T will hand out the reading text and a folded paper in which there are 2 questions for the gist reading task. T will tell them "Don't worry about the unknown vocabulary, just answer the questions." Ss will answer the questions individiually by skimming the text and then check their answers in pairs. Feedback: T will elicit a few ideas for each question.
T will hand out a paper in which there are the words and pictures. Ss will match the words with the correct picture individually. Feedback: Check the answers in pairs. One student will come the WB and write his or her answers and then whole class elicit (Drill some pronunciation) If Ss are not clarified enough, T will do some clarification.

T will regroup the Ss (3-4 students in each group) and will hand out a paper in which there are 4 personal questions related to the context. While Ss are discussing their opinions T will monitor them. Feedback: Elicit some ideas from the groups. Do some error correction on the WB if you hear while monitoring.
