Description

In this lesson students learn expressions with "look" through a listening in the context of "fashion". Introduced to the topic through engaging visuals, students discuss their ideas on "looks" and "appearances". After this warm-up, they listen to two gist and detail focused conversations. After practising their listening skills, they do a vocabulary exercise through which they test their understanding of the expressions. Finally, they practise the usage of these expressions through a speaking which allows them to share their own ideas.
