Highlighting the target language (4-5 minutes) • To draw students' attention to the target language

( e.g. she points to simple past and asks: 'Is this something that happened in the past and is finished?) She clarifies the differences between the two tenses by eliciting mostly.

Language practice/ Controlled Practice (6-7 minutes) • To clarify meaning so learners understand it/ to clarify form so learners understand how to construct it/ to clarify pronunciation so learners know how to say it
