This stage prepares the ss to the listening giving the ss clearer idea, or discussion about the some details of the author eliciting the information from the ss. The ss may know the author from the previous session and talk about him or just guess randomly saying some facts about him.

If there are some problems among the ss to understand the question the teacher puts them in pairs to clarify the meaning of the questions together
