T greets the class and talks about beautiful destinations. She presents visuals of some destinations and asks ss where they would like to visit. She elicits agreeing and disagreeing phrases and writes useful language in the chat box. Then, ss are encouraged to add more.
T presents the chart for video. The whole class watch the video to check if the agreeing and disagreeing phrases the class noted down are used in the video and add new ones in the chart.
The class watch the video again. Then, T divides the class into groups. Ss check each others' answers in the agreeing - disagreeing phrases chart. Ss rehearse the video conversation by using the phrases they noted down. They talk about their own favourite vacation destinations. T visits the groups to encourage the target language use.
Ss work as pairs in break-out rooms to choose a place for their holiday. T monitors the break-out rooms and takes notes to give feedback in the following stage.
Ss reflect upon the previous stage. They announce the class where they have decided to visit and how they have convinced each other. T highlights the good samples of the target language. She encourages self-peer error correction.
