T will instruct Ss to quickly read the text while listening to the audio and do the proposed activity, which is about selecting the correct options to complete the missing information. T will check Ss' understanding of the task by using ICQs: * Do you have to write? No * Will you do the activity individually?

Ss will access the link, T will demonstrate how to do the activity for Meaning & Appropriacy by doing with Ss an example, Ss will select the correct expressions and then classify some into the most appropriate category by working in groups and do the activity on their own. Ss will check their answer with the T once they finish as an OCFB. If necessary T will use some synonyms and reformulations to check the meaning: CCQs/Synonyms Are the following sentences commonly used when referring to past & present or cause & effect relationships? The bigger the animal, the more problems you have. = If the animal is big, the problems you have are more. The harder and more resistant the material of the cup is, the stronger your relationship is. = If the material of the cup is hard and resistant, your relationship is strong. 🡪 CAUSE & EFFECT RELATIONSHIP Which of the following sentences is more common to hear: “If the material of the cup is hard and resistant, your relationship is strong” or “The bigger the animal, the more problems you have.”? → If the material of the cup is hard and resistant, your relationship is strong Is this sentence: “If the material of the cup is hard and resistant, your relationship is strong” formal or neutral? → Neutral Is this sentence: “The bigger the animal, the more problems you have.” formal or informal? → Formal Then, T will ask Ss to go to the BORs again to work on Form by completing the grammar rules just by selecting the correct options.
