Introduction: (15 minutes) • Holiday story,

Teacher starts the lesson by telling the students about her holiday story. She shows some pictures related to her story and will target on the adjectives that students need to learn. I like Antalya because it is a beautiful city. We stay in a big hotel. We eat in the expensive restaurant. The weather is hot but we want to see everything. People are really friendly. In the center of the city there are small stores. We visit old house and take some good photos. There are nice places to see such as the famous waterfall. Then students will take turns and talk about their favorite holiday using the target words.
