In this lesson SS will learn about modifiers. The T gives examples and uses adjectives to draws students' attentions to the degree of modifiers. SS will learn the grammar form and then, it will be followed by a controlled activity. As freer practice, SS will learn about theme restaurants and watch a video related to Hard Rock Cafe and answer some questions. Finally they plan their own theme restaurants and describe theme to the other groups.

Points to the sentences and asks : Which one is strong? Which one is weak? Which one is medium? - Elicits the answers. Ask SS - We need some words to make them weak, medium and strong.

Exposure (4-5 minutes) • To provide context for the target language through a text or situation

Each team has a board marker. - T calls out a category that needs to brainstorm. SS have 2 minutes (or whatever) to write all the words they know in that category ( modifiers and adjectives). - S who is first in line runs to board, writes word, runs back to line, gives pen to next S in line and then goes to back of line (i.e. relay). - The teams are playing against each other (i.e. race). - When time is up, T reviews with SS, totals points to declare the winners.
