Start playing the lottery and give the winner an imaginary ticket to a dinner in an expensive restaurant.
Divide the wb into two and split ss into two groups: and get ss sit in two lines facing each other A and B. Hand out group A, text about Jim, group B text about Sandra. Tell them read and as a group think of a title for the text. Take FB, what titles they have. Hand out green and red cards, ask them to write on a green card the cafe/ restaurant in Istanbul that they like very much and in red one write the place that they don't like.
Hand out the questions ask them to read and find the answers. When they finish with it, pair them A-B and tell them to ask the same questions about the text that they haven't read. So they will know what each others text about. Take FB. " Why does Sandra think that it was a terrible weekend?" Because she broke up with her boyfriend " Do you think her boyfriend really loved her? Why not" No, because if he really loved her, he would never leave her for receptionist.
Write on the board example sentences from the text" Queues were too long, the rooms were too small, it was too cold. Show pictures and let them compare "too" and "very" Give more example sentences and pictures : It is very cold - It is too cold, queue is very long- queue is too long. Remind them the places that they have written in the cards, ask them to share their any good/bad memories about that place. Encourage them to use "very" and "too"
