Unit 2: The Right Answer Quiz
Upper Intermediate level


In this lesson, Ss learn about different definitions of the word 'Right' through controlled matching and sorting exercises. Then they do a reading activity in the form of a multiple-choice quiz. This is followed by a listening activity which expands the questions included in the quiz. Finally, there is a controlled speaking activity for Ss to practice agreeing and disagreeing.
