Methods and Techniques
Question-answer, making sentences
Good morning, students! How are you?
One person thinks of an object (person, place, or thing). Everyone takes turns asking yes/no questions until someone can guess correctly (or until 20 questions are asked). The difficult part is that you cannot ask "wh" questions!
Example: PINEAPPLE. Does it talk? No. Does it make life easier? No. Do you eat it? Yes. Is it something you would eat for dinner? No. Etc...
If someone makes a mistake in forming the question, other club members can help turn it into a proper question.
Checking homework/ Revision of the previous lesson
Now, let’s check your homework.
Students present their dialogues “At school”.
We continue talking about school and education and today you’ll learn some new grammar about adverbs in English language.
First answer the question: What aspects are compulsory in education in our country? Prove your answers.

New grammar: Adverb suffix -ly
An adjective describes a noun with qualities such as size, shape, color, worth, age, origin, and so on. By adding the suffix -ly, the word form may be changed to an adverb (with a few exceptions differing in form or meaning).
MODIFIES THE NOUN
He is an excellent tennis player.
He is a graceful athlete.
He is a smart player.
He is a defensive player.
He is a professional athlete.
He is an expert player.
An adverb provides information about the manner, frequency, degree, or other circumstances of the activity indicated by the verb or verb phrase. A similar meaning can usually be expressed by a prepositional phrase.
MODIFIES THE VERB
He plays tennis excellently. (adverb)
He plays tennis in an excellent manner. (prep phrase)
He moves gracefully.
He moves in a graceful manner.
He dresses smartly. (fashionably)
He plays in a smart way. (strategic)
He will play defensively in tomorrow's game.
