After they will finish the teacher is going to ask them some questions to present new vocabulary like: 'Does she look beautiful?' What do you think? Is he a rich man?' etc. The teacher will write all new words on the WB.
The teacher will give simple definitions to present new words; she/he will explain the differences between similar words. Then the teacher will drill some words to make the students to learn and practice pronunciation, intonation and word stress. After that she/he will ask the students to write 3 sentences using new words; then they will work in pairs to check each other's sentences. Then the teacher will ask if they found some mistakes while checking. After that teacher will ask them to do ex. 1 on the page 42 (Vocabulary part) and explain what they are going to do by giving the example on the WB. The student will do this task individually.
