review (6-7 minutes) • To refresh the students' information about what they have learnt ( telling and asking about names, jobs, ages, countries and using possessive 's ) .

First I write some information about a person in class and let the students guess who he/she is . When we guess the person, I get another student to make sure that the guessed person is right by asking him questions about his information . Then I ask each student to write about himself/herself in the same way .Next,I collect what they have written , choose one and get a student to read the information . I let everybody thinks and asks many questions to know who the owner of the information is . And so they revise all what they have studied .

Currency Symbol Recognition . (5-6 minutes) • To distinguish between different currency symbols ( dollars,pounds,cents,and euros ).

I just draw the currencies' symbols and check the students' schemata about them. If there is an unclear symbol, I indicate it. Then, I ask the students to match the symbols with their correct words in exercise 1(a).Then, I ask them to listen carefully to the CD to check their answers. then , I ask five students to say the answers and I check them.

I play a video clip using the overhead projector to show the students as many different words as possible about foods and drinks .

Vocabulary competition. (3-4 minutes) • to get the students more involved on the task and to show us what they acquired from the video clip previous stage.

I divide the students into two groups and give each group an empty paper.

Then, a leader for each group come and write words on the board. The winner group is the one that write more vocabulary.
