T then elicits the words by giving the definition and asks for the stress and drills when T shows the words. In one slide, T shows some pictures which are related to the listening.

When sts are back, T shows questions: Where was Denisa at midnight? What did she do? Sts listen to the audio once or twice, when the listening is over sts check their answer with each other. If they are four students I will put them quickly in BOR, but if they are 2 or 3 T will close my webcam and ask sts to check their answers with each other. As feedback T shows the answer to those questions.

While-Reading/Listening #2 (10-10 minutes) • To provide students with more challenging detailed, deduction and inference reading/listening tasks
