Teacher's example: I am Kate, I am free next weekend and I am going to the beach with my friends. We are going by bus, the bus departs at 08.30 in the morning, that's why I am going to wake up early. Ss will have to ask around to find 2 people and write their plans, one person for July, one person for August. Ss will have 5-7 mins to complete the task. T will be monitoring to find out if Ss use the TL. IF STUDENTS USE TL: T will write down Ss examples on WB and ask CCQ to clarify. IF STUDENTS DON'T USE TL: T will use CCQ to clarify her examples. CCQ: am I talking about the Future? (yes) is this my personal plan? (yes) do I have an arrangement with other people? (yes) do I have any official timetable? (yes)
