Ask Ss to work on ex 1. Ask them to read the questions quickly. Give them HO1. Ss stand up, work in pairs and discuss their experience about the questions. S1 reads the questions for S2, and S2 answers the questions quickly and vise versa.

Test #1 (3-4 minutes) • To gauge students' prior knowledge of the target language

Show Federico's picture on the board. Ask Ss where he comes from. Then show Egypt's picture on the board and ask where he is now. Give them HO1-2, and let them read it quickly. Then, say "Let's listen to Federico", and play the recording. Peer-check and w/c FB (Elicit "appreciated hospitality", "didn't feel comfortable", "felt awful", and "he'd upset Manu" on the board).

Ask Ss to read HO2 (1 min). Tell them to take notes. Give ICQ: Are you going to work alone? Will you take notes? Are you going to answer the questions? Play the recordinig. Ss answer the HO2 individually. Peer-check and w/c FB.

Teach (13-14 minutes) • To clarify areas of the target language where students might have difficulty in the first test stage

Tell Ss to think how Federico's feeling has changed in Egypt. Show 6 phrases on the board, and give them CCQs. Draw a cline on the board by showing 3 categories:1) a present situation, 2) a past situation, 3) a process of change. Work in pairs / group (if it's a big class) . Give Ss strips of each phrase and ask them to post them on the correct place on the board (3-4 min). Drill the phrases.

Test #2 (8-9 minutes) • Check students' use of the target language again and compare with the first test

T tells Ss to make 5 sentence by using the phrases from ex 5 individually. Give them 1 example and then, ICQs: are you going to work in pairs? (no); Are you going to write sentences? How many? (yes, 5) Give Ss HO3. (4-5 min) Monitor and help where needed. Ss in small groups and compare their answers. Nominate few students for FB and find who has the similar experiences.

Free practice (13-14 minutes) • To provide students with free practice of the target language

Ask them to write the answers for 3 questions in 7a individually. Encourage them to use their knowledge and phrases from HO3. ICQs: do you work alone? Are you going to write? How many questions? Are you going to use HO3? Then, give them HO4. (5 min) Ss work in groups (3-4) and discuss their ideas. Monitor and list good examples or errors. W/C FB: Nominate some Ss for their ideas on 3 points.
