Task 1 finding out about a person. Show a picture of an interesting person. Students make questions in pairs to ask to find out more about him. Invent interesting answers as we go. Task2 what I'd like to know about you. make pairs. ask students to prepare some questions to ask their partner. pairs then ask each other their questions. FB: students talk about their partners.
Students walk around the class, complete the questions on the wall, and ask and answer them.
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.
