Clarification (8-10 minutes) • To clarify the meaning, form and pronunciation of the target language

I will tell my students to tell me a sentence including good adjectives about Amanda. I will on the board, for example, She is pretty extroverted. I will ask them what does pretty mean in this sentence? Is it mean beautiful or quite? What do you think it's an adjective or an adverb? Then I will tell them that adverbs are used to describe adjectives, verbs... I will give them another example: She is extremely hard working. So we use pretty/ very/ ... + positive adjective. We use a Little + Negative adjective. for example, She is a little messy. Also, i will tell them how to say things that he loves and this he good at such as: He loves/likes/ doesn't mind +v+ing.
