In this lesson, Ss look at new vocabulary dealing with free time activities. Ss will first review adverbs and simple present tense accompanied with new and old vocabulary, which will then be used in some exercises that will further drill these points. Following, Ss will be introduced to consonant-vowel linking with a subsequent exercise. Finally, Ss will have an exercise that will test their knowledge of positive and negative simple present tense.

We don't add - or -es to the infinitive. "He doesn't like..." not "He doesn't likes..." For B) T emphasizes we don't use "doesn't" in negative sentences with he/she it. We use "don't" in negative sentences with "I, you, we,they."
