Procedure (35-45 minutes)
-T displays (slide1) showing a picture of a busy lady. -T asks the students to take a look at the picture. -T asks the Ss to discuss the prompting questions and points displayed underneath the picture (Breakout rooms). -T monitors the Ss as they discuss the picture and the prompting questions (no interference is needed as long as the Ss are discussing). -T listens to Ss after they get back from the breakout rooms.
-T displays (slide2) showing the same picture. -T explains that the lady is extremely busy, however, she wants to do so many things which she can't due to lack of time. -T asks the students to try to generate some sentences regarding the busy lady (breakout rooms). -T monitors the Ss as they discuss and generate sentences using the target language. -T could interfere in case the Ss needed help. -Ss express their thoughts once they get back from the breakout rooms. -T displays (slide3) containing a short text. -T asks the Ss to read and discuss some points regarding the text. -T monitors the Ss as they discuss in breakout rooms. -T asks the students to highlight the target language.

T explains that questions intonation is different from positive and negative sentences. -T drills until the Ss get it. (Slide 6 could be skipped if time is needed) -T displays (slide 6). -T displays questions and asks the Ss to answer it. -T elicits the answer from the Ss.
