*First I will explain the difficult vocabularies in the context through eliciting; -A word like ''candidates'' I will write it with the blue marker and introduce it by asking them; ''what we call the person who is competing to get a job or elected position.'' May be some students will know it based on the previous lesson " Job hunting''. Also I will introduce the other meaning ''some one who is taking an exam'' and ask them about its part of speech and write (adv.) beside the word with the red marker. - Another word " faux pas'' I will introduce it too through eliciting by showing them a picture of social misbehave and asking them to describe this behavior. Then write the '' faux pas'' while saying it and asking them to repeat it with writing the transcription above it with the green marker and asking them about the part of speech with writing ''N.'' with red. - The last word will be '' cultivate'' I will introduce it by showing them a picture of a man preparing a land and growing crops and asking them if used a word meaning preparing land and growing crop in job field what would be its meaning? And write the word cultivate with blue and (V.) with red.

Then I will divide them into two groups of five learners to discuss what other factors could impact on job opportunities and write it down.
