1. Copy one handout for each pair of students, and cut the sheets in two.
2. Put the students into pairs, and distribute a half handout to each individual student.
3. Focus students' attention on the instructions in A (a writing task). Either individually or in pairs, look at the fixed expressions underlined with the examples in bold. Get students to think of two more example phrases used with the fixed expressions for each. Request feedback after students have spent 5-7 minutes doing this.
4. Next (B), get students to think of one famous building in their town. Ensure students keep the name of the building secret. In pairs, get students to explain the anonymous building to their partner using the fixed expressions 1-8. The listening partner asks questions and tries to guess its name. If necessary, get students to describe two or three buildings, perhaps from other countries.
5. Monitor the students, providing language input or error correction when necessary.
6. Finally, elicit responses from some of the students and draw to their attention any appropriate vocabulary or serious language mistakes.
