Ss focus on T's example letter. *They have gist questions from the text. *Ss answer the questions and pair check. (Then check from the board.) Ss answer questions about details of the text. (Pair check and check from the board.)
Ss focus on the useful language from the exposure post. They study modals with the vocabulary from the context. *They fill in the blanks of the sentences using the modals given. (Pair check and T shows the answers) *Ss give advices according to the pictures. (Pair Check and T shows the answers.)
In the first productive activity, Ss will discuss and choose what to write in their post. They follow the T's order and get help from the bullet points (*University, *transport, *university's facilities, *lessons) from the board. *Ss change their groups and read the other group's post and then stick their posts to the board. In the freer productive activity, Ss will write a post for their friends who got into the university from the lead-in. *They congratulate and give some advice to their friend. *They stick their posts to the wall and each tries to find the post written for him/herself by their friends..
