I will pre-teach 2 words from the text using a power point, first ask them to match the pictures with the words then I will clarify the meaning, form and the pronunciation and have a repetition drill.for getting feedback students should do a task related to those words and fill the gaps. words: multilingual, demonstrate
students will be asked a question, they should skim the text and answer it then they will check their answers in pair. question:How did he learn different languages?
students will read the text again and they should find specific information to answer some questions. questions like: which languages did he learn as a child?, which language does he like best?
