To provide useful vocabulary in the context of describing people as they will be doing comparatives and superlatives in the following 2 sessions.

To provide fluency speaking practice in a conversation using what they wrote in "describe your best friend" section.
Procedure (43-51 minutes)
I will set the context by putting the photos of two Turkish celebrities on the WB and ask what they know about them, elicit their answers but if they cannot come up with appropriate assumptions, I will ask them if she is beautiful or he is handsome, to check what they already know.
1-The pictures are set on the WB with the words on the other side and if they cannot match them, I will show them with my gestures to make them guess 2-instuctions: match the words with the pictures 3-they match the words with their meanings in pairs
1- HO1 is distributed 2-Instuctions: there are 4 people here and here(pointing the paragraphs) are their descriptions, match the words with the correct picture.(I will try to give instructions as simple as possible). 3-They will be given 5 mins for this activity, when they finish FB will be given on the board.
1-I will show them a picture on the board and tell that she is my favorite celebrity and write 3 sentences about her on the board. Show them the form: she,he is beautiful/tall/short.. I am tall/short.. you,we,they are tall/short.. Then I will show them a picture of people standing next to each other and ask them two write 3 sentences about 3 of them in pairs.
If I still have time after feedback and error correction I will give the class a short picture dictation. As I read the description, the students draw the picture of the character. When they are finished, they can compare each others’ drawings. Finally show them the real photo.
1-Have the students make proper sentences by using the prompt cards to check their understanding
