Warmer/Lead-in (2-3 minutes) • To set lesson context and engage students

I will ask some students "what's your name?". After hearing their answer, I will say "it's nice to meet you" and i will purposly write wrongly their name on the board by doing some mistake. I will ask if I wrote it correctly. They will try to correct it. Probably they will get some difficulties. So i will introduce the speaking activity about the 26 letters of the English alphabet. Emphasize the importance of knowing the English Alphabet in order to spell your name (when you are in a foreign country or interracting with a foreigner, it can be difficult for people understanding your name).
