Teach (15-20 minutes) • To clarify areas of the target language where students had difficulty in the first test stage

After eliciting such vocabularies as a passport, money or a map, working with their partners, the teacher asks the sts to stand up and move around the classroom to look at the pictures of five things we need hanging on the wall and write their names on a paper.
