Warmer/Lead-in (3-5 minutes) • To set lesson context and engage students

I will give the ss an anagram of the word "Celebration" and they will have to put in order and if they faced difficulty and I will give them a clue ( another word occasions like birthdays, weddings), it starts with C and ends with n. Ater that I will ask what is the first thing that comes to your mind when you see the word celebrations. Discuss in pairs the best celebration that you ever been to. elicit some ideas.

Exposure (5-10 minutes) • To provide context for the target language through a text or situation

I will tell them you have 3 different celebrations on the wall, read the phrases in groups and stick them under the correct celebration. I will ask them do you think these phrases are ( orders, suggestions, or requests). Now you will listen to Becky and Tom making suggestions, listen and write the missing words. check your answers in pairs. Exercise b: In pairs read and choose the correct answer. elicit the answer from them.

Clarification (8-10 minutes) • To clarify the meaning, form and pronunciation of the target language

first, I will give the students some phrases and they will have to stick them in the table given to them under the correct usage of each phrase. Take a look at these phrases what do they mean? /When do we use them. ( suggestion and I use them when I want to make a careful suggestion). I write on the board:(Don't you think it's a good idea to buy a car) ( Do negative form+ subject+ base form.........,to +infinitive) ( How does it sound if I take this job?) ( WH-question+ helping verb+subject+base form,.....=if clause. I will drill ( Don't you think it's a good idea to get a car)( raise and fall ). I will drill ( I think maybe we should go shopping). I will pause a little when I'm saying the word maybe).

Controlled Practice (5-8 minutes) • To concept check and prepare students for more meaningful practice

The students will be given four different phrases ( making careful suggestions) I will ask them to read the phrases and highlight the wrong words, then write the correct answers. check their answers in pairs.

Free Practice ( speaking activity). • To provide an opportunity to practice target productive skills

the students will choose from three celebrations(wedding, birthday party and graduation party). In pairs, they will organize one of these events together( when, where, party heme, food and drinks, who they will invite), using the target language of making a careful suggestion. After they finish they will share ideas together and then switch. Then the feedback to make sure that they used the correct language.
