Why did you dislike it? 2-3 minutes T nominates one student from every pair to share their answers to the rest of the class. 1 minute

Text work (5-7 minutes) • To provide context for the target language through a text or situation

T projects a Google site with a short forum entry showing the usage of the functional language: I think you should..., You should..., You shouldn't..., Why don't yo...?, I (don't) it's a good idea to... Find... -highlighted in bold- and ask Ss to answer the reading task (individually) according to the reading. 2minutes Are you reading for general understanding or for details? (for details) Are you working individually? (Yes) Do you have to select true or false or write? (select true or false) Ss go to breakout rooms, in pairs or trios, discuss their answers. 3min How much time do you have for this activity?
