Exposure (5-10 minutes) • To provide context for the target language through an audio track

in this stage Ss first check some questions on page 90 then they are going to listen to a track recorded about trip equipment. they need to find out what quantifiers are used in their conversation. they are going to find the answers IN PAIRS.

Highlighting (2-4 minutes) • To draw students' attention to the target language

Controlled Practice (8-10 minutes) • To concept check and prepare students for more meaningful practice

they will do the exercise on page 91 of the /cutting Edge book and try to find the right quantifier for each noun in sentences and fill in the banks. then they will right the answers on the board. this activity will be done INDIVIDUALLY.

Semi-Controlled Practice (5-8 minutes) • To concept check further and prepare students for free practice

the Ss will be given a text with number of underlined nouns inside. they should extract the nouns then produce sentences on their own. also quantifiers need to be included. this activity is going to be done IN PAIRS.

Free Practice (5-6 minutes) • To provide students with free practice of the target language

Ss will regroup in shape of an ONION while they are given paper strips and pictures of the vocabulary used before. they have to find a matching definition to the pictures in their hands. then they need to give an example to their partner with the word. this activity is going to be done in GROUP.
