The teacher puts the students in pairs. A slide containing three topics will be projected on the board and the students will be asked to listen to the audio file once and choose one. ICQs: "How many times are you going to listen to the audio file?" "What are you going to do after you listen?" The answer will be checked in pairs. Then the teacher gets the whole class FB.

Highlighting target language (4-6 minutes) • To highlight the target language so that the learners are focused on it

" What should you underline?" The answer will be checked in pairs first which will be followed by WCFB and underlining the answers on the projected script on the board.

Clarifying target language (10-12 minutes) • To clarify meaning, pronunciation, and form so learners understand and know how to say and construct it

The students will be asked to discuss a question in pairs: What kind of forms can you see after say/tell in the script? The teacher will get WCFB. Then the teacher clarifies the grammar points by writing two of those sentences on the board. MFP will be done on the marker sentences.

Controlled practice (7-9 minutes) • To provide controlled written practice focused on using the language accurately

The teacher gives the students a handout containing five scrambled sentences and asks them to put the words in the correct order in their pairs.

The teacher chests a HO containing two unfinished sentences and asks the students to complete them and check with their partners afterwards. ICQ: "Should you answer any questions?" Some of the sentences will be put on the board to show some possible answers. Then the teacher will ask the students to talk in pairs and use those sentences in the context of " a lie". ICQ: "Should you talk about sports or a lie?" The teacher will monitor the students and takes notes. Some students will be asked to report their partner's sentences to the class. Error correction will be done if needed.

If-time activity (4-5 minutes) • To create the opportunity to clarify the target language through more examples
