After that Ss read some facts about Bursa on the wall and then discuss again with their partners where else they would like to go after seeing some places.
Ss examine teacher's own plan for the next week. His friend is coming to Bursa and he makes a plan to go some places in Bursa with him. They practice previous lesson's verb patterns and it provides a model for their production. They look at the pictures of the places and listen to T's story. At the end, they answer questions about the plan to check Ss comprehension. Ss answer these questions individually and then they check their pairs' answers.
Ss highlight to the language T used while telling his plans while working on the worksheet. They focus on the verb patterns and they highlight the adjectives from the T's plan. It's an individual study. They individually study on the concept and then check their answers from their pairs.

They stick their mini plan on the wall and every group have a look at it. Then they set up new groups with a pair. They work together and make a five day trip using the verb patterns and adjectives. They publish their work again on the wall and each group examine the plans to vote and decide one best trip plan.
