In this lesson Ss will learn about making suggestions and responding to them in the context of choosing a birthday present for a friend. We will brainstorm ideas for birthday presents, identify the TL in a dialogue, then elicit MFPA together with a focus on pronunciation and intonation. After this Ss will complete CP for accuracy and then apply what they have learnt in FP to develop their fluency making suggestions and responding to them.
