Lead in task: "Shout it out" game and eliciting. (0-10 minutes) • To have the interest of students on the topic, activating their lexis and introducing some new vocabulary.

The teacher creates two characters and Ss name them. They are lovers and they will go to cinema together. According to this context, I will divide the class into two groups. I will have a list of vocabulary. The students will try to guess the vocabulary in my list. They have 10 guessing options. If a team shouts out a word on my list, they get one point. I will write the vocabulary they find on the WB. Later, I will try to elicit the other words in my list and write them as well. I will introduce some collocations here. The words in my list are: watch a movie/film buy a ticket go to a movie sit at the front/at the back/in the middle read the film reviews actor/actress comedy/action/romantic/scary movies be in floods of tears be on the edge of my seat get upset get frightened ICQs: Will you write your word? (No.) Will you shout it? (Yes) I will do demonstration if needed. CQs: Can I say take a ticket? Can I say see film reviews? Can I say read a film? Why? Can I divide these words?

Task 2: Matching activity (0-5 minutes) • To make the Ss practice the collocations.

I will divide them into pairs and give them the collocations I showed them before. The collocations will be divided. They will match them. I will give them the answer sheet. ICQ: Will you group or match the words? With your partners?

The Ss will be divided into groups.They will write their own questions. They will ask their questions to each other. I will monitor them and do error correction afterwards.
