Warmer/Lead-in (6-8 minutes) • To set lesson context and engage students

students see an image of a couple named Roberto and Julian visiting Istanbul. The SS predict where they are from and what they do. I write their answers on the WB and at the same time i write them in the contracted form. In the end,i write a sentence that is grammatically incorrect to assess their awareness of the plural To be verb.

Exposure (5-7 minutes) • To provide context for the target language through a text or situation

The SS get on with exercise 6 and answer the questions on their own and then check them up in pairs. While eliciting the form, it is essential to highlight the pronunciation for the contracted forms of You're and Your. The recording can further expose them to the correct pronunciation. this is followed by choral and individual drills.
