Immediate Preparation (3-5 minutes):

Today advertising persuades people of different nationalities to use the same products.

...

However, many people, getting older, prefer peace and fresh air of countryside.

 

2. Invite each player to write in their notebook a short report, beginning and ending with the given sentences. Allow the students a reasonable amount of time for dompleting this task. While they are writing, circulate, monitor and assist, if necessary.

How to Play. When everyone is ready, bring the class to order. Afterwards, invite the players to take it in turns coming to the front of the other students and reading aloud their essays. The player, whose report is considered to be the best, becomes the winner of the game. If necessary, you can invite the players to vote.

Advice. Since the task takes a long time to complete, it would be more feasible to set it for homework. In this case, the game itself should be carried out in the following lesson.
