Ss will drill the stress with the recording and will see on the W/B one example. They will drill the rest in PW, checking each other on the HO, one for each pair, taking turns.
Ss. will fill in the part about themselves in the H/O with forms of TL.
Ss. will drill the pronunciation of the answer form with their own answers. Model on the W/B. Give the stress answer HO. On the HO they will fill 'my partner' column, asking questions to each other. They will add a 9th question of their own. They will also answer to the case 'more information'. e.g. [Where is this park? What is its name? Do you go there?] Model with a pair one question changing roles.
Students will write about what there is at their Favourite Places on a HO. Then they will speak with two other people which are not from their groups and note their names, their favourite place and its properties on the HO.
