Procedure (45-60 minutes)
Welcome the Ss. Tell the Ss that they will see a video. Ask the Ss about their dream country. Make a short quiz to know where they really belong. Ask them to write down these two countries to use them later.
Ask the Ss to try to guess the answers individually( EX:1,2,3,4,5,6 page:26). Ask them to work in pairs for peer-check. Tell the Ss that they are going to listen and check their answers and they will also hear one more piece of information about each question. Give them a few seconds to take notes after listening to each question. Then ask them to share what they noted with their partners. Give them feedback.
Ask the Ss to find comparatives and superlatives in the quiz in pairs. Give two examples and ask Ss to identify them. Students do the rest in pairs. Give FB.
Elicit the Tl from the Sts, ask them some CCQs to check the meaning, drill the right pronunciation, and introduce to them the concept of comparatives and superlatives using PowerPoint slides.
Ask Ss to work in pairs to complete each sentence( Practice:1, page 27). Emphasize that they should use two words. Encourage them to attempt to answer each question before looking at the transcript ( page 161). Set the time(5m). Monitor to provide help if needed. Give FB. Ask Sts to work individually to rearrange some statements(HO1). Demonstrate the first one with them. Set the time(3m). Ask them to check their answers in pairs. Monitor the Ss to provide help. Give FB
Tell ss that they are going to play a game, and they will play in pairs. Each of a pair pulls a card from the bunch faced-down and compares the two countries in one minute using what they have learned, then write the statement on the board. Use the alarm every minute to change pairs and pick up a new card. Remember to monitor while they are playing. Ask them if they heard anything funny or interesting while playing. Give feedback.
Ask Ss to make a conversation in pairs comparing between the two counties that they came up with during the lead-in. Help them with some guided words through a powerpoint slide,
