Procedure (38-46 minutes)
In this part of the lesson, I will make up a story and tell them: "At the weekend, my best friend invited me out to have dinner together, but I had lots of work to do. So I couldn't go out. What do you think I told my friend to reject her?" I will give them boardmarkers and tell them to write their answers on the board. When they finish, I will give them a short feedback.
In this stage I will give the students Exercise 1 and they will find the correct answer. They will work in pairs for this activity. When they finish they will listen an audio and check their answers. Then they will listen it again and find the sentence stress for each sentences. After that, I will divide the class into two groups "Group A and Group B". They will drill the dialogue. Then As and Bs change their roles. When they finish this activity I will give them Exercise 2 and they will match the expressions there with the ones in Exercise 1. They will work alone first then check their anwers with partners. I will reflect the answers on the board with OHP.
In this part of the lesson, I will divide the class into two group. This time group members will be different. I will ask them to write eight yes/no questions to ask for personal information. They will ask them to their partners. Their partners will have to answer them in the negative even if the answer is true. They are going to find out when their partner is not telling the truth. I will demo it with a couple of students.
