In this lesson students learn about how to use the correct pronunciation of "What do you want to do..."? and "Would you like to go to"? They listen to the questions and answers on page 154. R8.8. Then,in pairs they take turns to suggest plans for Friday, and their partners respond, then they role-play. Ask students to pick one of three places for a day out, and don't say where. Students re-read the article and find three reasons why they want to go there.Students work in groups of four and focus on the words in the box.They will make a conversation using all the phrases in the box. . Then one person from each group says where they'd want (using We'd).
