The class is going to watch a video based on "Optimism & Pessimism" in order to get the idea of the lesson.
Speaking They will work in pairs talking about "Are most people optimistic or pessimistic?" after that they are suppose to read the text quickly(skimming) and find out whether they were right or wrong. Then they have to talk in pairs and decide whether they consider themselves as pessimistic person or an optimistic person.
The class will be divided into two groups A & B. They will read about two people who answer the question "what are you optimistic about?". Then in their group they are going to check their answers.
They will change their partners and they will tell each other about the person they read about.
The students will try to match the vocabularies and the definitions which I give them in their pairs or groups.
They will discuss in pairs or small groups to answer this question "What idea do both answers have in common?"
