Exposure (8-10 minutes) • To provide context for the target language through a text or situation

"Nice job guys, you give very interesting answers", but now, I want you to think about the things you are planning to do or would rather do in your free time. So, are you a live wire or a couch potato? by looking at the pictures what do you think is a synonym for live wire? and what about couch potato? "excellent", "now lets take a look at this small test", "you will be reading this text and while you read I want you to identify which of the sentences is a live wire or a couch potato" *jamboard activity You will have 4 minutes for this activity and you will answer individually. ICQ: How much time do you have for this? are you working in pairs or individually? "perfect, so you may start reading now" After the 4 minutes are over "Okay guys so now you are going to be working with a classmate so you can compare your answers. You have 2 minutes for this. *Back in the main room discuss the answers in group.

Highlighting (2-4 minutes) • To draw students' attention to the target language

"Great guys, now that you have identified each statement I want you to read the text one more time, and this time select 5 statements that you feel identified with, then, count them and find one if you are a couch potato or a live wire.

You have 4 minutes for this activity and at the end, we will check it as a group. How much time do you have for this? Are we checking in group or in pairs?

Free Practice (8-10 minutes) • To provide students with free practice of the target language
