Goals

Examples:
We went out for dinner and dancing and the icing on the cake was when my
boyfriend asked me to marry him.

Students will be able to use language to


effectively and appropriately meet and
greet others in social situations
commonly encountered on campus.

I was excited when our teacher invited us to watch a movie with him. But when he paid
the tickets for all of us, that was the icing on the cake.

Intended Learning
Outcomes

My last trip to Beijing was fun and traveling there by plane was just the icing on the
cake.

Pair Activity: Two Circles (10 min)

c.

Divide the class into two groups of equal size. Each group forms a circle
an inner and an outer one, both groups facing each other.
If possible, play some music and have the students go around in the circle
until the music stops. Now every student from the outer circle should
have a partner from the inner circle.
First, have the students from the outer circle extend invitations to their
counterpart in the inner circle and the inner circle respond accordingly.
Whenever the music starts playing again, each circle begins rotating again
(one clock-wise, one counter-clockwise). When the music ends they
should be facing a new partner and should be extending and excepting/or
if they want refuse invitations again.
After five minutes roles change. The inner circle offers invitations the
outer one accepts/refuses.

Well, it was cold and windy, but not wet. I wore a heavy wool sweater and we walked quickly to keep warm.
I love walking in the woods. Its so peaceful and quiet.
Yeah, it was very quiet once we got away from the highway. There were birds and squirrels everywhere.
Wow, it sounds wonderful. Did you spend the whole day in the woods?
No. William had to work in the afternoon. I went home around one.
What did you do for lunch?
We brought sandwiches with us. We stopped for lunch around twelve, and we sat and watched the squirrels
for a while, but it was too windy to sit long.
Well, it sound like a very nice walk, anyway.
