Give Ss the quiz from page 143. Ss do the quiz alone. Then work in pairs in order to compare answers and ask each other why they choosed option a,b or c.
Ss in pairs or groups discuss and come up with descriptors for the scores in ex 4.Take some FB.
In groups of 3, Ss arrange the cards in circle obn their desks with the description face up. Ss throw the dice and move colckwise round the cards.They have to guess the word & turn the card over to see if it is correct. They continue doing this in turns. So sometimes the card they will land on a word face up. And guess the definition. Let them play for awhile and collect the cards. Do a quick check by calling out definitions or the words.
