T will then show a skydiving photo and ask if any of the students has ever done it, and what they think about it.
T will go through the three choices in the first exercise with the class, Ask Ss to read quickly (skim) the text and decide which answer describes the author's attitude to skydiving.
T will go over exercise 2 clarifying that there is one factual mistake in each sentence. T will give them some time to do the exercise on their own without looking for the text. Then, T will ask them to compare their answers in pairs before sharing it with the entire class. Now, T will allow the students to do a longer and more detailed reading by looking to the text.
T asks Ss to work in pairs to check the text and find out one word that has the same meaning of definitions of in the handout given to them. T checks their feedback
