Main Aim: To Develop Ss listening/reading skills for gist and specific details in the
context of 'The Clinging Woman'

Sub Aim: To develop Ss oral fluency in this context

The approach I will use: Skills based approach

recognise lies and truths from effective questioning

playing these from handouts given
