We will talk about the usage of the word 'Whereabouts' . I will read a couple of sentences out loud and give them examples of situations on which they can use the target language using the questions: Q; Where are you from? A: I'm from ______ Q: Really? Whereabouts? A: Not far from_______ I will also ask students to identify the difference in pronunciation between the words lawyer' and 'law' since pronunciation can often be confused, I will show the pronunciation differences on a slide that looks like a highlighted board and compare the two words.
