SS will listen to an audio conversation (2:16) for gist and be exposed to this question before listening: "Is Isabel asking Louise for advice or to make plans?" SS will be asked to type answer in private chat to me. SS will then listen to audio again for details and be exposed to this Google form before listening: https://forms.gle/9REXvbsr59FdARdH7.

TT will have SS look at the same sentences again and ask: What Verb form do we use after should, shouldn’t, must, mustn’t? Tt will review form and confirm infinitive verb comes after.
