The lesson starts by showing Ss some pictures of the two countries. There will be two columns on the board, one for Egypt and one for Turkey and the Ss stick the pictures in its correct country. There will be a controlled activity in which the students will received a fact file containing some information about the two countries, three or four questions will be asked and Ss in pairs answer the questions and write it on the board. A semi controlled activity will be predicted by the Ss as the teacher will present a place and the Ss complete forming a comparative sentence. One last freer activity Ss will practice as they will form two sentences, in each sentence compare any two things they know about their country or city.
