Divide Ss into pairs: they should ask each other do they ever sing and where. Then WC feedback.
T tells Ss that they are going to listen to an interview with a director of a singing school and a student who did a course there. As they will speak they will discuss these topics (Ex 5b p 55) Now, with your partner, please read the sentences and decide, if you think they are True (T) or False (F). Put the appropriate letter next to each sentences. ICQs!
