Warmer/Lead-In (5-8 minutes) • To set lesson context and engage students

T will ask class difference between "old" and "new" using one old/one new phone example (or other realia) to get them to describe an object and discuss opposites. Ask students to share examples about something that's important to them, requiring them to describe it and have the class suggest what other things they can say about the Ss object. T writes adj. and sub. on WB while they call out

Pre-Exercise (5-8 minutes) • To introduce subjects, adjectives, and opposites

Drill (5-8 minutes) • To verify that the Ss understand simple syntax when including adjectives.

Reading/Listening (5-10 minutes) • To have Ss practice reading aloud and enhance listening comprehension

Have Ss read Exercise 4 text to themselves and ask for word definitions. After, play audio track and then have Ss complete 4a. Discuss answers first in groups, then with class.
