ICQ1: What is this month? ICQ2: What is next month? ICQ3: What was last month? ICQ4: What is the 4th month of the year?

Highlighting (4-6 minutes) • To provide Ss a drilling activity to practice the language

Following, T starts a chain drill and asks a student’s birthday. Moreover, T encourages the student to ask the same question to another student. As Ss ask each other’s birthdays, they are supposed to write the name of their classmates. The next activity (Activity 1.C) requires students to categorize the months into summer and winter months in Turkey. ICQ1: When is your birthday? ICQ2: What months are summer/winter?

Pre-Reading (3-5 minutes) • Ss will be able to skim the text and get general idea about the text and guess the title.

Ss are supposed to read the text again and match the target lexis (adjectives) to the related pictures (Activity 2B) . They check their responses in PW. This time, Ss read the text more carefully and answer some comprehension questions (2C). ICQ1: Is it good to go to Dubai in August? ICQ2: What is Rome like in July? ICQ3: What is the south of Mexico like in October? Is it a good time to go there? ICQ4: I want to go skiing in Canada. When is the best time?
