Then, we read and listened about Gina's website (T7.1) and complete some sentences with possessive adjectives and object pronouns.

First, we do an exercise of completing sentences with the information from Elliot's text. Then, we read the grammar point on p. 125 and put into practice the new structures with an oral activity and a grammatical exercise (p. 43, ex. 5,6).
To close the grammar point we finally complete a chart with the present simple forms.
And after that, we listen to a phone conversation between Elliot and his sister Lois (t.6.12). The students write the missing words in the dialogue.
Read the text about Lois on p.44 and complete it with the verb from the box (ex.2).
Write a composition about a friend or a member of your family. (p.45,ex.6).80words. (Deadline 20th January).

We start the class revising the days of the week and the prepositions of time. To consolidate the new structures we complete the exercise 5 on page 47 and ask the questions to our classmates and then, we listen to a pop song 'Friday I'm in love'(The Cure) and complete the blanks in the lyrics.
After that, we read about Elliot's day on page 42. Then, we do a comprehension exercise in which the students have to write the times in a series of sentences.
The students learn about the third person singular in English. To form it we need to add an -s at the end of the verb. And they also study the meaning, use and position of the frequency adverbs like 'always, sometimes and never' (before a verb but after the verb to be).
To finish, the class we practise the pronunciation of the -s at the end of the verbs.
In our next class we'll learn how to form questions and negatives in the third person singular.
