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

For free practice, i prepared two activities. for the first one i will put photos of some places on the whiteboard the i will blindfold a student and ask another student to give directions to him or her for a place and the other one should listen and draw it on the board. For the second one, i will make pairs and give every pair a printed maze, then ask one of them to close their eyes and the other one to give directions to exit the maze. The pair that finishes first is the winner.
