They will discuss their answers in BORs in pairs or groups depending on the size of the class. CCQ- Will you check while you read or after? Check answers back in OC.

Clarification (12-15 minutes) • To clarify the meaning, form and pronunciation of the target language

Meaning: Show ss a cline with the phrase "I hate" as 1 and "I love" as 7.

OK 4- I like... 5- I quite like... 6- I really like... 7- I love... Check OC once everyone has finished. Mention that we can also use the word "enjoy" to talk about things we like doing. (6min) Form: Explain to ss that we can use verb+ing or a noun after the phrase. Before the phrase "is/are OK" There will be two sentences written on the board and T will nominate ss to identify the phrase, verb+ing, or noun in the sentences and highlight with different colors. Share another jamboard and tell ss that they will do the same (highlighting) with 2 more sentences. 1. I love reading. 2. I don´t like parties. Check OC. (5min) CCQ-Can we sayI like the books?
