To provide practice of compound nouns and adjectives.
To provide free speaking practice using the target language
Procedure (44-58 minutes)
Show students pictures of common compound nouns and adjectives. Elicit the words displayed in the pictures. Elicit the words: compound nouns and agjectives.
In pairs/groups students match two halves of the compound words. Once they've done give them HOs with the definitions and ask them to match each word with its definition.
Record the target language on the board. Focus on the meaning, form and pronunciation. Provide sufficient drilling.
In pairs, ask students to fill in the gaps with words they've just learnt. Check the answers in feedback.
Using the HOs from the previous activity, students sit in pairs to ask each other questions using the target language. In feedback, each student says one thing they knew about their partner.
