After such a brief warm-up they will continue with a listening part and anchoring it with a quick but dynamic activity, doing the "matching" exercise with flash cards in groups. This activity will also provide them with a new vocabulary. Then, the Ss will do the listening part that will be divided into 3 stages (pre-listening, listening for gist and detailed listening) and every stage will come up with an exercise. The lesson will be wrapped up with a speaking activity when the Ss will play the game "Find someone who".
