Procedure (88-119 minutes)
A brief introduction is given to refresh the subject that will be working in class hours and a little of the structure and resources that are intended to be used is exposed.
It fully enters the structures that will be used (present simple) and the correct way to place what are personalities and qualities, likes and dislikes. Questions are not allowed until after the exposure.
Students have the opportunity to expose their weaknesses in the subject and analyze if it is a common point of the group
Within this allotted time, students are allowed to solve their doubts and give group examples for a better explanation and thus learn more about the vocabulary that is being seen and how it should be worn. The structure and why of it can also be discussed.
Students have available two controlled practice exercises which they must answer in the estimated time
Students have two semi-controlled practice activities to guide them to free practice, in which some exercises are solved differently from the previous ones to use the vocabulary and the time required.
In this free practice, students can explore more in their vocabulary, using what was seen in the stage and also previous knowledge. Although the two activities are practical, one is written and the other is oral, it is important that the latter be moderated/supervised.
