This lesson is a review of the previous lesson with more examples of giving advice in the context which revolves around dilemmas. The lesson begins by asking Ss if they remember any of the advice Dave gave Derek. Ss are going to look at some more advice from the listening. T will check if Ss know the different verb forms used in giving advice. Next, T elicit some ideas of how to respond to advice. Ss are going to look at some responses Derek gave. Ss will then do Ex 2 and discuss in pairs what advice they think was given. Ss will then have practice with jumbled sentences. Ss then have to discuss Ex 4 in preparation for speaking. Hand out role cards and split class into Groups A and B to discuss their cards. Bring class back with A and B pairs to practice giving advice. If there is time, do errors on the board to correct them.
