Once they are done, T will ask one student "Who is in the green part?" and another "Who is in the blue part?" *One student will read the green sentence and another will read the blue.

Activity 3 - Vocabulary Reinforcement and Speaking Practice (10-15 minutes) • To reinforce newly learned vocabulary through a fun quiz

T will put a blow-up of the quiz on the board and ask students to read each question while he completes the quiz.
