Focus sts on the picture and establish what the event is (a wedding). Demonstrate the activity with a student and tell them to pick one person from the picture and describe him/her to his/her partner using the language you provided with them. ICQ: "Is your partner going to guess the name you picked?" "Are you going to say his/her name to your partner?" Sts stand up and ask one another and try to guess the names. "This person is wearing a long white dress. She looks hapy!" "Who is she?" For ex 3b, Sts work in pairs, look at the picture again and guess the names of the people 1-6.
