After that, he asks the students what subjects they liked / hated and elicits the vocabulary. Next, T tells the Ss that he loves the show "who wants to be a millionaire?'' and explains that they are going to play a short game that is similar. The Ss will be given cards with some questions on it and in pairs, they will try to answer as many questions as they can in two minutes. Then T asks which subjects they would have to study in order to answer those questions.
