In this lesson students learn about functional language in the context of real world shop language. The lesson will start by learning vocabulary and recapping vocabulary from the previous lesson. Students will then listen to a conversation in a shop to find out what the person in the shop buys. After that the students will put the sentences that the shop assistant says in the correct order. Students will then do a role play activity with disappearing text. At the end students will play a quick ball game to recap the TL of this lesson.
