on questions. NEED to demonstrate this with the whole class - maybe 2 times.
