We will have a little clarification over the problems in the test, then they will have a controlled practice. At the end they will talk about lie trying to use the taught grammar.

Test 1 (8-12 minutes) • To gauge students' prior knowledge of the target language

Teacher will give students a test about adjective clause in which they have to put a connector in the write sentence. They can see the answer key at the bottom of the page. They will check their answers. Teacher will act towards the test result. If most of the students answer the questions wrong, teacher will clarify the grammar and answers, but if they answer correctly, they will be told to stand up and find a person who has answered correctly, ask them to explain the reason and check the statement if they understand it. They must ask everybody until they find a person to explain it to them. At the end, teacher will read the number and students should raise their hands if they have checked the sentence. If there is a sentence which nobody has checked, teacher will clarify it

Teach (8-12 minutes) • To clarify areas of the target language where students had difficulty in the first test stage

Teacher will put students in groups of three, give each group a sheet of paper containing a matching practice. They have to match each connector with the correct definition as fast as they can. The winner group will come to the board and do the same with the big ones. Then the teacher will ask students to explain the difficult parts in the class.

Test 2 (Controlled Practice) (5-7 minutes) • Check students' use of the target language again and compare with the first test

If teacher finds out students still have some difficulties in the target language and have enough time for the last stage, he will give them the second test to check understanding of the grammar. This exercise is similar to the first one. They will do it individually, look at the answer key and check them in pair.
