Ask some question to the students about the context of listening to elicit the new grammar structures.
Write the new structures on the W/B, elicit formula and work on pronunciation. Encourage the students to show other examples.
Ss do ex b on page 143. They fill the gaps with 'use to', 'be used to' and 'get use to' and verbs in brackets. Then they write the answers on the W/B and discuss.
Ss do exercise about the new grammar structure. They read the given sentences, focus on the accuracy of them and find out which is correct , which is wrong. Then they compare their answers with each other in pairs. After this ss are provided with correct answers to check theirs answers.
Students work in pairs and answer to the questions about sleep using the new structures.
