In this lesson, students learn the meaning, form and pronunciation of items of clothes and colours. This is followed by a controlled practice i.e. a matching exercise. Ss will also look at the use of "favorite" in questions and a semi-controlled speaking practice will be executed to prepare students for the final free speaking practice.
