For the same dating profile, students will answer different variety of questions about the text's features such as the adjectives, clauses, and the stages. They will match the paragraphs with the most suitable description and short answer to the other questions.
Students are shown a short dating profile (adjusted to their level) where a woman tells about herself and what kind of a partner she is looking for. They answer three gist questions about the profile and its main idea to have a general understanding.
Students have two people to write a dating profile to. They need to choose one and create a profile according to the profile shown as an example beforehand. The text should be 60-80 words. Individually or in pair will be decided by them. The checklist (three adjective, two someone who phrases and one or more like/dislike sentence/s) is provided while giving the instructions and on the slide.
Once a student is done with their task, another student will check their work. (or pairs) After they check each others' works, they will give an example of error if they have noticed and that will be shown and fixed on the whiteboard.
