I will start the lesson with an old song about friendship, and I will use it to start a discussion about this topic. I will ask the students if they know the song and what they think about its topic. I will also ask them If they think that Romio is a good friend or not and why.

Exposure (5-7 minutes) • To provide a model of production expected in coming tasks through reading.

This will be done through a reading text. I will teach them some new lexis before reading the text to make it easier for them to understand the text. This will be done during a task. They will work in pairs and match every word to its definition. Then, I will give them a feedback. I will use some CCQs to check their understanding of these lexis and they will repeat the lexis after me. Then, they will read a text about a friend who donated her kidney for her best friend and they will answer some questions about some details. They will check their answers in pairs and with me. After that, they will have conversations to discuss whether they have such loyal friends or not.

Useful Language (5-7 minutes) • To highlight and clarify useful language for coming productive tasks

This will be done during the pre reading stage. I will teach them some new vocabularies that will make it easier for them to understand the text, and this will be done through a task.
