Elicit – what we do when we meet new people? – ask questions Ss find their new partner by matching the beginning and end of a question Ss in pairs match question halves Monitor and help if needed Ss check against ans key. Deal with any issues Ss in small groups match the qus from ex 1 to their tense – considering if they’re present or past. W/C FB – deal with any issues/questions about form Elicit which 2 tenses are not included – consider why (because past perfect isn’t used in isolation, but in relation to other past tenses to show sequence) Drill questions, focusing on clear models of stress and intonation.
