To give Ss practice in asking and answering questions in present simple in the context of habits and daily routines.
Procedure (35-45 minutes)
The T will show a picture of her best friend and say two sentences about her. Then, she'll give a short paragraph about her best friend to the Ss along with some incomplete questions. Then, she will pair the Ss and have them first, complete the questions individually and then, ask the questions to each other and find the answer from the paragraph.
The T will pre-teach some related vocabulary through a matching activity. She'll put the Ss in groups and give some pictures and sentences including the new vocabulary to each group and have them to match the pictures with the sentences. Then, She'll ask the Ss to work individually to write 5 questions using 'does' to ask about their partner's best friend. The T will write some example questions on the board to do scaffolding.
The T will clarify some related pronunciation points regarding the pronunciation of strong and weak sounds through the finger technique and also, highlighting them on the board. To do so, she'll do repetition and drilling.
First, the T will put the Ss in pairs, give them instructions, and model the task for them to make sure they are all clear about what to do. Then, the T will have the Ss ask and answer the questions they wrote in the previous stage. The T will put the Ss in new pairs and have them ask and answer the questions with their new partners again.
The T will provide the class with a whole class feedback. She will write the errors she collected during the tasks and have the class correct the sentences and drill the correct pronunciation of their mispronunciations.
