After that they will be asked to provide a similar example to prove they have understood the sentence structure (first example will be given as model). Finally, for pronunciation, T will elicit sentence stress and linking, then drill.

Teacher will monitor in case students have questions or need assistance with the task. After that, they will change groups and tell them about their list of tips, and find out if the others can add any ideas to their list.
