Hate List / Fuctional Language
Upper Intermmediate level


In this lesson students will learn about functional language / contrast by practising with even though/ although/ despite and inspite of. The text is provided from the listening exercise from the previous lesson. With sentences that we got from this listening we start our clarification and move on with controlled practice and finalise it in freer practise by having the students speaking in pairs.
