I will show a slide and students will work in breakout rooms. For meaning they will match definitions with the different phrases. For Appropriacy they will discuss if they phrases are formal, informal, or neutral. 1 Are you doing anything on Saturday? CCQ: Is the person asking for curiosity or because they want to propose a plan? (Is asking if they are free to arrange some plan) 2 Do you fancy eating out?

(Yes) 4 I’m afraid I can’t make it… CCQ: Does I’m afraid mean I’m scared, or it is a polite phrase? 5 Shall we meet on Friday at 6? CCQ: Does shall express intention or imperative? (Intention) 6 How about meeting on Sunday instead? CCQ: Does how about mean suggestion? (Yes) After that I will show a new slide I will ask them to help me recognise the parts of speech in How about meeting on Sunday instead? In the next three sentences, students will decide if the highlighted words are either modal or transitive verbs. Then, students will tell if I can’t make it means possible or impossible. Finally, we will check stress and intonation of the different phrases.
