In this lesson Ss will practice speaking and revise vocabulary to consolidate what has been learned in unit 2. It will start with a song about money (Boys and Girls), then there will be a vocabulary game to revise previously taught vocab (Board Rush). After that, the teacher will remind Ss of how to form questions and will help them elicit the importance of asking follow-up questions. Finally, a communicative AB activity will be given to Ss to work on.

- T. asks Ss to listen to a song and answer a question. "Please listen to the song and answer this question: What are the things that a man pays for according the song?" - T. asks Ss to check their answers with their partners, gets FB from them and quickly shows them an answer key. (the man will basically foot the bill for vacations, shopping sprees, all what a woman wants, etc.)

Preparing to Speak: Stage 1 (7-10 minutes) • To provide an opportunity to prepare for the speaking task

- To help Ss with vocabulary, T. will play a vocabulary game called (Board Rush). - T. will stick some previously studied vocab to the board and will divide the class into two teams with each team standing in a line facing the board. - T. will provide the definition of one vocab item and the first one in each line should find the word and take it first. - The winning team will be the one with more words.

Preparing to speak: Stage 2 (7-7 minutes) • To provide an opportunity to prepare for the speaking task

- T. uses some examples from the PPT to elicit the importance of asking follow-up questions and answering more than yes/no. - T. helps the Ss with the question forms in the present simple, present perfect, and past simple by analysing MPF where necessary.

Useful Language (5-7 minutes) • To provide language which Ss may find useful for completing the task.

The number of Ss in class will decide on which one the T. will go for. - In either case, each A S will be facing B S - Both A and B will take turns asking each other the questions in their respective sheets. When any of them gets an answer they are supposed to ask their partner a follow-up question. - Once they hear the T. clapping, Ss need to move forward so that they face another partner and do the same. - T. may demonstrate this - Ss start the speaking activity T. monitors and uses the DEC sheet for taking notes
