Highlighting (3-6 minutes) • To draw students' attention to the target language

Students have to look at the picture and match the food and drink with the photos. Ask which list has plural nouns. Ask Students to check their answers in pairs, then, stand up and check the answer keys on the walls.

Clarification (10-12 minutes) • To clarify the meaning, form and pronunciation of the target language

Ask the students if they can count the apples. Show them the pack of apple juice and ask them what is inside the pack. Then, ask them if we can count the juice. if they say no, ask them, how we can count it. Write the 4 sentences on board. Ellicit when we write "is" and "are". Ellicit the rules and drill the sentences.

Controlled Practice (10-12 minutes) • To concept check and prepare students for more meaningful practice

Students will listen to the recording and tick the food and drink Daisy likes and the food and drink Piers doesn't like. Students have to check their answers in pairs, then, stand up and check the answer keys on the walls. Students need to listen again to the recording and write D or P to complete who said those sentences. Have students check their answers in pairs, then, stand up and check up the answers on the walls.

Freer Practice/ Feedback (8-10 minutes) • To provide students with free practice of the target language

Have the students talk about the list of food and drink by discussing in pairs what they like, what they quite like and what they don't like. Demonstrate one example. Have 2, 3 or 4 pairs (depending on time) talk about their partners' preferences.
