Task 2 Write 2-3 sentences about yourself and 2-3 sentences about a friend using am, is, and are. Pair up with a classmate and correct errors in each other’s writing. Then give it to a classmate to read. Your classmate can then summarize the information in a spoken report to a small group.
Take some notes during the tasks for the delayed correction. We'll end on a positive note and if correction is needed we'll comment on their common mistakes. Write them on the board, give them a chance to identify the errors themselves and ask them to contrast what they actually said with what they should have said in pairs.
