Encounter (3-5 minutes) • Students are made aware that they don't know the target language

Clarify (10-13 minutes) • Clarify the target language

- The teacher relies on pictures so that students will be able to distinguish between the different parts of the house. First, the teacher will show a picture of a kitchen which some of the students may know as it was mentioned in the food and drinks unit, and so the teacher goes showing pictures and drilling with the class after each vocabulary item is introduced. - The stress the difference between how each part of the house is different in each culture, for example, the Morrocan living room is not the same as the one in English culture. - After writing the name of every single room on the board, the teacher asks the students what can we find in each of these rooms. - The teacher will start eliciting vocabulary from students in Arabic and he will expose them to some the vocabulary they encounter I later stages

- The teacher will give a handout to the students and ask them to in pairs do the first exercise in which they will have to match each part of the house with pictures provided and also name the object and furniture pointed in the picture ( they will be introduced to most of the vocabulary on Clarify stage ) - Students check-in groups. - Whole class feedback and correction. - Students will be asked to do exercises 2 and 3 on the handouts in pairs, which will serve as a review for some and any and also a way to be re-exposed to the target language. - Group check and whole class feedback and correction. - The teacher will introduce students to some of the prepositions of place (IN FRONT OF, ON, UNDER, BETWEEN, NEXT TO, OVER). - Students will be asked to do exercise 4 in pairs. - Feedback and correction - Students will individually do exercise number 5. - Pair check and correction.

Fluently use (7-9 minutes) • Students will be given the chance to use the target language
