Using the images provided on page 80 of the SB, I elicit the vocabulary related to the city and coutry.
(Exercise 4 on page 80 of SB) SS to be divided into 2 groups - one going for a walk in the city, the other one in the country. Explain and demonstrate the game carefully Depending on how the game progresses, we will attempt to do 2-3 runs.
Demonstrate / elicit with a slide. How can two sentence be joined to enhance writing? Brief revision of 'which' where' and 'who'.
Handout, ex. 2 (from page 121 of SB) SS to work alone and check in pairs; answer key provided - look for key words; demonstrate with (1): River Thames: is it a thing or a place or a person? (in case I am short of time, we may complete the entire exercise in class)
Context: SS to think of their hometown or a town, village or city they like very much - imagine you live there and want to invite your best friend to visit - write a letter to your best friend, telling him or her about the place and why it is a good idea to visit - Paragraph 1: What's the name? Where is it? Is it big/small? - Paragraph 2: What is it famous for? / What is special about it? / What can visitors do? - Paragraph 3: Does it have any problems? - Paragraph 4: What do you like best about it?
Depending on timing, SS can go around the class room and read a few of the letters. Otherwise, SS can volunteer to tell the class about the place they wrote about. Final feedback.
