My brother isn’t very tall.• Ask stronger students to translate the modifiers into their language.• Give weaker students bilingual dictionaries so that they can find out how the modifiers translate into their language before they look in the description for examples of such words.• Check answers.AnswersHe’s very intelligent, and quite funny, too!My brother’s great, and he’s a very good friend.Language noteModifiers such as very are often stressed in a sentence, particularly when someone is surprised, excited or enthusiastic about what they are saying.4 • Students work alone to complete the sentences.• Ask some students to report back on how their partner has completed his or her sentences.Get WritingPLAN5 • Students should do their planning in class. The writing can either be done in class or at home.• Tell students they are going to write a description of their best friend.• Refer students back to the chart in Exercise 2 and then ask them to work alone to complete the chart with notes about their best friend.WRITE6. Refer students to the language in Exercise 6. Make sure that students know how to use it before you ask them to write their description.• Tell students to use Javier’s description of David as a model to follow. Encourage them to add extra information to their own descriptions, e.g. whether or not the person has brothers or sisters, that person’s interests, what that person usually does in his or her free time, etc.• Give students ten minutes to complete the writing task.• Monitor while students are writing. Help with grammar and vocabulary as necessary.• Encourage students to produce at least two drafts of their description. If students are doing this at home, ask them to write their descriptions on their computers rather than in their notebooks as it will allow them to change the text more easily.7 • Tell students that it is very important that they check their writing in order to look for ways to improve its content, style and structure.• Give students a few minutes to look through their descriptions and check them against the points here.• Collect students’ descriptions and mark them.• Use students’ written work as a means of finding common errors. You can then use these as a basis for revision in the next lesson (but do not refer to who made the mistake). Also remember to share good sentences from students’ work with the rest of the class.HomeworkFor homework, ask students to find an interesting description of a person. If you have a library in your school, students can borrow books (at the right level) from it. If not, ask them to find books in English in their local library. In the next lesson, students read out the description to a partner and then say why they like it, e.g. It’s very funny. You can also set Exercises 1–12 on pages 22 and 23 of the Workbook for homework.Additional InformationDifferentiation – how do you plan to give more support?
