'would we normally use stale with person or food?' * T - elicits opposites from Ss
* T - gives Ss a HO matching task * Ss work in pairs to match the opposites (adjectives) followed by matching adjectives to nouns * T - completes answer key on WB * Ss peer check answers * T - checks Ss understanding of how many different adjectives can be used before the same noun - but not all!
* Ss listen to and audio * T - writes an example of word stress on the WB * T - elicits the word stress from Ss * Ss - listen to audio again to check for answers
