1. Copy one handout for each pair of students, and cut them up in two.
2. Put the students into pairs, and distribute a half handout to each individual student.
3. Focus students' attention on the chart. Students should spend five to ten minutes explaining the trade statistics in front of them. Encourage students to consider the ranking of countries in the table and the balance of trade between exports and imports.
4. Finally, elicit responses from some of the students and draw to their attention any appropriate vocabulary or serious language mistakes.
