In this lesson, students improve their fluency skills by speaking. The lesson starts by showing images about recommending places in Iran as a warmup/ leadin activity. Then, students will be asked to brainstorm about places, visiting and so on. Next, in pairs, students will make a list of the cities and place their recommendations to others and share their answers with other students. The lesson is followed by creating sentences activity that will help the students revise the context-related vocabulary. After a short discussion, students will be given some interesting stories about their recommending places in the group. Each student will retell his/her story to the others in turns and finally, they will share the most interesting story with the rest of the class.
