First, students need to just complete phrases with words from the box. The task includes the following phrases: on purpose, in a hurry, by mistake, all of a sudden, out of nowhere, by accident. Then, they move to another activity. They have to read two short stories which are somehow connected with the provided images. One of the is a love story and the other is a crime story. Their task is to complete a table with adverbs and time markers they find in the texts. Next, they read another story. This time, it is a mystery story, and students have to find mistakes in that text. The mistakes are related to the vocabulary they’ve learnt in the previous tasks.
