This lesson will enable Ss to focus their oral language skills on using and extending their understanding of adjectives with prepositions. Ss will review complex sentences. They will be reminded that adjectives + prepositions make statements about a person's attitude towards something. For example, She is excited about the party tomorrow. Ss will be encouraged to think about their own sentences using different adjectives with different prepositions.
