T chests H/O.1 and tells Ss: "I'm going to give you a handout about the listening. I want you to listen and fill in the blanks" ICQ: What is the listening about? ICQ: What are you going to do? FB: T asks groups of Ss to check their answers together.

Clarifying target language (12-15 minutes) • To clarify meaning so lerners understand it

T puts the following marker senteces on the board: - I haven't been feeling well for a few days. - I have taken my temperature 5-6 times today. And asks: "Tell me the difference between these sentences" "Why do we use present perfect / present perfect continuous?" "What is the difference between these sentences?"

Language practice #3 (10 minutes) • To provide freer oral practice and use the language productively and personalize the language.
