Allow them to discuss this alone in their groups as I walk around showing the HO closer to them. Repeat the phrase "keeping in touch" twice. Let them think about it for half a minute. Then ask students what they belive this phrase means.
Explain to the students they are going to listen to two conversations. Ask them to listen carefully. Then in groups discuss with each other what methods of communication are talked about and what the peoples thoughts are of them.
Get the students to listen to the conversations again. Explain to them this time they are going to answer true/false questions on each conversation. After they have completed this task. Move the students swiftly on to exercise 4. Regroup them by this point so they can share ideas with new students.
