Intermediate level


This lesson will be the third. In this lesson, the students will practice both receptive skills "reading & listening". The reading will be about people telling stories of how they met their partners. The listening will be about people giving their opinions about fate or chance. At the end of the lesson, the students will be taught some expressions and later they will have the chance to practice them in a productive skill "speaking".
